"Crosby Tyler sounds like one of the Lubbock music mafia, but unlike Butch Hancock and co, he's based in the far slicker environs of L.A. That doesn't stop Lectric Prayer being a down-home collection of back-porch bluegrass and blues-infused observations on the present day."
Rock N' Reel Magazine (R2)

Lectric Prayer is a masterful, sincere, honest album and will make my year end best list”
Johan Schoenmakers ALT CNTRY

"Noteworthy is Lectric Prayer the latest from L.A.’s Crosby Tyler. Misfits and ne'er-do-wells, these damaged songs ranging from the wistful Good Ol' Circus Days to the roaring Runaway Hellbound Train are his forte…"
Rob Hughes UNCUT

"A bohemian troubadour steeped in American traditions, the railroad, the carny, the hobo, the latest in a line that included Guthrie, Leadbelly, Ramblin Jack Elliott and Michael Hurley. Tyler is able to delve deep into tradition to produce some fabulous songs. The stringent folk blues of Oooh You’re Scarin’ Me and the rickety gospel of Train To Heaven are stompingly good. The introspective Bless That Day and Good Ol’ Circus Days reflect his ability to capture an audience with nothing but his guitar and talent. Lectric Prayer is a hypnotic groove with wheezy harmonica and a railroad rhythm and the tub thumpin’ Runaway Hellbound Train allows the band to swing merrily."

"The term Americana is Tyler-made for the likes of Crosby.
In support of his own guitar those incredibly talented members of progressive bluegrass ensemble, Nickel Creek, Sara Watkins (violin, backing vocals) and her brother, Sean Watkins (tenor, guitar, mandolin and backing vocals), Sebastian Steinberg (stand-up bass, ‘busted’ banjo) and top session man Don Heffington (drums). As he spins such inviting tales as Good 'Ol Circus Days, the feisty, slide-guitar aided blues fashioned Pitchfork Brigade and with a pounding rhythm, fiddle and banjo support the ‘in the groove’ Runaway Hellbound Train has him cut a swath rich in muscle plus, he is also given as strong harmony vocal assists as one could wish for.
Back On The Cross featuring a bluesy harmonica intro is one of those deep and a little dark songs that have become the trademark of Ramsay Midwood and Ray Wylie Hubbard, and you won’t find me saying much wrong about either musician. On hearing Steinberg’s modal banjo styled work on Train To Heaven—where there is a likeness to something Terry Allen once did his banjo really does sound busted! But it detracts none from the short, sharp vignette of old-time blues gospel fare.
With so much music having been absorbed by Tyler there are others acts who come to mind, too—like with Bless That Day as folk singer-songwriters like Tim Hardin of the late 1960s cum early 1970s. As for his own life outside music he could just as easily be the man mentioned in his song Fugitive In The Law and who if he was born in another age (and another race) worked on the infamous Mississippi Parchman Farm."

"Lectric Prayer he sounds far more at ease, contented even. With the title track Tyler gives us a bluesy take on Americana that is a slightly dark yet uplifting affair with primitive harmonica jostling with some fine vocal harmonies for a mighty fine song. Fugitive From The Law follows in a similar vein and is driven along brilliantly by Don Heffington's flawless drumming. Good Ol' Circus Days is a cleverly constructed tale of a circus clown's life with lyrics that are littered with sharp observational and topical comment making it both funny and sad in equal measure while Back On The Cross moves the tempo up with its driving bass line and harmonica hooks but it is Sara Watkins restrained fiddle playing that is the star of the show on this rockin' track. Pitchfork Brigade, a smoldering slide blues anthem in the mold of Seasick Steve and the beautiful Bless That Day. If you like your music to come with integrity and heart then let Crosby Tyler into your soul. The man sounds like he has found his."
