Cody Beebe & The Crooks performed tracks from their sophomore album Out Here at one of Capitol Hill’s favorite music spots, Neumos this past Friday (May 10, 2013.) They have shared the stage with various artists such as Rooney, Vanessa Carlton, Stevie Nicks and many more. 300

Out Here was produced in Seattle at London Bridge Studios by John Goodmanson (he worked with other big names such as Death Cab For Cutie, Brandi Carlile and Nada Surf.)

Cody Beebe and The Crooks were originally formed in Seattle around 2009 where they honed their “close to the bone” sound. They released their critically acclaimed debut album, Friends of the Old Mill in June 2009 and have been trudging different roads ever since.

Out Here is an eclectic blend of different musical genres. Each track offers a different surprise. Hold the Line is a gritty and uptempo number that opens with blistering guitars, combined with rocking wall of rhythm. Beebe’s full and gritty vocals soaring over the top set the tone for the rest of the LP.

Never Too Young has a country and blues feel to it. The diversity to this album will appeal to rock lovers while still appealing to an audience with alternative tastes. The harmonious tones of acoustic instruments and violin compliment Beebe’s soft vocal styling on the last track called Counting Sheep. The tune sweeps the listener up and takes them on a mellow and peaceful journey to dreamland.

If you like organic, blues based rock music, spiced up with some heartfelt lyrics and a soulful vocal delivery, Cody Beebe & The Crooks’ newest effort delivers the goods.
