Launched as a folk-country duo, the Austin band has grown, both in numbers and in honky-tonk power.
World Cafe's guest today is a Texas-style, hard-rocking country band. Based in Austin, Crooks formed in 2007 as a duo that played folk and country; in the years that followed, it developed a bolder and louder honky-tonk sound. You can hear that sound on Wildfire, just out, and in this studio session recorded for World Cafe.
