Spotlight: Johnson Crook

JC image.jpg

What the quartet—Noel Johnson (rhythm guitars/vocals), brothers Nathan (lead guitar/vocals) and Trevor Crook (drums/vocals) and Jared Craig (bass/vocals)—share is a love of pure, honest music stemming from their small-town backgrounds. Drawing inspiration from groups like The Eagles, Avett Brothers and The Band. Each member of Johnson Crook contributes equally, injecting their unique personalities into the overall sound built on four voices.

After touring their release, ‘The album’, for the last year they are back in the studio working on a new single due to release late springtime 2019.
