The composer behind CrusaderBeach
The story behind the name
“I grew up by the coast in Blackpool and would often while away hours at a stretch of shoreline known as Crusader Bank (Beach) – named after the Crusader, a ship which ran aground during heavy storms in 1839. The beach at Crusader Bank stretches down to the town of St Annes and the remains of its fire-damaged pier jetty, a photo of which features on the cover of my first album, Piano Songs.
For me, this serene location was a great place for creative inspiration. So when I was choosing a name for my music profile, CrusaderBeach immediately came to mind. When you listen to my piano music, I hope it also takes you to a place that’s personal to you. So, relax and enjoy your time at CrusaderBeach.”
