A duo match made in heaven. We started playing together in the summer of 2013 together with Joe Wrabek in the north Oregon coast band, Coaster.
LOL - so far it's a full year of bliss. Excited about performing as a duo and continuing work on Two Crows Joy's first album with 11 of Russ's original songs ... err CD, of course.
We love to play live. Had a standing Friday night gig summer of 2013 (as Coaster) and occasionally only two of us could be there. Russ's music brought a whole new dimension to the band, and we decided to focus on his originals and started performing as a duo. We've had a busy summer 2014 playing local restaurants and events on the north Oregon coast - having a blast.
Visit Russell James' page here on soundclick - he's an amazing songwriter.
Nothing worth writing about - cobbled together sound system. It works.
Russ writes the songs. Jane accompanies him on fiddle and sometimes guitar and vocal harmonies. And as the songs are recorded, Jane's skills as a sound engineer are developing, too. The tracks will be mastered by Larry Schaeffer, Coast Recording in Nehalem.
Hopefully we'll post more of Two Crows Joy very soon.
