Hailing from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Crooked Coast distilled celebratory summers and bleak winter into a joyful explosion of indie rock riffs, reggae rhythms, hip hop flows and pop melodies. They cut their teeth and gained a die hard fan base grinding it out on the bar circuit. After selling out local shows consistently as well as touring the states and beyond they decided to produce and headline their own festival; 2019’s Coast-Fest. They sold out a 1,500 capacity bandshell. Their merchandise line expanded beyond their live shows and in 2017 they opened a brick & mortar Crooked Coast retail location/headquarters to showcase their popular clothing line and host events. After self producing a string of albums and singles they were heading to Hollywood, CA to record an EP with acclaimed producer/engineer Courtney Ballard (5 Seconds of Summer, Good Charlotte, The Used) when the pandemic hit. They holed up in their local studio and created the single Rise & Shine. Courtney heard it and he wanted to mix it. The single debuted at #5 on the iTunes reggae charts. The result is the next level of Crooked Coast’s sound and a big step forward into the unknown.
