With an authentic, brash, and tremble THE DELTA BOMBERS hail from Las Vegas mixing classic

Doug C and the Blacklisted are for folks who like Hank Williams Senior but also have an understanding of Elvis, Black Flag and the Cramps.

NEW ALBUM ONE MAN BAND REBELLION PACIFIC NW TOUR - March 1, 2014

February 20th  2014 kicks off the new album release by CROSBY TYLER titled THE ONE MAN BAND REBELLION
on Bohemia Music.  This is Crosby’s fourth album and he dramatically departs into a minimalistic, primitive,
individualistic DIY assault on the senses....

“Well, I’ve been trying for a long time to do a solo album that I could feel good about.  But I went one step further
and became a One Man Band….”

It didn’t happen overnight.  It took three years of gigging to get the chops needed as well as two attempts at recording.
It seemed that nobody knew how to record direct, one-take style, as a one man band.   The bass drum posed a problem for most
modern day engineers. 
“I thought it was going to be a piece of cake but everyone is so conditioned in overdubbing, looping, and effect-driven styles,
that something so simple & raw could be so puzzling to reproduce sonically.  Fortunately, good friend Jamie Bridges came to the
rescue.   Jamie is a top notch live sound engineer as well as recording and many years of major label productions and voila
the process began...Everything live, no over dubbing.  Just pick the best take.  The result, a 14 song allegory high-lighting the
underbelly of society.  Crosby has always had a knack for utilizing his musical influences and making it own.  It gels with
melodies of the past yet brewed in a storytelling style of today. 

Just poke your ears to ONE HIT BEFORE I GO and you get a Woody Guthrie/Carter Family tone yet shadowed in today’s colloquialism.  That track features the background vocals of CALICO.
And that’s just for starters. US BLACK SHEEP AIN’T LIKE THE OTHERS pulls no stops as the drifter-observer rumbles through
Northern California painting characters in reality drama and uniting them in a defiant communal anthem-like ballad.
And then it’s country-like BIKERS, HIPPIES AND HONY-TONKIN’ COWBOYS which portrays a bar band and the misfit
hooligans that follow them and reek havoc every time they play.  RED CROSS BLUES, a piedmont-fingerstyle descant
shoulders the confessional fate of a wounded soldier bludgeoned and disfigured that he no longer believes he will be able
to face his baby boy Henry.  It seems as if every song on this album transforms into a short movie.

Isn’t there more here than just music?  But an unidentifiable exploration towards a self-imposed revolution of self-reliance?
Doing all ya can with what ya got and not worrying what others may think and just finding peace with the effort and not being
intimidated…Good ol’ punk ethics permeates throughout it. 
“Ya know it’s so easy to pick on yourself for what you don’t have rather than what ya got”
THE ONE MAN BAND REBELLION TOUR starts Thursday Feb 20th in Cottage Grove OR and goes
throughout Oregon and Washington….

KINGS_ROPE_HOLDING_RESONATOR_resized.jpg


*Blend back-porch blue grass with delta blues add a keen sense of social commentary and wrap it into a one man band you get
CROSBY TYLER. 
 His two critically acclaimed albums
"10 SONGS OF AMERICA TODAY"
and his current "LECTRIC PRAYER"  
..have sent critics  'hallelujing' that a fresh voice  has emerged with lyrics and melodies ringing through the hearts and minds of his fans.

 * Social misfits, addicts, railroad kids, circus clowns, outlaws, truckers, down and outs, are set in present day
narratives and self-explorations.
 

* Crosby has crafted well over 500 songs with influences from the likes of Dock Boggs, Woody Guthrie, Roscoe
Holcombe, Willie Dixon, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Skip James, Johnny Cash, RL Burnside, Charles Bukowski, Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, and T-Model Ford.
