Born and raised in the rural eastern plains of Colorado, Chauncy Crandall developed his love for music through attending the local church and participating in family sing-alongs. His songwriting is influenced by old church hymns and his parents record collection which included artists such as Marty Robbins, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Hank Williams. Crandall’s style is a synthesis of Americana, gospel, and Roots-Rock infused with modern sentiments.
Crandall cultivated a loyal following with the release of his first record, “Every Song is About You,” in 2012. The positive reception of this first album led him to assemble a small band with which he entered the studio in 2014 to record his follow-up. Released in 2014, “Breakdown” was also met with critical acclaim, winning the Colorado Springs Indy Music Award for Album of the Year and earning him invitations to a number of regional music festivals. Crandall currently resides in Florida, where he plays regularly, continuing to expand his base of loyal listeners with a sound that Bill Forman of the Colorado Springs Independent describes as “disarmingly poetic.”
