CrossFire is a Folk Rock and Blues duo that got its start in Paris, France in 2015. The duo was created after the meeting of singer-songwriter Allison Mareek and singer-songwriter and guitarist Etienne Prieuret.
For the recording of the band's first LP Drifting Ashore, additional musicians joined the band: Drummer Jeff Ludovicus, bassist Thomas d'Arbigny, violinist Nils de Caster, clarinetist Benoit Martin, and cellist Julien Grattard. Raphael Maillet has been joining the band on several occasions since 2018
The band released two studio albums to date, one 4 track EP and one LP: CrossFire - EP and Drifting Ashore.
After the recording of the eponymous EP, the duo decided to fly out to America to confront their compositions to their musical origin starting with Toronto playing venues like the Tranzac Club and New York City with several concerts at the famous Rockwood Music Hall among others.
Strengthened by this experience, the duo then came back to Paris and self-released this first EP in March 2016. Concerts followed, in France and abroad during which the songs for their first LP started to take form.
