Cjell Cruze

Cjell Cruze


Minnesota Northwoods inspired folk rock. Before we even played our first show, Minnesota's public radio station, The Current, made our tune their song of the day and put us in their regular rotation. Since then we have just been trying to keep this show rollin!


"Need another noteworthy band that you will slowly become obsessed with? Good, because today we bring you Cjell Cruze, a quartet that is steadily rising in the Twin Cities music scene with their debut album The Ropes out now." -Laine, Oratory of Sound music blog

"I’ve been waiting for this record to see the light of day after seeing Cjell Cruze’s name on random live bills the past couple of months. It’s a tremendous debut and one that has seemingly appeared out of nowhere. “Train Song” is tinged in lo-fi Americana and there’s harmonies that sound straight out of the rainy Pacific Northwest." - Jon Schober, 89.3 The Current

"...the end result of all of this impromptu creativity, Cjell Cruze’s debut full-length The Ropes, is a charming, creepingly infectious ode to lo-fi Americana..." - Andrea Swensson, 89.3 The Current
