ATTN: Friends, family, fans + onlookers…
WE LOVE YOU and we are STILL HERE.
In September, we released our music video for “GLACIERS” with a huge party in our hometown, Hamilton, that couldn’t have been more of a success. The video has been able to reach many people and is the highest viewed video we’ve ever made. We couldn’t be more grateful for all of your support, love and interest in how/what we are doing.
As a band, we’ve taken some time to lay low, get creative, and give birth to the music that we have always wanted to make. We spent some time in Nashville this Fall and we were able to build some amazing new relationships, as well as re-kindle some old ones. It was a great time for us to clear our heads and confirm the direction that we, as a band, have always wanted to go in.
When we released our first record in January of 2010 (3 years ago!), we had no idea of the road that we would (very shortly after) start heading down. The last 3 years have been an amazing journey and we’ve learned A LOT. At the end of the day, we are songwriters who love music and want to MOVE people, not create a mosh pit.
In life, we are always given buy-outs and plentiful opportunities to compromise who we are and what we stand for. No matter what “genre” we get classified into or what anyone thinks, Crooked Hill will always be about the music and reaching the heart of people through it. Period.
In 2013, we hope to record a new record with the material we have been working on so that all of you can hear it! We also hope to spend more time in Nashville writing and creating for ourselves and other artists. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we venture out into these new endeavours. We will keep everyone posted on upcoming shows and dates.
We love you all. We’re still here and we know you are too.

Please Share this video!!
This past spring we, along with Christoph Benfey, Create Media and Colourblind Productions, set out to shoot a music video for one of our favorite songs “GLACIERS” and it has been a labour of love for everyone involved.
We wanted a video that perfectly captured our love for the city of Hamilton and the beauty within its borders. After much planning, shooting, and editing we are excited to invite you all to the “Glaciers” video release party on September 21, 2012!
Make sure to check out the event details on Facebook, watch the teaser trailer below and invite your friends!

We’ve got a lot of amazing things coming up in the next few months that we definitely wanted to share.
First off, we are working on our first OFFICIAL music video for the song “GLACIERS” with Create Media, Christoph at Low Key, Michael Pett and more. With the help and support of our hometown arts community in Hamilton (must give a shout out to Mark at Dr. Disc), we feel like this video is not only going to show Canada what Hamilton is made of, but the vibrant, alive and impressive music scene that is happening in the city. Filming is already in progress and a VIDEO RELEASE Party will be announced very soon!
Second, we’re honoured to be playing with Neverending White Lights at this year’s SPRING MUSIC FESTIVAL Kickoff Party at The Corktown Pub in Hamilton. The show is on Thursday, May 10th – doors open at 8PM!
Last but not least, we couldn’t be more excited to be playing the Burlington Sound of Music Festival in June. We all grew up going to this festival to see great bands play and now we get to be a part of it. We are playing at the Hyundai Stage on Saturday, June 16th at 9PM! It’s a free night so CIRCLE the date in your calendar and come hang out with us!
We will keep you posted with more news and updates. Until then, stay up to date on shows, happenings and fun here on the website. We love you all and without your support we couldn’t do what we do.
