Music by Kurt Crandall

You might say rhythm-and-blues vocalist Kurt Crandall, also heavy hitter on the blues harmonica, is a ramblin’ man. Music has taken him on a grand journey—Kansas City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Seattle, the Deep South. In D.C., he played with former Bo Diddley bass player Jesse James Brown. He spent three years with the Macon Blues All-Stars, which included alumni from Otis Redding's band, and then joined the rotation of Chicago blues clubs: The House of Blues, Shaw's Crabhouse, Andy's Jazz Club, Wise Fools Pub and Smoke Daddy, playing with blues heavyweights Dave Specter, Kenny Smith, Barrelhouse Chuck and Jimmy Sutton. He traveled nationally to promote his 2004 debut album—True Story—and entertained audiences in Holland and Sweden. He returned to Europe in 2009 with gigs in England, Spain and Mallorca to promote his sophomore release—Get Wrong With Me. His third and most ambitious album—Take It Off—followed in 2016. Kurt’s music is contemporary in theme but old school in sound and edge. Check him out here.
