One of Seattle's finest rising talents!
Valley Maker is Austin Crane. Like his noted inspirations Jason Molina, Bill Fay, and Gillian Welch before him, he speaks to the strange and transitory ways we mark time through our lives. Years pass and fold in his cosmic American songs.
Prophetic and apocalyptic language shapes Crane's lyrics, but his outlook is not bound by dogma. Instead, he uses the metaphors of faith to explore the ineffable and to navigate the intersection of belief, time, place, and the political present.
He is due to release his second full length album 'Rhododendron' in early October. It's a record about transition, about leaving, but also arriving, a document of the journeys in-between.We are delighted to host Valley Maker as he showcases his new soulful songs.
