Are you someone hungry for new ear candy? Do you find yourself muttering, “I knew them before they were big,” to nauseating effect in conversations? Welcome to #AreaCode, an original series on the Rock it Out! Blog that focuses on up and coming bands and artists from around the country.
This time, we’re dialing up area code #616 a.k.a. Grand Rapids, MI to spend some time with the five-piece folk-rock band The Crane Wives. In addition to entertaining you with a performance of their song, “The Glacier House”, they talk about how the Grand Rapids music community fosters community and friendship over competition. They also discuss the pros of having multiple vocalists in the band and how they go about writing their songs.
