The Crux has a new song out... and it appears on “After The Fire: Vol 1,” a compilation of regional artists that is being sold to raise funds for repairing damage from the North Bay fires. The whole project is produced by our friend, Scott Mickelson. Read about it here: AFTER THE FIRE STORY
The Crux’s track is called SAME BED. It is about how we splinter but stay together. How sometimes you just want to crawl into warm pocket. About laying right beside someone while you each drift into completely different worlds.
SCOTT MICKELSON put over 100 hours into producing this album with regional artists, and he contributed a track to it himself. The other artists who pitched in with a song are David Luning, The Sam Chase, Bobby Jo Valentine, Kelly McFarling, Travis Hayes, M. Lockwood Porter, T Sisters, Avi Vinocur, The Family Crest, Felsen, John Elliott, Jeremy Lyon, and Lauren O’Connell.
The Crux will be performing at a release party for this baby on Thursday, March 28th at Hopmonk! More info HERE. There will also be a San Francisco release Party (into HERE). Money from the shows go toward fire relief.
The Crux recently filmed a 45 minute interview and 5 live videos with the infamous North Bay music video/podcast series ONSTAGE WITH JIM AND TOM. We talk about creativity, making art accessible, and much more!

Revered / doctor / pied piper Josh Windmiller of The Crux recently played some shows in New Orleans. While he was there, he played a tune for the Cozy Corner video series. Check out this take of Phaedrus, a song about love and madness off of The Crux’s Be Merry album...
We at THE CRUX Ministry of Witnessing, Men, and Monkeys are proud to humbly present to you the following video, recorded at Gremlintone with assistance from our brave city of Santa Rosa.
Can I get an ear? Can I get a friend? Can I get a witness?
