THE PHOENIX STORY

20210710_152430_2.jpg

Based in Salem, Oregon - the folk pop duo Phoenix consists of award winning songwriters Tim and Kathy Crosby - who have been performing together for well over 20 years.  Together they have collaborated on seven CD's - all of which remain in radio rotation, and are known far and wide for their songwriting abilities and high energy entertainment style.  In the words of Randy Shelton of Nevada's "Silver Star String Buster" magazine,  "Kathy looks to be 100 lbs soaking wet but that little gal can knock a song right out of the park."  

Tim and Kathy have performed together from Las Vegas to Nashville, in large venues and small.  Now being compared to the likes of Willie Nelson, Gillian Welch, and David Rawlings - Phoenix rises in the joy of a fresh new sound that highlights the multi-instrumental talents of both musicians, and also focuses on a variety of vocal styles and abilities.  Now booking both live and virtual performances, be sure to also check out their website showcasing an expanded variety of their combined talents at https://www.phoenixhousepublishing.org
