David Crosby

Label: Blue Castle Records

Release Date: January 28, 2014

Review Date: January 26, 2014



Legendary singer-songwriter David Crosby will release Croz, his first solo album of studio material in 20 years.  And let me say it right here, right now: It’s been well worth the wait.  In fact, it’s freakin’ amazing!


Featuring 11 new original songs, Croz is a digital and physical release on Blue Castle Records, the label Crosby co-founded with Graham Nash in 2011; distribution is through ADA. The songs are smooth, captivating and thought provoking – just what you would expect from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.


In support of the release, Crosby and his touring band are performing a series of concert dates in early 2014. The shows will feature repertoire spanning Crosby’s entire career, including songs from Croz and his 1971 solo debut If I Could Only Remember My Name, as well as selections from The Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and his partnership as a duo with Nash. Accompanying Crosby on the road are James Raymond (keyboards), Shane Fontayne (guitar), Kevin McCormick (bass), Steve DiStanislao (drums, percussion), and Marcus Eaton (guitar).


“I admit I have been lucky, but this tour is really a high point for me,” says David Crosby. “I get to go out and play this record that we have made LIVE: the studio is good but live is even better. I am going to have a blast, and I suspect anyone else who comes to see us will too.”


David Crosby, James Raymond, and Daniel Garcia produced Croz; and, Crosby and Raymond (David Crosby’s son) co-wrote a number of the songs together. In addition to Crosby’s band, the album features guest players including Wynton Marsalis (Holding On To Nothing), Mark Knopfler (What’s Broken), Leland Sklar (Find A Heart) and Steve Tavaglione (Morning Falling, Find A Heart).


Crosby is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, inducted with The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash; he is also in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.  In addition to his solo work, Crosby still tours and records with CSN, CSN&Y, and as a duo with Nash.  He has written books— Stand and Be Counted: Making Music, Making History/The Dramatic Story of the Artists and Causes That Changed America, and the autobiographical volumes Long Time Gone and Since Then: How I Survived Everything And Lived To Tell About It.
