“It is certainly hard to say goodbye to this journey,” says frontman Tyler Mechem. “ But my, oh my, the places we have seen. We've been broken down on roadsides in at least 15 states. We took a giant tour bus to Manhattan with a driver named Bones to play for a bunch of industry suits - then threw a party on the bus. We've 'put our bigfoot down' on international waters. We've raged on the Sunset Strip ‘til 4 in the morning in seedy, notorious, and infamous clubs. We've climbed atop the hills along California's highway 1 and stared out into the Pacific ocean. We had a pow wow on a veranda in San Diego and decided to tell a naysayer to 'shove it' - and rocked the damn room until she thanked us for turning it up. We drove a dirty old van through the Rockies, through Yellowstone, past Old Faithful, across the Golden Gate Bridge and right up to the loading dock of the shrine of rock and roll - The Fillmore in San Francisco. We blistered the room with 40 minutes of the best we could do. We kept Austin weird, very weird. We broke down in Wildorado, TX and did not take off our skinny jeans just to fit in with the local cowboys. Charleston and beyond we are eternally grateful beyond words. We have three remaining shows. They will be celebrations, not funerals! So mark your calendars. Let's go out big, friends.”
Crowfield blends Infectious, charismatic rock with elements of Americana, alt-country, and pop and has been captivating audiences across the U.S. with an engaging stage presence and insightful and poignant lyrics. Frontman Tyler Mechem formed the band that would come to be known as Crowfield when he relocated to Charleston, SC in 2005 from Indiana. In 2008, they caught the ear of acclaimed producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Needtobreathe, Crossfade, Trey Anastasio, Stuck Mojo, Charlie Mars). Crowfield's debut album "Goodbye, Goodnight, So Long Midwestern" (Ten Star Records) soon followed and won the band a legion of fans with it’s stripped down focus on rock and alt-country. Their third album The Diamond Sessions was released in June of 2012 to critical acclaim and featured a return closer to the sound that originally defined Crowfield.

“This much is clear: Tyler Mechem knows how to write a hit song. Throughout The Diamond Sessions, the Crowfield singer touches upon universal themes of love and emotion with a clean, powerful vocal performance. The album is stunningly good for what it is. Both "Change of Heart" and opening track "Catching Up" are radio-ready. These tunes easily stand alongside any polished contemporary rock hit charting nationally, and that's clearly what Mechem and his bandmates were going for.” – Stratton Lawrence of the Charleston City Paper
