THE CROSSROADS bring all the power needed to drive any Blues Lover into 'nirvana.' Strong gravel-mouthed vocals, screamin' lead and slide guitar, all backed by stompin' beats and poundin' bass: that's THE CROSSROADS true Blues recipe. From the Chicago Shuffle of 'The Boss,' to the Bo Diddly-esque 'Where You Gonna Be,' the Blues drip off these guys like hot sauce at a BBQ. The guys are from the home of Rock 'n' Roll, Cleveland, Ohio, where they often called the famed 'Agora Ballroom' home. Steve is the lead guitarist, author, and composer of most of the Band's material. Steve's brother, Bryan, is the bassist and driver of the rhythm section. The brothers have been playin' Blues and Classic Rock together 'forever,' along with Johnny P, a life-long friend and the heart of the Band's strong beats. JP (John Piascik), a Vic Firth stick endorser (see web site), is a most accomplished drummer, who spent more than a decade in Nashville gigging, touring, and recording with major Country stars such as David Frizzell and Dana Williams (of Diamond Rio). Randall is the very 'heart' of the Band, his strong and raspy vocals, masterful stage presence, and over-all personality projecting power and experience. He truly knows how to put Blues Flavor into the lyrics. Randall is also quite a songwriter in his own right, as one can tell from his title track: 'Lost Nation.' Think Blues/Rock Greats Billy Gibbons (ZZTop), Eric Clapton, Elmore James, SRV, Bo Diddly, and Bob Seger: if you don't hear them in this Band, you're deaf! The Crossroads' second album, Sink Or Swim, is NOW HERE!! Tracking was done at the legendary SUMA Recording Studios in Painesville, Ohio (where most all of Grand Funk Railroad's Gold records were recorded), with additional work at The Hit Factory-Criteria Studios, Miami, and mastering at Abbey Road Studios, London, and it includes a special guest appearance by keyboardist Mark Leach, a/k/a 'Muggie Doo,' of the world reknowned Buddy Miles Express.
