What's up everybody! We're Crown City Krooks (CCK), a rock & roll trio from Los Angeles, CA. We set out to make enticing rock & roll music, true to the uncomplicated roots of the genre.

Our goal is to garner support for our first, full-length studio album. Your contribution enables us to create authentic music, and in return allows us the share our music with you.

"TRUE TO YOURSELF AND TRUE TO THE MUSIC"

We've already recorded the 1st song off the album with our producer Robert Altschuler. Stream our original track "ANIMALS" below to get a sneak peek of the album! (https://soundcloud.com/crowncitykrooks/animals-album-sneak-peaksupport-our-kickstarter)

Being an independent band gives us the opportunity to fully express ourselves and create something real. Your contribution will go directly towards the following:

  • studio time
  • recording costs
  • recording equipment 
  • production, mixing, mastering 
  • design & duplication of the album and artwork  

Our goal is to have this album finished and in your hands by APRIL 2015.

We want each and every contributor to live on our album for life! We will commemorate your support by creating a FAN MOSAIC PHOTO COLLAGE on a dedicated page inside our album booklet. Everyone who contributes will receive further details.

Check out the music video for our song, "MONSTER." Video directed by Scott Nichols (@scottyfivecent) of Sickboat Creative (@sickboat).

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is cutting through the noise and being heard. We believe Los Angeles is the greatest city in the world, but everyone and their dog has a band in LA. Fortunately, we have an amazing team of directors, producers, graphic designers, and promoters all working together to make this album come to life.

A commercial quality album will give us the voice we need to be recognized! We are fully confident in our team of professionals to navigate through all necessary measures to achieve our goal.

Please make sure to share this project with all your friends, and have them share it with their friends. If you are press or have a blog feel free to link to this page and use anything from our site. You can message us via the "contact" button with any questions.

Thank you from the bottom of our souls for your support and contributions. We are excited for what the future holds and for you to become a part of our album for life! #STAYKROOK

Sincerely,
Crown City Krooks
