The Colorado based group NOT A TOY [open.spotify.com] first began making music together after meeting in high school, which soon lead to a tight-knit artistic chemistry that earned them a record deal with Fearless Records. The group's self-titled debut saw their single “Quit Quitting” gain critical acclaim for its undeniably smooth delivery.
During the pandemic, the group continued working tirelessly behind the scenes crafting what became what is now their forthcoming debut album. Releasing breakthrough singles including the energetic “BAD MOOD” and the recent collaborative effort alongside Poptropicaslutz and Bixby "Bittersweet Teeth." Be on the lookout for their album coming this Summer.
Crooked Teeth started in early 2017 simply as an outlet for founding member Tyson Evans with no grandeur vision in mind other than to make music as a form of catharsis. Since then, the moniker has evolved into a hard hitting, tried and true rock band with the addition of vocalist/guitarist Emma Oakley and drummer Jason Hayes. In 2022, the trio loaded themselves, gear and aspirations in a minivan and set out to rock faces and make new memories. At festivals such as Aftershock and Welcome To Rockville alongside personal favorites like My Chemical Romance and The Smashing Pumpkins as well as headline dates crisscrossing between both coasts, they earned new fans with their big smiles, potty mouth humor and undeniably catchy two to three minute rock anthems. In between touring the band released three singles with the intent of moving closer and closer to a debut full length which they are now hard at work on. The third and final single of 2022, "Promise", landed a ton of support from Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and a whopping 165 spins in one month on Sirius XM's OCTANE channel. Crooked Teeth closed out the year with sold out opening slots alongside Boys Like Girls, Dead Poet Society and are ready to kick off 2023 with their brand hard hitting self proclaimed introvert anthem "Loser" featuring Cami Petyn dropping on January 20th. With a new album on the horizon, the band is headed full steam towards chasing down big dreams and creating a family out of new fans.
