“An endemic Wyoming treasure.”
— Rita Basom, Wyoming Arts Council
Jalan Crossland is nationally acclaimed by audiences, critics, and his musical peers as being a premier acoustic guitarist, banjo player, singer-songwriter, and engaging showman. Along with dozens of regional contest awards, his extraordinary guitar work earned him National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship Runner Up honors in ’97 and the State Flatpick Championship title of his home state in 1999. His 2017 album, “Singalongs For The Apocalypse”, won Wyoming Public Radio’s People’s Choice – Album Of The Year award. In recognition for his contribution to the arts in Wyoming, he was bestowed the Governor’s Arts Award in 2013.“To pin any one label on Crossland’s body of work would be a crime. It’s not country. It’s not rock. It sure as hell ain’t your daddy’s bluegrass! His characters and stories come alive to form an often dark, yet highly humorous interpretation of the American Experience.- Marcus Huff, Laramie ZineJalan has opened for, or shared concert stages with, Robert Earl Keen, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Taj Majal, Shovels & Rope, Shakey Graves, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Steve Earl, Ray Wiley Hubbard, The Grand Teton Symphony, Earl Scruggs, John Hartford, Charlie Daniels, Corb Lund & The Hurtin’ Albertans, Ballet Wyoming (playing, not dancing), The Young Dubliners, Reckless Kelly, Mike Gordon (Phish), Sam Bush, Leon Redbone, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, John McEwen (Dirt Band), Marty Stewart, Peter Rowan, Michael Martin Murphy, Norman Blake, and more.“If you’re lucky enough to hear Jalan play, observe the audience.
It will be made almost entirely of drop-jawed, glassy-eyed, altogether astonished listeners.”- PANACHE MAGAZINE, Rapid City, SDSongs about drinkin, fightin, hobos, roughnecks, trailer park fires, oil-patch strippers, and little neighborhood dogs that bite, are lent their truth-is-stranger-than-fiction wobble by virtue of the fact that Jalan was raised and resides in a rural Wyoming mountain town, population 200, give or take.“He casts a sardonic but affectionate eye on the roughhewn lives of Western people. Crossland’s ‘Big Horn Mountain Blues’ is so popular in Wyoming that it is practically the official state song.”Michael Segell, New York Times
