[..]on l’appelle Sipo Matador — qui, avide de soleil, enserre de ses multiples lianes le tronc d’un chêne, tant qu’enfin elle s’élève bien au-dessus de lui, mais appuyé sur ses branches, développant sa couronne dans l’air libre pour étaler son bonheur aux yeux de tous.

About Jay Crawford:
Born in 1962 in San Francisco.
I lived in a far-out musical/hippie commune with “The sons of Champlin” until 1969, whereupon my mother met, and swiftly fell in love with, E.C.M. Recording Free-Jazz artist, Contra Bassist “Barre Phillips”.
We moved to France where we toured and lived all over Europe. In 1976 I moved back to the U.S. just in time to rebel and dive into Punk Rock. Since then, I’ve been playing, touring, and recording with many bands, the most renown of which was Warner Bros. recording artists . made 7 records and toured both the U.S. and Europe enjoying success and appreciation from an astoundingly wide ranging fan base for 13 years.
My current S.F. Bands are “The night Falls“, “Roadside Memorial”, “Housecoat Project”, “Le Group“, “Battery Powered Grandpa” and “The Janet Stuart Blues Band“. So ….in short, my musical tastes are very diverse and yes… I have been experienced!
