Mike Crampton came to his love of music honestly, and later in life than most, through family jams and a desire to have a house full of music for his children to grow up in. For Amy Cronk, born into the casserole eating, square dancing, Scadi-German mid-west of the US, Blue Cicada's roots/folk/indie-rock-country approach felt instinctive and relaxed. Their vocals can be anything from powerful and passionate to subtle and nuanced, but always affecting and genuine. Together, they have found a groove which unites the best of their individual styles.
