Album Notes
Larry Crane will forever be known as the driving force and co-creator of what is now referred to as the "heartland rock" sound. Long time guitarist for John Mellencamp, Crane helped his fellow Seymour, Indiana native to carve out a substantial piece of American rock history. From the early years (1975), to the chart topping '80s, he recorded, arranged, co-wrote, and toured with what Rolling Stone magazine called "the best rock band in the U.S. today..." During that time, Larry earned his elite sideman status by working with such artists as Steve Earle, Rosanne Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Lou Reed, John Prine, William Golden, John Fogerty, and legendary producer Bob Johnston, among others.

These days, Larry's goals are quite different. His critically acclaimed, self-titled album was a huge hit on radio's AAA format, while his regional hit "Independence Day" started wooing fans all across the country. Spending more time in Nashville, he soon gained a reputation as being an up-and-coming songwriter. Larry soon started co-writing with some of his old friends, who were by now thinking of him as more than just a sideman.

With his third solo effort, "Wire and Wood", Larry has combined his band-oriented rock sound with poignant and sometimes humorous story telling. From the tale of two drifters finding love in "O Sole Mio" to the title track's anthem-like ode to the guitar, this rich collection of songs will keep you engaged and become one of your favorites from the first listening and for years to come.
