Christina Crofts Band
A review of the 2008 Midnight Train album describes her as “Lucinda Williams meets Rory Gallagher downunder” and is considered an appropriate description by those familiar to the music of Australia’s queen of blues/rock and slide guitar, Christina Crofts.
Blues Arcadia combine the legendary soul of Stax and Motown with the heat and power of the Chicago and Memphis blues to create a unique dirty-soul sound delivered with swagger, style and sensitivity.
