Crow Country Outlaw was formed in 2013 by Sebastian, Mattias, Adam & Putte. The combination of Hard rock and Punk with rootsy influences of old time Blues and Country makes this a sure act to follow up on.
With their 2014 release ”The Last To Fall..” the band broke borders and has since spent their time touring outside of Sweden.
How would you describe your music?
Our music is a mash-up of rock n roll, punk, country and blues which gives it a raw vibe with both deep emotion and groove.
Tell us about how the history of the band?
We have been at this for about 3, running for 4, years now. We have worked hard and played even harder and the result has generated a great deal for us both when it comes to experience and career progress. We started out as side-line punks screwing around on small venues and now we are a touring band trying to make this into a living. There’s been ups and downs but we are still around.
What are you influences/ musical heroes?
There are a major catalogue to choose from, however some inspirations that has been with us since the start is Guns N Roses, Backyard Babies, Kiss and Nirvana.
What inspires you?
We are pretty open for anything to inspire us. Sometimes it is just ’’right place, right time’’ – moments and sometimes you met someone or experience something that just sticks with you and then you write about it.
Do you write on the road? or do you prefer to write in the studio?
We usually write most of our stuff in the studio. It’s easier to focus.
What is your favourite song to perform live?
Devils Grass Blues usually gets a good feel to every show, so that one.
What would be your dream tour to be a part of?
An all expenses paid headline world tour with sold out houses.
What are you current thoughts on the music industry?
This is purely subjective so don’t take us for cynics,. We love music and we love a whole lot of main-stream artists too, alright? The main-stream music industry is in a sort of ’’fast food restaurant’’-state of mind where they make their artists pour out a bunch of really crappy songs for the sole purpose to make money. The money part isn’t such a bad idea, I mean we all want to make a living of this, but to the expense of the listeners of all generations who, for the most part, will be force fed really bad music because it is easier to make a shitty hit song with a great artist. It sucks so bad considering that there is an immense catalogue of really great music beyond and beneath this which will never be heard because the major music companies buys most of the public air time. This is just our view of the main-stream music industry.
What is the funniest/weirdest experience you have had on tour?
That’s a tough one…I remember this one time, a really stoned guy decided to lay down onstage for a nap while we were playing. Or when Adam almost set Sebastian on fire in Scotland.
What are your future plans?
To head on into the studio and record our second album, do some minor tours and shows and promote the new us. We are dead set on making this year our most productive to date!
