Sugarcane Jane (from the album Southern State of Mind available on ArenA Recordings)
Divisions are made based on personal decisions and invisible walls are built based on the way we view the world politically. In an us against them game, we need to remind ourselves that our environment is not the people around us, it is the beauty of the land on which we walk. Sugarcane Jane start the conversation as they embrace the joys of living in their Alabama home with a new album, Southern State of Mind. Ragged guitar chords move the clouds aside when “Rainbow” spreads a message of hope as Sugarcane Jane pick up the rhythm to plow through the working day to gather around with friends and music in the evening hours around “Campfire”.
Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee (Sugarcane Jane) provide all the vocals for Southern State of Mindwith co-producer Buzz Cason lending harmony. Recorded at Admiral Bean Studio in Loxley, Alabama, Southern State of Mindwith Wanda Vick adding banjo and fiddle to the instrumental backing for the recording, all supplied by Anthony Crawford. A dark melody and a steady pace to the beat and story gives “Man of Fewest Words” an air of prophecy while a persistent thump builds four walls of rhythm around “Cabin on the Hill”. Southern State of Mindkeeps homefires burning for a man away from the land he loves in the title track as Sugarcane Jane follow “Destiny” on an infectious groove as they offer words for hearts with the advice of “The One Before Me” and the cautious steps of “Red Flags Warning” as they sprinkle optimism and wonder along a path leading into tomorrow with “We Can Dream”.
