Justin Crosby's professional career began in 1993 when he joined Caroline Records recording artists, Drop Nineteens (1993-1995) as their lead guitarist. Drop Nineteens were one of a few US-based bands who styled themselves on England's distinctive shoegazer sound, taking their inspiration from the genre's most celebrated icons, My Bloody Valentine. The band would ultimately lead the UK Indie Album and Singles charts with formal releases after signing a record deal. Signing to Caroline Records (label home to Smashing Pumpkins, Hole and others), Drop Nineteens immediately garnered college radio airplay with their 1992 debut album, Delaware. The group embarked on several European and domestic tours. In his career with Drop Nineteens, Crosby performed in Switzerland, England, Scotland and across the US and Canada. The "Nineteens" led a 2 week tour of the US as Blur's supporting band, shared the stage with Radiohead, Flaming Lips and Mazzy Star at England's Reading Festival and headlined Lollapalooza's second stage in 1993.
Since his career with Drop Nineteens, Crosby has composed CSI Miami's forthcoming Season 7 UK commercial/teaser & created loops for (Showtime Network's) Dexter's Season 4. He's produced commercial and independent scores that have been broadcast from Australia & Sweden to Japan, Mexico & the UK. Crosby has also licensed remixes of popular songs, as well as producing loop libraries for digital composers & still continues to work with Dexter's composer Licht creating loops, beds and editing for a number of forthcoming major projects including video game soundtracks and other popular film/television projects. He is a graduate of Massachusetts College Of Art & Design's Studio For Inter-related Media programwhere he graduated with academic distinction..
Thank you, Justin, for the link. Sorry I did not acknowledge it earlier. I don't get e-mail notifications, for some reason, from this site, and had not been on the site for several months. You are kind to give it to me. I shall check it out. I'm afraid that marketing is what I DON'T do. I love to compose, force myself to record, and loath trying to sell myself or get exposure. Perhaps that is where I need to hire some help. Anyway, again, thanks. Bye, Martha Maria
thanks a lot. I will arrive in Boston on saturday 20th. My dream would be to visit the Berckley School of music...do you think it is possible? I will be free on Sunday 21st all the day. If you want we can meet! And share experiences and knowledge.
Thanks for the recommendations! I will surely consider some of that software the next time I'll buy equipment. Listened some more to your music, and I love the different styles and moods you create! Please check out when I upload some more music in the near future.
