In March 2015, Kevin Baker posted a Craigslist ad seeking a blues guitarist/singer. Ben Boisclair answered that ad and Cross Rhode Blues was born. Sharing a love of blues music, CRB plays a mixture of covers and originals.
After initially jamming acoustically, CRB began adding amps and foot percussion and finding its sound. Cross Rhode Blues has been touted for their ability to sound like more than just two people.
In the Spring of 2017 CRB released its self-titled debut album featuring 14 original blues songs in a variety of styles. Summer 2018 saw the release of their second album “Take Two”.
