Raucous, rowdy, gentle, sweet, eccentric, quirky, and outright irreverent — these qualities fittingly describe Tas Cru’s songs and testify to his reputation as a one of today’s most original bluesmen. A powerful and passionate blues singer-songwriter, Cru has received wide praise for his performance and songwriting.
“His songs are blues poetry – crafted with rare verbal flair and his ability to cast a memorable hook is magical!”
“The vivacity and sheer joy with which Cru plays is intoxicating!”
— Living Blues
His brand new album, SIMMERED AND STEWED. comes out November 11, 2016 through the VizzTone label group — eleven songs flavored in most part by resonator, cigar box and acoustic guitar. The album features harmonica, honkytonk piano, Hammond B3 organ and rich backing vocals. The new album is a worthy follow up to his 2015 album YOU KEEP THE MONEY – the hottest debuting blues album of the year, residing most of the year at or near the very top of every major blues chart. It debuted at #1 on the Roots Music Report, with eight of its twelve songs in the top 25, and the album debuted on the prestigious Living Blues Chart at #2.
Based out of upstate New York. Cru performs in a variety of formats ranging from solo acoustic to a seven-piece backing band.
