"CREW" IN REVIEW:
J.C's styles and multi octave abilities has found fans and high chart ranking including #1's throughout the world especially in the States with extensive airplay in Australia and abroad. In spite of his obvious Genre crossing ability Crew stays true to his Country Roots. With his simple one guitar no bells or whistles approach it's hard to get it so right treating every track as a live audition, to say the least he gets it done. That's old school. This Western Victorian Country boy tells it how it is.
All of JC's songs are recorded live and sound best loud as live always will.
JC was born in Melbourne and bought up on a farm in the wimmera malley victoria, was in choirs as a child between the ages of 5 and 12, was in his first band at 16 where they played local shows and acted as a support band, and in his second band at 19. JC'S tracks are available for puchase at these sites
Steel Symphony was written for piano by Jeff crew and has been adapted to guitar.
SUMMARY OF MATERIAL:
Who I Am
Who I Am aims to cause awareness of dementia and attempts to give the listener a sense of the brutal nature of the illness and the reality those effected might face.
Hurt focuses on the common vulnerability of being a human and is a reminder of the fact that we all will know pain sometime in our lives and that no matter who we are we can not avoid it but must except it as a fact of life.
Sad Ole' Ukulele
Sad Ole' Ukulele is a tribute to our anzacs as much as it is a reminder of what they endured and suffered for the prosperity that we endure today as Australians.
Cowboys Ropes and Dreams\ Memory Lane
Cowboys Ropes and Dreams\ Memory Lane are tributes to the American cowboy and ranch life. The Australian droving tradition and practices were heavily influenced by Americans in the 19th century. These two tracks in essence are a mark of respect of that fact.
Roll'n Jack (ISRC CODE: AU-KOA-12-00008)
Roll'n Jack is a tribute to the many trucking men and women of society.
