Indie folk outfit Crooked House Road came to be from different corners of Shaina Silver-Baird’s life. Like a five-piece puzzle, the lead singer/violinist met Mirian Kay (vocals/guitar) at an open mic night, recruited her upstairs neighbour Derek Grey, added in university-buddy Tom Mifflin, held on to substitute musician Gram Whitty, and brought in Joshua Skye Engel after seeing him perform at a synagogue.
With the final product now performing as one, Crooked House Road are set to release their debut, self-titled album May 23rd at the Cadillac Lounge in Toronto. In anticipation for the album, the folk/bluegrass group have shared the lead single “Mountain”. Describing their music as containing “rich harmonies, powerful vocal delivery, and honest storytelling”, Crooked House Road have found a spark between folk and indie rock influences; the single will have you up on your feet in no time!
