Published May 19, 2015Toronto's Crooked House Road are set to release their self-titled debut album next week, but before it officially arrives, Exclaim! is giving you an early listen to the whole thing.
Originally formed after an open mic meeting between Shaina Silver-Baird and Mirian Kay, the folksy band have since expanded to a full-fledged five-piece. Their debut effort was produced by Ken Whiteley and hears the band offering up 10 new tracks, including the recently revealed single "Tell Me a Story."
In addition to their folk roots, Crooked House Road incorporate elements of country ("Mountain") and soul ("Back to Me"), while showing off their pop sensibilities ("Bundle Up," "Little Girl Heart") and bluesier side ("Music Man," "Mama Taught Me").
The eclectic mix of influences come together on the band's self-titled debut, and now you can hear the final result. Crooked House Road will be released on May 26, but you can give it an early listen in the player below.
