Harold Crosby, Born Durwood H. Crosby in
Houlton, Maine, Harold grew up in The State of Maine graduated from high school in the
rural community of Albion, Maine.
After graduation, Harold worked at many jobs,
construction,tree surgeon and worked for a TV store putting up TV antenals. Music was
always in the back of his mind. At this time Uncle Sam called, Harold spent the next 21
years in the service of his country. Music was always very near and he played his brand of
country music all over the world.
Over the years Harold performed and was the opening act for
such greats as Dick Curless, Jimmie Martin, Back Owens, Tiny Lynn, Freddie Hart and many
other artist too numerous to mention. Harolds album credits include "Songs I
Love To Sing", and Harold Crosby and The Travelers Live In Japan, plus some 25
singles that have reached the record charts all over the world with great sales in many
countries, including France and England.
Harold has ran the gamut on a dozen small
labels and one big label and was looking for his own sound. He then formed his own label
"TRAVELER RECORDS", his fortune changed with chart records not only by himself
as an artist but other acts signed to his label were moving up the charts.
Harold is a member of many organizations both in music and in
the field of "Public Works" and he was made a Kentuckey Colonel in 1995, This
was an honor bestowed on him by some of his peers in Nashville music circles.
His new album "The Traditional Train" is a trip
into yesteryear and it brings out the many sides of Harold Crosby.
