Butterfly Wings Start the Hurricane
The Crossing is amazing audiences in the Pacific Northwest! Their music is stylish and exhilarating, with a sense of rock's history and an eye to experimental tones. Their Debut Album: Butterfly Wings Start the Hurricane, demonstrates the bands creative range. In 'Amnesia', the full power and masterful musicianship pushes musical limits. With 'Vanilla', the band recalls the innocence of 50's style rock. 'Sirens' is in your face hard rock with a searing guitar solo. 'Tempest and Grace' is a touching love song with acoustic guitar and piano. Young, energetic band from Olympia Washington, home of Pearl Jam, and Sleater Kinney, The Crossing continues the legend of Northwest Rock. Songwriter Matt Brenna formed the band with Cary Griffin, bass and Tyson Rosage, Guitar. Lead vocalist Nate Hepner and drummer Jevon Wussler rounds out the group when they met and formed The Crossing after competing against each other at a high school battle-of-the-bands. Locally popular with a growing following, The Crossing produced a full length CD for release in April 2004. Energy is a word often used to describe the complex, layered sound of The Crossing. Built with classic rock influences and an ear for experimental tones, The Crossing has played local venues, and has become Olympia's headliner for all ages shows.
