Honkytonk revisionists out of Oakland, Crying Time plays straight-up country and western music, from Bob Wills to Glen Campbell with whistle stops in between. Their original songs sit pretty in the mix – you’ll think you heard these tunes on your daddy’s stereo when you were little. Jill Rogers is a singer’s singer with a 1974 voice and a story to tell, and Myles Boisen is a hero of juke joint licks on the six string and lap steel guitar. Bay Area music scene veteran Tony Marcus’s fiddle weaves through the songs while Tim Rowe on drums and Smilin’ Pete Garellick on bass hold down the rhythm with grace, style, and swing. Steel guitar legend Bobby Black frequently sits in with the band, too.
