Deborah Crooks


Bay Station

"This band admirably reflects the wealth of music explored by Hot Tuna, they have that James Gang (Joe Walsh) metabolism, that Grateful Dead / Jerry Garcia Band homegrown classicism, and that ability to strike just the right chord with everyone in an appreciative audience." — John Apice, No Depression

BAY STATION (nee KCDC)  finds songwriter/musicians Kwame Copeland (KC) and Deborah Crooks (DC) combining their talents and enlisting the help of several musical compadres to create a diverse form of Americana and rock music. Drawing on their literary chops and post-punk and twang tendencies, they released Your Own Reacion a 10-song collection of Americana and rock, in 2014. Their follow-up recording, Go Out and Make Some (March 2016) is a true melting pot of Americana, blues, jazz and rock and roll songs about love, lust, sandy beaches, dusty roads, wandering holy men, wolf birds and prowling felines. They'll release a third record, Other Desert Cities, in April 2018.

Your Own Reaction reviewed by Rootstime:“That the two musicians can create excellent songs is proved in abundance by songs such as the ballads “Gone Missing” and “Oh Oh”, and also by the uptempo songs, charged with handsome guitar riffs, such as “Put Away the Year,” “Sweep Out the Dust,” “What To Say” and the album title track. …we’d love to hear more music from this duo.” — Rootstime
