Magazines as far-ranging as the New York Times and No Depression have run features on him, and Paste Magazine included him and his ensemble as being among Wyoming’s top bands. He has made numerous television and radio appearances and is portrayed in the short film “Wyomericana”, which won the Laramie Film Festival in 2014. He’s been invited as the opening act on two national tours with Texas songwriting legend Robert Earl Keen. Jalan has released 7 albums of primarily his own songs, and performs throughout the U.S. and occasionally Europe, when he takes the notion.
“To pin any one label on Crossland’s body of work would be a crime. It’s not country. It’s not rock. It sure as hell ain’t your daddy’s bluegrass! His characters and stories come alive to form an often dark, yet highly humorous interpretation of the American Experience,” writes Marcus Huff of the Laramie Zine. Kanky songs about drinkin', fightin', hobos, roughnecks, trailer park fires, oil-patch strippers, and little neighborhood dogs that bite, are lent their truth-is-stranger-than-fiction wobble by virtue of the fact that Jalan was raised and resides in a rural mountain town, population <300.
The Two Tracks
The band features Julie Szewc on vocals and acoustic guitar, David Huebner electric guitar and cello, Fred Serna on drums, and Aaron Ashear on bass. With rock, country, bluegrass, and folk influences, The Two Tracks craft a timeless sound that embodies the sentiment and sensitivity of the American heartland and the rugged journeyman’s spirit of the mountain west.
The band self-released its second album, “Postcard Town,” in May 2017. Recorded at the Butcher Shoppe Studio in Nashville and produced by Will Kimbrough, “Postcard Town” will appeal to both country and rock music fans, with Szewc and Huebner’s just-right vocal harmonies combining to form what Americana journal No Depression described as “a musical banana split of consequence.”
