Crimson Crux

Formed in the Winter of 2011, Crimson Crux is the husband & wife singer-songwriter duo of Nathan Petty (guitars) & Tanya Petty (vocals) originating from the High Desert of Southern CA

With roots in classic metal & influenced by the likes of '80's guitar legends such as Randy Rhoads, George Lynch, Michael Schenker, etc. from as early as the age of 10 yrs old.. Crimson Crux founder/guitarist Nathan Petty (ex-Sacred Faith, Sevenfold Image, Martiis Nocturnem) decided to leave the Southern CA black/death/metal scene in early 2011 after nearly a decade of chasing a dream, to fill the void in his heart that music alone could not. His desire was to form something musically & lyrically that could best describe the journey of trials, struggles, & then ultimately the transformation that his life had undergone.. a personal testimony of how the void in his heart was filled, written in the form of a musical autobiography.

He would not be alone on this endeavor. His wife of 6 years & elementary school sweetheart, Tanya Petty, immediately signed on as the vocalist of this new project, sharing the desire to write & perform music that expressed the very same experiences that she herself had gone through. Classically trained in opera as well as piano from the time she was a child, Tanya's disciplined, strict classical form soon proved to be the signature sound that would become the voice of Crimson Crux.

In May 2012, Crimson Crux entered the studio to record their debut 17-track indie LP, "Through Divers Temptations". Completely self-funded & uniquely inspired, the album became the band's autobiography sharing their emotional, physical & spiritual state during this season of hardship in their lives, & how deliverance was found through a saving grace.

In May 2013, after 4 months of labouring endlessly in the studio & enduring many complications in the attempt to press the album, Crimson Crux's debut indie LP "Through Divers Temptations" was finally pressed, released via CD Baby & distributed to online retailers everywhere. Immediately after the album's release, the band embarked on two local tours that same year ("The Revival Tour" & "Feed The Bears Tour '13"), followed by another studio session in February 2014 to re-record/re-release their song "Ye Serpent of Olde".

In October of 2014, Crimson Crux entered into the studio once again to record their sophmore release "Of The Times & Seasons" released late March 2015 accompanied by a music video for the first single entitled "Not of the Night".

Today, Crimson Crux still continues to be the musical journey of Nate & Tanya Petty with more music & lyrics yet to be written..
