Jalan Crossland releases new album “No Cause For Despair”
Jalan Crossland released his new album (his seventh), No Cause For Despair on June 20. The album features 11 new compositions and marks his return to the studio with his bandmates along with a few guest instrumental specialists.
Original drummer/percussionist Pat Madsen rejoins the trio (he first played on Trailer Park Fire & Other Tragedies), and long time sideman/bassist/collaborator Shaun Kelley contributed production and arrangement skills, as well as strings and vocals.
The album is the third project Jalan has recorded at Thunderground Sound Studios in Laramie WY (recording engineer Dan Tinker – mixing engineer James Stevens – mastering engineer Jim Wilson).
Crossland recently completed a solo tour through the Midwest where he made debut appearances at the 4th annual John Hartford Memorial Festival on May 29/30 (he’s already been invited back for next year’s festival) and wrapped up the tour at the UnVarnished Music Festival in SW Minnesota. The new album is now available on his website.
