Americana is that genre so-called country music-hatin’ folks can feel safe listening to — it’s still folk-rock enough to trick people into believing they’re not listening to country. Singer-songwriter Jeff Crosby bridges that gap easily enough, never going full country (no twangy vocals here) or rock in his recent release Waking Days. Together with his band the Refugees, Crosby creates spaces and textures you’ll want to sit and sway inside of. Born in Donnelly, Idaho (population 152), he now moves between L.A., Nashville and Boise when not out touring the country, which he’s done for the past 10 years. Crosby brings his road show to Moscow on Friday night.
