About Bay Station
California -based songwriter/musicians Kwame Copeland and Deborah Crooks along with several musical friends formed Bay Station to create a diverse form of Americana music. Drawing on their literary and roots tendencies, their songs are imbued with aspects of Americana, blues, jazz, pop, rock and roll. They’ve released three full-length albums since forming in 2014, performing throughout California and beyond. In 2018, they founded their Love the Bay Music & Sailing Video Series which has been featured in BoatUS, Sailing Anarchy and TrafficBeat.
Their music has been included in several episodes of the PBS show RoadTrip Nation, as well as the video series Sailing La Vagabond. Their music also airs on radio stations including The Americana Music Show, KALX, WDBX and KAOS.
