“Ocean Blues” from Atlanta, Georgia.
Best described as crossover music, Crane has a sound that is all his own. Musical influences range across the board, but most prevalent in his current writing would be Soul, Reggae, R&B, and Pop. Hypothetically, you might find him on tour with Ben Harper, G Love, The Dirty Heads, Citizen Cope, or Allen Stone.
With an average of 250 performances per year, including 5,000-attendee festivals, cruise ships, dive bars, and wing joints, Crane’s motivation in 2018 has been a business-minded focus on “not keeping the band a secret anymore.”
Since the release of the “I Love Women” EP in September of 2014, Crane has toured non-stop. In the midst of a rigorous live performance regime, he’s managed to find himself with a new management team, new content, new material, and writing with even more Grammy Award winners and International-touring artists. We look forward to releasing all of the new music that has been developed since the “I Love Women” EP.
“Working with Crane over the past year has been exciting. His ability to go at the creation of songs with an open creative mind makes it beneficial in our writing sessions. He has a great work ethic, from booking his own shows and the fact that he supports himself through music puts him a step ahead of the rest. I am looking forward to working more in depth on his project and the release of the material we have created together.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Crane in the studio – some of the most pleasurable sessions I’ve ever had. He’s incredibly professional, talented, and works hard, what more can you ask for in an artist?”

“Anthony is a blues baked singer/songwriter born and bred from that red Georgia clay. He has a smokey, whiskey-soaked voice that will reach down the back of your throat and grab your fucking spine. He has an onstage presence that will make you believe he should have been in Midnight Of the Garden of Good and Evil. All by himself-Anthony Crane is a good time…”
