The Crooked

Posted by Shane Macaulay on 2017/10/31

The band was founded in early 2017 by friends and long-time comrades in the Toronto music scene J.C Sandoval (Dearly Beloved/Die Mannequin) and Anthony Dell’Orso (Of The Bear Bookings). They were soon joined by Mississaugan wildman Russ Shipman on bass and British-German import Neelesh V. on lead guitar.

Although still a new band, the known profiles of The Crooked’s members created palpable anticipation for the group among Toronto circles. The band held their debut concert at Lee’s Palace in April. In the following months, the group played well attended shows at The Hideout, The Phoenix and Baby G. The Crooked is currently refining their live set for an upcoming slot at Indie Week in November.

The band released their first single and video ‘I Didn’t Know’ in April. They have since adopted a conscious strategy to grow their audience in a visual-oriented music scene. Their second video ‘Tarot Cards’ was released in September and carried a heavy artistic theme. It received an encouraging response from fans and local press. The band is now producing their third single ‘Glove’ for release in fall. This video will feature a strong narrative intended to create further traction.
