I hope your holidays were swell! It has been quite a while since I posted anything on here, and I apologize! You hopefully have noticed that the site has been redone, and things are a little more simple and a lot more sexy.
So check it out. There are big plans for this year. To start, the band is back. That means less solo shows (besides restaurants probably because hey, I gotsta eat) and more full band shows. Also, this band will not be named "Nick Crook". My friends, I present to you...
the new... the fab...the funky...
The People's Groove.
TPG will be playing the old songs from Soul and others I wrote during my solo venture, but will also be my main writing project. I'm very, very excited as I have always wanted a good band of my own and I feel like we are almost ready to knock your socks off. Here's the exciting thing: We have shows this month! You can find those at the "Where I'm Playing" tab above. Note that some of the shows in the calendar are solo, so be sure to check out what kind of show it is before.
Oh, and what's that? The People's Groove might tour this summer? Crazy...
More soon. Hope you all are doing well. Stick with me and as always, keep it funky.
Stoked to announce my new EP "soul." is now available worldwide on iTunes!! Just search "nick crook soul" and it'll come up. I think they may have messed up the track listing but that's okay haha. Those wanting to jam it before you buy it, lookout for the songs to show up on Spotify in a few weeks.
SIDENOTE! playing a solo show at Lestat's West Music Venue. tonight, should be pretty chill (as in maybe the first set I've played in SD sitting down) and will be trying out some new songs. come hang out. :)
Hello all! This is exciting as this is my first post on my website. neat.
So check it. My last CD came out like 2 years ago, and it was okay. I was younger, much less experienced, and especially now it is no longer an accurate representative of my work. That's why I'm VERY excited to announce my BRAND NEW EP "-soul.-" has been released September 27th, 2014. It has 4 songs that I play often in my sets nowadays and I'm very, very excited with how the recordings turned out. I played at the Adams Avenue Street Fair in Normal Heights that day as my release party and the whole performance can be found in a youtube playlist here.
Look out for the release on iTunes for those of you far away. Stay tuned.
