Today is the day we showcase in front of a few hundred AAA-Radio professionals, label representatives, and other professional musicians. So, you know…there’s no pressure.
The band has spent the past two days bumping shoulders with such musical greats as: K.D. Lang, Iron & Wine, Sia, and many other monumental musicians. Not to mention all of the industry professionals who are also attending to watch the music and network with each other. Imagine seven small goldfish in a tank of barracudas and sharks. This image is somewhat analogous to how The Crooks have been feeling these past few days. At the same time, we are all prepared and confident to deliver our craft and have been making great connections!
Last night we had the opportunity to meet K.D. Lang as well as Sam Beam of Iron & Wine backstage in the musician’s green room. It is such an honor to be in the presence of musicians who have been in the game for so long and who are able to claim such a reputable past; little known have the opportunity to play on the same stage!
I don’t know what else to tell you all. I suppose I am beginning the mental preparation process for tonight and that is all I can think about. So, root us on! Thank you all for your thoughts and support.
Cody Beebe & The Crooks hit the stage of Michele Clark’s Sunset Sessions tonight around 11pm.
