« Above all, CrossFire is a sound.

The sound of two voices, air and earth combined, Allison Mareek’s eerie highs and
Etienne Prieuret’s raw and rugged depths. The sound of two guitars, the lace of a Martin
and the roughness of a Gibson. The sound of two elements the blend into each other with
an ease so great it makes them one, a warm and wrapping sound that transports the
listener to the folk, rock and blues horizons of Americana.
Allison Mareek, English songwriter for numerous artists, was sought by French TV
channel TF1 to sing the ending song to their movie “L’Emprise”, and Etienne Prieuret,
professional guitarist since the age of 16 and freshly returned from a European tour with
American bluesman Keith B. Brown, has joined her on stage for a first concert.
The music could have stopped at this concert, but the alchemy was impossible to ignore.
And so, CrossFire was born in 2015. Each one finds his own place naturally, Allison writes
the lyrics and Etienne the music, and like all things meant to be, the original songs start to
appear.
Four of them make the eponym EP released in 2016, mixed by Michael Harrison (Snarky
Puppy). In parallel, the concerts have multiplied, in France and abroad (Toronto, New
York, Tangier...), and the songs of their first album start to appear. This album 'Drifting
Ashore' funded by an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, was recorded and
mixed in September 2017 with a dream team of musicians in Normandie, France and
mastered in Belgium by Pieter De Wagter (Equus Mastering). It has taken the duo’s
musical universe one step further and is now in your hands and in your ears; the
adventure goes on..."
