Deep In The Waves is the work of J. BRIOZO, aka Jeff Crandall, of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Leader of the band Swallows, he released a selection of songs that cover a pretty phenomenal terrain, from heavy rock (‘Spinning Out’, very Beatles) to the light soul-funk of Steely Dan (‘Catalonia’), passing through folk with strings (‘Rain Song’) and a multi-colored répertoire in cinémascope (‘Sun Sun True’). In short, no taboos, a coppery and athletic voice, an undeniable know-how, holding: this Jeff knows where he’s going and does not ask his way from anyone.”
