As one of Portland’s newest bands, Sharlet Crooks has already captivated a loyal following with music that manages to sound both hauntingly familiar and effortlessly authentic. Reminiscent of Lake Street Dive mixed with Margo Price and Wilco, Corinne Sharlet’s soaring voice combined with Zach Hinkelman’s warm, blues guitar tones propels listeners into a fresh and provocative frontier in modern Americana music.
Sharlet Crooks is the culmination of Corinne Sharlet’s (songwriter and vocalist) long love affair singing and songwriting. After joining forces with lead guitar player and co-songwriter, Zach Hinkelman, Corinne felt like she could finally write the music she had been hearing in her head.
“...the band exudes a kind of country twang that they mix with a thick groove, bluesy guitar licks and soulful vocals. It’s clear that between the singer and the band, Sharlet Crooks are a talented act to be reckoned with.” -- Glide Magazine.
