Kick off the 2018 Gage County Fair with Two Way Crossing!
“They keep their country roots and infuse the music with dashes of rock and roll and pop; not the other way around…You may not come as a country music fan, but, after hearing Two Way Crossing, you’re sure to leave as one.”
— Heather Jacks, author The Noise Beneath The Apple
Two Way Crossing, the brainchild of Jenny Marvin and Blake Marvin, was originally formed in 2014 when they moved from Denver, CO to Nashville to surround themselves with some of the best writers, performers, and producers in the music business. Along the way they met Kevin Smith (guitar), and Jaron Mossman (drums). Jenny and Blake were quick to realize the bond that was forming and the duo became a four-piece core of the band with a cohesive sense of style, passion and drive.
The band’s shows are high energy and allow audiences an easy escape from the day-to-day monotony, a theme that is contagious to anyone observing. The listener is able to feel those emotions with the help of the talented songwriting that is at the forefront of the band. Jenny spends a lot of time songwriting for the group, pouring her heart and soul into their catchy and heartfelt lyrics. She has collaborated with other talented songwriters including: Ryan Sorestad, Adam McDonough, Craig Wilson, Erik Halbig, Parker McKay, Brian White, Steve Pasch, and Two Way Crossing’s own Kevin Smith.
“Déjà Vu,” the title track from Two Way Crossing’s sophmore EP is a track that, in particular, has caught the eye of critics. Chuck Shultz (Country Weekly) says, “From the opening chords to the sweet sultry vocals, ‘Deja Vu’ may be the sexiest song you’ll listen to this year.” The six songs on Déjà Vu will hook you instantly with “Look A Like” and will hold you until the last chord of “Still Young.” Music blogger Lisa Zimmer agrees saying, “Instantly, the electric sound grips the listener with a current country charm collided with an alternative rock vibe. A timeless combination that you can’t help but rock to; the kind that causes you to nod and shake your head from musicality, lyrics, and the way it makes you feel, re-live, and imagine.”
Two Way Crossing’s vocals vary between two and three-part harmonies which add to the freedom and uniqueness of their sound. They are pushing country music boundaries without leaving behind everything they love about the genre.
With their music and mesmerizing performances, Two Way Crossing has developed a rabidly devoted fanbase spread across the country. Those fans have already embraced the band’s brand new single, “Gettin Sun!” and enthusiastically echo the words of Bob Oermann in saying, “Welcome to the party.”
