The Crooks Return Stronger than Ever With New Album “Out Here” – Local Band Profile
Seattle based roots rock original artists Cody Beebe and the Crooks have been shaken over the last few years with the losses of Guitar player Greg Floyd and Harmonica/Banjo player Ty Paxton two years after the release of their first album “Friends of the Old Mill” and drummer Chris Green left the band to remain close to home. Never the less, the band has risen up to release it’s sophomore album “Out Here” coming May 7th. The self proclaimed “roots rock” band has been putting out music and touring for several years now. Their first album featured a beautiful mix of country, blues/jazz, rock n’ roll, funk and soul and the new album is a whole lot more with an edgy rock n’ roll push. The band is also the primary creators of one of the northwest premier festivals Chinook Fest. The band is super excited to be moving forward with their music we hope they continue to create and evolve and keep putting out some true blue beautiful roots music. Here’s a taste of what’s to come on the new album, “Out Here” in stores May 7th:

How long have you been playing together?
The Band formed in 2009 with the release of our first album but we had been playing together for many years even before that.
How do you describe your music, what genre?
Cody Beebe & The Crooks make rock music. Roots rock, if you want to be exact. It’s raw, it’s true, and every track is a slice of Americana. It’s as if Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers updated their vibe and sprinkled it with pieces of Big Sky Country, Puget Sound, and Evergreen forests.
Do you have any albums?
Only one at the moment; “Friends of the Old Mill” and “Out Here” coming out May 7th.
