In a world where music genres are irrelevant today Crooked Coast focuses their writing on powerful lyrics, melodies and undeniable hooks. Sonically, they borrow from hip hop, rock, reggae and more to create something too vibrant to nail down. Their live shows don’t waste a minute getting to the goods. The band’s ability to tell a story and connect with their audience tells a tale of both individualism and community.
Crooked Coast’s 2020 single “Rise & Shine” debuted at #5 on the iTunes reggae charts marking the beginning of their work with acclaimed producer/engineer Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds of Summer, Good Charlotte, The Used.)
Summer 2022 they released the full length album Picture This, mixed entirely by Courtney Ballard. The album finds the band refining their songwriting and experimenting sonically while sticking to their trademark sing along hooks. They spent the summer performing at major festivals like Boston Calling and Beach Road Weekend as well as their own Coast-Fest which they produced and headlined.
The band blurs the line between music and visual art, self producing music videos, graphic design and an extensive line of merchandise.
