Bay Station is California-based songwriter/musicians Kwame Copeland and Deborah Crooks combining their talents and enlisting the help of several musical friends to create a diverse form of Americana and rock music. In 2014 under their former name KCDC they released Your Own Reaction; a 10-song collection of Americana and rock drawing on their literary chops and post-punk and twang tendencies. 2016’s Go Out and Make Someis a true melting pot of Americana, blues, jazz and rock and roll, with songs about love, lust, sandy beaches, dusty roads, wandering holy men, wolf birds and more. In the spring of 2018 they released a 10-song follow-up, Other Desert Cities, inspired by the strange, poetic and distinctly American stories of desert denizens. The same year they launched their Love the Bay Music & Sailing Series on and around the San Francisco Bay, playing on deck with a variety of musical guests at their ports of call. The next year, they expanded Love the Bay concept into a monthly series of videos featuring performance and interviews with songwriters aboard Espresso. Amid the Covid pandemic, they’ve performed countless porch concerts for their local community, and in 2021 release the 6-song EP Beyond the Safe and Sound. Their next EP, Shapeshifter, will be released September 22, 2023.
