"As The Crow Flys is the newest edition to the alt-folk acoustic train that has made the Ann Arbor/Ypsi area a regular stop. These passengers come to us by way of the blues car full of smoke and smelling of whiskey and spilled beer. Their standards pay homage to past greats and their originals delve into the peripheries just outside the vision of most." Singer/songwriter Frank L. Wright, Ypsi Crossroads Music Festival
"As The Crow Flys are a bluesy folk-rock duo from southeastern lower Michigan. Singer Sue Nordman croons stories of sad existentialism in a smokey warble while guitarist John Hicks provides musical backdrops for these soul-searching journeys that range from hypnotizing to soothing to downright depressive. The two met at a local blues jam several years ago and have been performing together regularly for the past year. They have gained notoriety for their electrifying performances, natural stage presence, and wide range of material. The pair strike a great balance between originals and covers. Perfect for fans of Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, The Cowboy Junkies, Jim White, and Janis Joplin."
Singer/songwriter Ian Pinchback
