David Crosby Releases First Solo Album In Two Decades

Considered one of the greatest harmony singers in rock history, David Crosby is back in the limelight as a solo artist this winter with the release of his first studio album in two decades, Croz, out now from Blue Castle Records, the label he founded with longtime collaborator Graham Nash.

Even though his 1971 solo record If I Could Only Remember My Name gains more respect by the year, Crosby has spent most of his two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career singing and performing with others, including The Byrds, Crosby Stills and Nash and CPR.

Croz is an 11-song portrait of a man who has seen hard times — addiction, prison, band wars and health problems — but come out the other end introspective and open, ready to sing about familiar themes in the Crosby canon like love, political outrage, passing time and the sea.

A member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Crosby’s work includes “Wooden Ships,” “Almost Cut My Hair,” “Long Time Gone,” ‘Déjà Vu,” “Guinevere,” and countless others.

Originally aired January 2015.
