The Crane Wives
The Crane Wives come from Grand Rapids, and what they do defies musical stereotypes. Formed in late August of 2010 at a Chinese restaurant, they recently released their second album, "The Fool in Her Wedding Gown." Using three-part vocal harmonies, eclectic instrumentation and a knack for unusual shifts in dynamics, they create organic music that is both accessible and innovative. Each live Crane Wives show features contagious energy as well as original music that ranges from whisper-quiet ballads to danceable grooves. Paste recently named The Crane Wives one of five Michigan bands to watch, and they're getting bigger every year!
