It amazes me the talent that keeps surfacing in the Michigan area. I am not sure if it just is happening or if it’s always been there and I am just becoming aware of it, but The Crane Wives are another Michigan based band that you need to know about!

I was introduced to them via my friend Mae. She posted on Facebook about them and I have been waiting for their album release ever since. I am very picky about girl vocals and don’t listen to too many women singers, but the front ladies of The Crane Wives are extremely talented and their harmonies are something of heaven. 

The band hales from Grand Rapids, which is one awesome town along the west coast of Michigan. It is an up and coming area in the creative world. I would not be surprised if you begin to hear more of this town as the year continues to progress. 

The Crane Wives are somewhere between folk, country, and blues. Their writing is some of the best I have heard in some time and the more I listen to the album the more I fall in love with their sound, writing, and beats. So do yourself a favor and head over to iTunes and buy this album to add to your summer mixes. You can say you listened to them before they were even signed. 

Make sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on twitter.

Now check out this video to get the full experience of their band. This is a live version of their title track ” Safe Ship Harbored” at the River City Studio.


Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
