“We dig up our songs under a dead tree with a bent rusty fork, we are fluid harmonies over tumultuous verse, an incubation of memory and long-forgotten melody, we are a moonlit walk with rabid hounds...”
Crowboy is an Americana/country rock band formed in Boulder, Colorado, by multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriters Todd Redmond and Christopher Smith. Crowboy's sound is rich in imagery that draws from the roots of country, folk, and rock 'n' roll. They create songs with soulful harmonies and unforgettable melodies, often with a twist of grit and humor. Since their first self-titled EP in 2008, Crowboy has released two albums and performed extensively as a full band, duo, and trio. Their new album "Coming Into View" is was released in October 2017.
In 2014 Crowboy toured Scotland, playing on the shores of Loch Ness and in a variety of halls, festivals, house concerts and pubs between the Scottish Borders and The Highlands. They guested on Radio Saltire and Black Diamond Radio and performed in the beautiful city of Edinburgh with some malt whisky drinking friends they met along the way.
At the end of November 2017, Crowboy kick off a tour to Ireland and will spend Thanksgiving entertaning folks in Cobh, County Cork.
Crowboy perform as a duo, trio or full band. They are versatile musicians and can play unplugged in intimate venues, but they do enjoy raising the roof and getting audiences up on the dance floor! Sets are tailored to suit and can be all original songs or include some well-known covers.
In the 15 or so years that Todd and Chris have been making music together they've spent a lot of time writing and recording songs. Finding some space between work and play they've performed in a multitude of events, venues and fundraisers, mainly in Boulder County where Todd is a Potter and Chris a Graphic Artist.
"Todd's voice is like melted chocolate" said one whisky drinking fan.
"Awesome musicians and great original songs that you want to hear again and again."
"Can't stop dancing!"
PRESS FOR 'COMING INTO VIEW'
"...this is a great collection of songs where the song writing, the playing, the harmonies and the production all work together to create something very original; it may feature murder and mayhem and sinister hitch-hikers but it is tremendously wicked fun."
- Tom Fairnie / songwriter, poet and Radio Saltire host.
“Hurrah! I was really impressed! It is a very strong effort, and a great record. Excellent songs and cool production, Todd's voice is beautiful, and Christopher's guitar work is quite exciting and “new” sounding.” - Jason Ringenberg (of Jason and the Scorchers)
“You can feel the swagger in the steady rhythms and speedy solos on this album, as Todd Redmond and Christopher Smith invoke the golden age of country-western music. With equal nods to Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, the songs relate tales of crimes committed, drinks imbibed and muddy roads traveled. It's the perfect country formula.” - A.H. Goldstein, Westword(Moovers and Shakers / Favorite releases of the year)
"This release comes off with more than a bit of surprise. Recorded over a year, in the spare bedroom of one of the principles on the cd, nearly everything about this record comes off very strong ... Lead singer Todd Redmond has one of the most satisfying rough-hewn Rocky Mountain rock-country voices in the region. Seriously, this is one of the best country-rock records I've heard come out of this area...." - Chris K (aka The Goat) / Colorado Music Buzz
"Crowboy will have you up on the dance floor, crying into your beer and playing your air-guitar along with Chris' spell-binding riffs and solos. Todd has one of the finest country voices I've ever heard, whether he's singing rock or a heartrending ballad, and their harmonies are awesome." / Radio Saltire, Scotland.
