L.A. band Jeff Crosby and the Refugees are performing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Sept. 22

Connection to wild land is what inspires Jeff Crosby’s music

Jeff Crosby and the Refugees are embarking on a tour that will take them all over Western Canada, including a stop in Golden.

Jeff Crosby and the Refugees are embarking on an extensive Canadian tour that will take them all over Western Canada over the course of 10 days, including a stop in Golden.

Jeff Crosby, who is no stranger to his neighbours in the north, grew up mere miles (or kilometres) from the Canadian border in Idaho. Now residing in Los Angeles, his songs still have strong connections to the wild land that he grew up in.

Over the past year Jeff Crosby has built a tight relationship with songwriter Jerry Joseph, signing to his record label, Cosmo Sex School last year. Jeff’s new EP, “Silent Conversations” was released to much critical acclaim and will have his song “Oh Love, Oh Lord” featured on the hit show Sons of Anarchy on Sept. 24.

Jeff Crosby and The Refugees have been on quite a roll this summer, criss crossing the US opening for and backing Jerry Joseph. Now the band is set to perform in Canada for the first time and they couldn’t be more excited.

This tour will feature B.C. favourite Buckman Coe from Vancouver as support for each show.

They will be performing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Sept. 22. To hear some of their music, go to jeffcrosbymusic.com.
