Tell us a bit about yourself?
The Crow Family are a four piece from south east London who all met while at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, but don't let that put you off. The emphasis in this band is the song and the story, not trying to cram in everything we learnt during our time studying music. What are our influences? That's an impossible question to answer - we like pop, we like folk, we like funk, we like rock - it's all there in our debut album currently being mixed at 123 productions (Foals, Florence and the Machine to name but two).

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
Like most other bands, absolutely nothing, but there's a real range of styles we like to play. When people are asked what they listen to, most respond by saying that they enjoy a whole bunch of things - I'm not sure this is always an honest answer, but for those who do, I hope they might get something out of our sound.

What’s your back-story?
I suppose the album is largely driven by the lyrics, and the rhythm of the melodies determines the style of the song.

What are you working on at the moment?
The last few months have been spent recording and mixing. 2018 is all about getting out there and playing live.

What's the first song you remember hearing?
Unfortunately I've got a horrible feeling it was something by Gary Glitter.

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song?
One note samba. I'm the guitarist and I can't sing. When the chorus arrives you'd better pray our singer is there to take over

What was the first gig you went to?
Prince

Which song do you wish you'd written?
All of them

Which song changed your life?
No song has ever changed my life

Which song would you like played at your funeral?
My deceased state will render any interest in earthly music moot.

What song is stuck in your head right now?
There isn't one. I'm trying to answer these bloody questions at the moment. No wait, it's back. Tom Misch - South of the River. Mercury prizewinner 2018?

What was the first Album you bought?
This is way too embarrassing and will only be revealed when our debut goes platinum

Which song made you want to play music?
No particular song. What teenager doesn't want to be in a kick-ass band?
