The history of Seattle's best kept secret...
Crossroads Exchange is a fresh new take on olde timey music. We draw influence from old blues, jazz, country, cabaret, klezmer, rock n roll, and the crooners of old, and throw 'em all in a blender with a pinch of tongue in cheek wit and a dash of carnival creepiness.
Formed in 2013, Crossroads Exchange has been tearing up the western United States with intense performances in dive bars, theatres, tattoo shops, and breweries from Seattle to Santa Fe, and everywhere in between. Their unique style is equally at home in a martini lounge as it is in a punk dive, which has earned them shows with everyone from Baby Gramps to the Goddamn Gallows.
In May of 2015, they self released their debut album, Black Train, and spent 16 days hitting 15 clubs on their whirlwind self booked Black Train Tour, hitting 10 states and ending in a performance at the Seattle Hempfest, and headlining spots on Wilderfest, and the Northend Throwdown in Snohomish, WA.
2016 found the fellas stomping around Washington, playing countless shows, including an unforgettable performance at the 2016 NW Folklife Festival. They are set to begin recording their next full length album at Bird's Nest Studios with engineer Arsen Lives this Summer.
