Crooked Still Celebrates Critically Acclaimed New Release
Published June 24, 2008

Signature Sounds recording artist Crooked Still releases their highly anticipated third album, today June 24th, titled Still Crooked. A world tour to support the record will follow.

Today, Crooked Still has released their highly anticipated third album, entitled Still Crooked.

 

The band, made up of founding members Aoife O'Donovan, Greg Liszt and Corey DiMario, along with two new players, presents fluidity across musical genres: old time, folk, bluegrass and world music, on all of their recordings. After five years together, the departure of Rushad Eggleston forced Crooked Still to amend their ensemble. Moving from a quartet to a quintet, two new members join the group, Brittany Haas on five-string fiddle and Tristan Clarridge on cello and second fiddle.

 

Crooked Still drew inspiration from the new, raw creative energy when recording their third record, Still Crooked.  The band recorded the album “live” in a large room together. In a world of computer-altered music, the band wanted to create a sincere album that respects the musical roots from which their sound stems.

 

Crooked Still is singled out as an ensemble who records songs steeped in history, sometimes with such seminal works that go all the way back to oral tradition, all the while delivering them with a modern freshness that demands attention. The group has a global and ever-growing audience. The release of Still Crooked cements their reputation as a vital, young band that dances around the tenets of musical genres.
