The Crooked Times Two (2)

THE CROOKED LIVE AT LYNX MUSIC STUDIO & AT THE HORSESHOE TAVERN

We got a chance to catch The Crooked at The Horseshoe Tavern on October 4th. It was the release party for their new album First Place Silver. They were kind enough to come down to the Green Room to have a chat with us. We liked the conversation so much that we invited them to come and talk to use at Lynx Music for a private Jam session and to chat more with Sarah Rattray.

Today I’m a little nervous walking into Lynx music. I’m meeting The Crooked for my very first of what is to be a series of live session interviews. The Crooked is a fairly new Toronto alternative rock band comprised of some well known successful artists. JC Sandoval lead vocals/guitar, Neelesh V lead guitar, Russ Shipman on bass and Dell’Orso on Drums. These guys were founded in early 2017 and have already released 2 EP’s. Their debut Shoebox Sessions and the follow-up First Place Silver, so I know they mean business. My instant impression is that they have a great friendship. Joking around with each other and with me while setting up made me feel instantly at ease.  They began with Tarot Cards which totally blew me away, followed by Dog Days which was equally fantastic then Luxury Prison and finished their mini set with Watch me burn and that took my breath away. In fact I had that song stuck in my head for days. The Crooked is a band to watch for sure. I wouldn’t be surprised if I turned on the radio tomorrow and heard one of their songs. Thanks so much, guys for such a fun first day!  -Sarah Rattray

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
