Music Review: Jeff Crosby’s ‘Waking Days’

Waking Days

Jeff Crosby isn’t pushing the boundaries of any genres on this album—he works well within the confines of traditional folk and rock—but that doesn’t mean you’ve heard it all before. This is unusually tuneful, well-hooked, and atmospheric music, and it comes supercharged with jingle-jangle guitar work, road-weathered vocals, and memorable, introspective lyrics. Tracks like “City Girls” and “Emily” will have you coming back for more of Waking Days; in fact, to borrow an old line from Lay’s potato chip commercials: bet you can’t play it just once.
