THE AMEES


DAVID CROSBY AMEE Award in SOUND RECORDINGS A founding member of two seminal rock bands – the Byrds and Crosby SƟlls and Nash – David Crosby is a two-Ɵme inductee in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. When the singer/songwriter stepped onstage in front of some 500,000 music and lifecelebraƟng fans at Woodstock in 1969 as part of Crosby, SƟlls, Nash and Young – Crosby both shared and contributed to what many see as the generaƟon’s deĮning moment. In the three decades that followed, he’s conƟnued to be an arƟsƟc Įrebrand with over a dozen albums by Crosby, SƟlls and Nash, and CSNY, solo projects and duet albums with fellow band member Graham Nash. The son of Academy Award-winning cinematographer Floyd Crosby (“High Noon,” “Tabu,” among others), Crosby grew up in Santa Barbara, and then migrated south to Los Angeles during the folk music revival of the early 60’s. During this period he also traveled extensively throughout the United States as a solo singer/songwriter, honing his craŌ alongside such luminaries as Fred Neil, Cass Elliot, Bob Dylan and many others, performing dates at college hootenannies and smoke-Įlled coīeehouses. AŌer returning to LA, in 1963, he eventually joined forces with fellow musicians Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, Chris Hillman, and Michael Clarke as the Byrds – a ground-breaking band that virtually gave birth to the Folk/Rock genre, possibly the most important wave in pop music during the mid-60’s. In 1968, Crosby had begun wriƟng songs with Stephen SƟlls, who at the Ɵme partnered with Neil Young in Buīalo SpringĮeld. The pair knew they had struck musical gold when they invited singer-songwriter Graham Nash, from the BriƟsh band the Hollies, to add his voice to theirs on two songs, “Helplessly Hoping” and “You Don’t Have to Cry.” The trio released their debut album in 1969, Crosby, SƟlls and Nash. The group’s unprecedented sound, superb musicianship and collecƟon of enduring original songs sent the album straight to number one on the charts. That summer, Neil Young joined the congregaƟon, and the Woodstock performance cemented their idenƟty as an iconic presence in rock music, and thirty years of successful tours and albums have repeatedly reaĸrmed that fact. In 1970, Crosby also released his solo debut, “…If I Could Only Remember My Name,” a record that is sƟll considered one of the greatest albums of the 1970’s. Although overŇowing with sterling guest performances by Neil Young, Graham Nash as well as members of Jeīerson Airplane, Grateful Dead and Santana, the innovaƟve album clearly illustrated how much Crosby had grown as a truly original and imaginaƟve musician. Crosby sƟll tours and records solo, with Crosby/Nash, Crosby, SƟlls & Nash, and Crosby, SƟlls, Nash & Young. This Spring and Fall he will be touring with Graham Nash (Crosby/Nash); the pair have just launched a new record label, Blue Castle Records, and are releasing a recording of a show they performed at Dorothy Pavilion in 1971. The album, “Another Stoney Evening,” will be released on March 22.
