Last Month’s Spotlight Music
“Ladders and Edges” – Sugarcane Jane

J100

After a long, extensive process following their successful 2015 album “Dirt Road’s End”, Sugarcane Jane delves into a more contemporary sound than some of their previous work yet stays true to every element of music that is very much their trademark Sugarcane Jane identity. They (Anthony and Savana Lee Crawford) enrich our lives with something very personal and intimate with the latest release. “Ladders and Edges” which features guest appearance by Colin Linden continues a mission of excellence that we have come to value and appreciate from the popular duo. In 2016, Anthony Crawford’s solo release “National Treasure” ranked among The Southland Music Line’s top albums. His latest with wife Savana is sure to merit that same recognition.

Sugarcane Jane has been featured in numerous articles and photo collections at The Southland Music Line. They were voted Music Artist of the Year in 2015 by the readers of The Southland Music Line and their album “Dirt Road’s End” was voted 2015’s Album of the Year by the readers too.

Some of the songs from the new album that stand out early for me are “Words”, “The Whistle Song” (you’ll catch yourself whistling along), the beautiful and moving “Never Do We Know”, “The Edge”, “New Love” and the amazing “13th Believer”.

We highly recommend “Ladders and Edges”.

july fan of the monthThis month we would like to recognize Sandy Dillon Loper as Music Fan of the Month. Sandy has long been an enthusiastic fan of live music. In 2016, she attended the Desert Trip Festival in Indio, CA to see such legendary music icons as The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Who, Bob Dylan, Roger Waters and Paul McCartney (a show The Line’s Johnny Cole also attended). Sandy’s support for local music is clearly evident as well and she can regularly be seen enjoying Gulf Coast artists at Jack’s by the Tracks. Thanks, Sandy, for supporting live music. The Southland Music Line looks forward to seeing you at many more great shows and venues!
