CROOKED WEATHER (Featured on the CD)
Crooked Weather is an East-Yorkshire based folk band that has a distinct, earthy and just a little bit of an unruly sound. They sparked into life in Hull early in 2013. By June they had recorded their debut album, ‘Quantum Mango’, with the prolific Stewart Baxter (of Warren Records) and with the veteran producer John Cox in his hallowed Cupboard studio. The result is consummate Crooked Weather, equal parts chops, unruliness and earthy rhythm. Above all, it finds these men poised intriguingly between youth and experience; on the cusp of something.
2013 was a busy year post Quantum Mango for Crooked Weather. As well as appearing on various radio shows, including BBC Radio Humberside a number of times, they also played a number of festivals during the summer. These included Hull Folk Festival, Galtres Parklands festival and they headlined at Cottingham Springboard Festival. By the end of November Crooked Weather were invited back into the BBC to perform a live session with the champion of new Yorkshire music Alan Raw. “Crooked Weather have become a big part of the East-Yorkshires music scene”, Alan Raw.
Now in 2014 Crooked Weather is looking forward to an exciting year having already laid down the foundations for their second album. They are looking to complete this in time for the busy festival season.
