Brand new song premiere at American Blues Scene:
"Ryan Lee Crosby traveled from his native Boston to Memphis, TN to record his upcoming album, the dirty, electric Winter Hill Blues. With a street date of June 14th, 2022 via Crossnote Records, Winter Hill Blues was produced by Fat Possum’s Bruce Watson, famed for producing albums for Junior Kimbrough and RL Burnside. The result is the best work of Crosby’s career." - JD Nash, American Blues Scene
"Down So Long" is the first single off my next album "Winter Hill Blues," which is coming in the spring/summer 2022. If you want an advanced download of the song, please pre-order the album and/or contribute to my newly created fundraising campaign.
Lyrically, 'Down So Long' is an acknowledgement of the truth of suffering. The melodies derive equal inspiration from the North Mississippi blues of Robert Belfour and the songs of Malian singer/guitarist Boubacar Traoré.
