Lullwater and Crowfield are no strangers to the long road. Crowfield, once signed to Universal Records, enjoyed a brief moment of stability under their umbrella, as well as the William Morris Endeavor Agency. Even though it was short-lived, it taught the band a great deal about their values, and reinforced their appreciation from Grass Roots growth. Riding a $20,000 Kickstarter infusion, Crowfield has been able to build their brand directly from the enthusiasm of their fan base, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Come see Crowfield and Lullwater play the Melting Point on Wednesday, October 17th, for a night that is sure to be extraordinary.
Crowfield's journey to the national stage has been accompanied by breakups and breakdowns, tempered by successes and letdowns, and defined by the act of giving a little more when there was nothing left to give. Since the band's creation in 2008, their music has evolved from a vintage Americana sound that reflected their Heartland roots to a more modern and slightly edgy style of Rock and Roll.
Indiana natives Tyler Mechem and Joe Giant formed the band that would come to be known as Crowfield when they relocated to Charleston, SC in 2005. In 2008, they caught the ear of acclaimed producer Rick Beato. Crowfield's premier album "Goodbye, Goodnight, So Long Midwestern" (Ten Star Records) soon followed. The addition of drummer Parker Gins and guitarist, Micah Nichols, and a frenetic touring schedule led to bigger crowds and more illustrious venues.
Throughout this evolution, however, the sincere and often heart wrenching lyrics of lead singer Tyler Mechem have continued to resonate with listeners. more >>> General Admission$5.00 in advance
