Formed in the Winter of 2011, Crimson Crux is a Christian/Folk/Rock group from the High Desert of Southern CA, consisting of husband/wife duo Nathan Petty (founder/songwriter/acoustic guitars) & Tanya Petty (vocals) accompanied by Paul Martinez (lead guitars) & Daniel Flores (percussion).
In May 2012, Crimson Crux entered into the studio with their longtime friend/engineer Eric Dorse from The Noize Lab to record their debut 17-track indie LP, “Through Divers Temptations”.
In May 2013, after months of laboring endlessly in the studio, Crimson Crux’s debut indie LP “Through Divers Temptations” was pressed, released via CD Baby & distributed to their various online partners currently carrying the LP. Immediately after the album’s release, the band embarked on two local tours that same year (“The Revival Tour 2013” & “Feed The Bears Tour 2013” ), followed by another studio session in February 2014 to re-record/re-release the single “Ye Serpent of Olde”, followed up once again by extensive local touring via local community outreaches & venues such as the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds & the local “2014 HALO Festival” at Mavericks Stadium.
In October of 2014, Crimson Crux entered the studio once again to record their sophomore EP “Of The Times & Seasons” which was released late March 2015, followed by a music video for their first single “Not of the Night” off the new EP. Today, Crimson Crux is heavily involved with participating/performing in various local outreaches around the High Desert of Southern CA & still continues to be the music ministry of Nate & Tanya Petty with more music & lyrics that are yet to be written.
