The Old Country Crows - Released 19th August 2013
The Old Country Crows headed to Barnroom Studios near Faversham, Kent to record their self-titled debut album in 2013. Recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by the late, great rock legend Bernie Torme the band put together an album of 14 original songs. Most of the songs are still part of the band's current repertoire and several of them are regularly in the top 10 of the band's Spotify chart.
The band entered the studio without a regular drummer and well-known local drummer Roger Diamond stepped-up at the eleventh hour and laid down a solid rhythm. There is also some fantastic piano playing by Bryan Orwell. Bryan has featured on both of the band's albums plus their last release, the Listen To Me EP from June 2021.
The album was released on 19th August 2013.
The collection of songs, some of them written and played from the early days of the band around 2010, were a mixture of country, rock, folk and bluegrass.
