What the Critics are saying about the bands second release: "Heading South"

"Tony Merando can sing. Man, can he sing. He exhibits flashes of Dwight Yoakam and Raul Malo, yet retains his own identity. And the rest of the Dutchess County-based Crossroads Band performs at his level, providing perfect mainstream country backup with flashy but not overdone solos from guitarist Ben Ribble. “Red Hot Woman” veers from the country tack by going full-tilt rockabilly and it succeeds on all fronts, lyrically as well as musically, by staying true to formula. Any one of these tunes would sound great on the radio."

"Heading South is competently played contemporary country music, fit as the fiddle played by guest musician Dave Mason. The Crossroads Band are undeniably skilled, but more importantly they sound as though they’re having a good time."

"I really enjoyed listening to your song, Crazy For Loving you. Thanks for the listen. Your verse melody is solid and your chorus is beautiful and catchy. Your lyrics have a clever twist and they are well crafted. A stellar effort in the production and outer sonic view looking in with top notch playing and singing here in the presentation of the song, an excellent band. '

"The Crossroads Band/Heading South
The degree of affection I have for the Crossroads Band is something that is difficult to rate. This is a group that is easy to love, writing and producing blues-tinted roots music that not only displays prime musicianship but stellar lyricism and friendly, heartfelt vocals. Man, this group can honestly smoke! quot;

"The Crossroads Band Heading South Often groups such as this make the mistake of cooking their goodies too raw or adding too much sauce to the mix. The Crossroads Band have found the center, showing us how they can stomp the floor with your ass but keeping the tunes as melodic and hook-filled as they can be. Singer Tony Merando has us completely moved, making our hearts tap and not just our feet."
