The Crane Wives are a home grown indie-folk outfit from Grand Rapids, Michigan that defies musical stereotypes. They utilize three-part vocal harmonies, eclectic instrumentation, and a passion for songcraft to create organic music that is both accessible and innovative. Each live show features contagious energy as well as original music that ranges from whisper quiet ballads to danceable grooves.
The band formed in late August of 2010, and finished the recording of their self-produced debut album "Safe Ship, Harbored" in April of 2011. The record was released on May 12th at Founder's Brewing Company in GR.
Their new full length album, also self-produced at Sound Post Studios, was released September 22nd, 2012 at the Intersection in GR.
The Crane Wives are happily endorsed by Deering Banjos and GHS Strings.
