Crooked Folk / Bio

Hailing from Bakersfield, CA Crooked Folk is an indie rock quartet whom blend their influences of blues, funk, rock and metal to create a sound that is fresh and transcendent. The band consists of Ricardo Pacheco on Guitar and Vocals, Matt Jacobs on Rhythm Guitar, Scott McArdle on Bass and Backing Vocals and Matt Hinson on drums. The band began with a chance meeting between Pacheco and McArdle at a local guitar shop where they shared their thoughts about music and decided to collaborate and begin to write music together. With the addition of Hinson and Jacobs the four have developed a cohesive approach to writing music and an unquenchable thirst for live performance. Matt Munos of Bakotopia.com and The Bakersfield Californian shared about the bands debut album, “As a team, Pacheco and McArdle make a great match as equally proficient players with a knack for catchy grooves, especially on the opening tracks, “Cabbie,” and “Breathe,” just two of a number of strong early cuts. It’s an honest and overdue debut designed for fans of the classic power trio that should carry over into the live arena with high intensity.”
