The Crane Wives are a homegrown indie-folk-rock band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The evocative, poetic songs of lead-singers / multi-instrumentalists Kate Pillsbury and Emilee Petersmark are brought to life with the help of bassist Ben Zito and percussionist / vocalist Dan Rickabus. Utilizing three-part harmony, warm acoustic instruments, ethereal electric color, bounding rhythms and a deep love of literature, the eclectic four-piece creates a unique, dynamic sound that is equal parts haunting and uplifting. Their music traverses innovative territory, ranging from whisper-quiet ballads to big, danceable grooves. After receiving local critical acclaim for their first two self-produced albums, the band is returning to the studio in March to record an exciting new album due out later this year.
