Davell Crawford is known as the "Piano Prince of New Orleans", which makes perfect sense in that he's a virtuoso player well-versed in all the components of the NOLA musical stew: jazz, blues, soul, funk, gospel, country, and Americana.

These talents emerged very early in Crawford’s life as he was something of a child prodigy, becoming the accompanist to the St. Peter Claver Catholic Church choir at the tender age of 10, while at 11 he was working with multiple choruses at the St. Joseph Baptist Church. That gospel passion remains in every note he plays and sings. Crawford releases his latest album, My Gift to You, this June 11th via Basin Street Records and we are proud to premiere the funky tune “Southern Woman” today.
