Crooks are like a throwback to traditional country music (Hank Williams Sr.) while also maintaining a modern, rockabilly sound. The members of Crooks are Josh Mazour, Sam Alberts, Rob Bacak, and Andrew Vanvoorhees. This four piece Austin based band played at SXSW this past spring and is currently playing in the Austin area – they have a show tomorrow night at the Continental Club. Downtown’s outlaw country drawl is representative of what good indie country should be.
The band has been busy this summer working in the studio with Austin Chronicle Music Awards winner of Producer of the Year, Danny Reisch. However, they recently set time aside to show off some of the new material they’ve been creating. Filmed at an Austin Music Weekly session here is the video for their newest song The Rain Will Come.
