Rockabilly & hard core real deal country music, dipped in the blues.

Honkytonk revisionists out of Oakland, Crying Time plays straight-up country and western music, from Bob Wills to Glen Campbell with whistle stops in between. Their original songs sit pretty in the mix – they’re tunes you might have heard on your daddy’s stereo when you were little. Jill Rogers is a singer’s singer with a 1974 voice and a story to tell, and Myles Boisen is a hero of juke joint licks on the six string and lap steel guitars. Tony Marcus’s fiddle weaves heartbreakingly throughout, and Tim Rowe (drums) and Smilin’ Pete Garellick (bass) hold down the rhythm section with swing and grace. KALX radio says “Country singin’ from Oakland standouts. Real musicians, not just stompers. Jill Rogers is an amazing singer. Just plain beautiful.”
