Digging for lyrical gold like a social archeologist
Joe Crookston is a songwriter, guitarist, painter, fiddler, slide player, eco-village member and believer in all things possible. He'll surprise you and awaken the cynics. He's digging for lyrical gold like a social archeologist. His songs are universal, his rhythm infectious.

Whether he's picking his 1948 Gibson, weaving through lap slide songs or looping his fiddle, he will draw you in. It happens every time. With unwavering courage to be himself, he is literate, poignant and funny. As Joe himself puts it, "I'm learning to trust my voice as a songwriter. Be who I am. Trust the stories and follow no trends. More and more I find that when I tell my true story, it has wider breadth, deeper impact, and resonates more clearly."

"At every festival I hope to find the gift of one artist whose songwriting and performance stand out. Joe Crookston was that gift for me this year at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Stunning performance, great songs, and not a word wasted! I LOVE that!" - David Francey, Songwriter Ontario

Song Samples: Fall Down as the Rain
Rj confesses to being a late bloomer; while she's been writing songs for three decades, she only made the life-altering decision to focus on music full-time within the past few years. She's quickly made up for lost time, garnering songwriting awards at some of the most prestigious festivals in the U.S., including wins at the Mountain Stage NewSong, Kerrville New Folk, Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist, Wildflower! Arts and Music and Sisters Folk Festival/Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest.

"Rj plays a clean guitar, flat picking or strumming and stringing chords together to build melodies built like a proverbial brick house and pours over it all with a voice like butter. Her lyrics are sincere and plainspoken, as one might expect from someone who grew up in small town Ohio." - Vancouver Island Music Festival
