Biography

Coweta OK, United States

Crooked X channel their youthful aggro-energy, hopes, and hormones into a 10-song, self-titled debut album rife with searing guitars, passionate vocals and intense, radio-ready heavy rock. Their organic sound was inspired by the ‘70s, but boasts a new millennium sound.

Amazingly, the members of Crooked X —who have been friends and playing music since fifth grade—are now only 14, mere high school freshmen in Coweta, OK (population 7,000). Guitarist Jesse Cooper emphasizes: “We don’t want to be looked at for our age, because our music is good for any age. And, YES, we do write our own songs!” Crooked X cites everything from Pantera to Hank Williams Sr. to Metallica as influences, and share songwriting and lyrical duties for a true full-band collaboration.

Crooked X’s MPM/EMI/Capitol self-titled debut (out January 27, 2009) features the dark riffs of “Nightmare” (featured in Rock Band™), the first single, “Rock & Roll Dream,” and “Adrenaline,” the subject of a Wayne Isham-directed video. Even before scoring their 2008 deal with EMI, Crooked X were opening for KISS in Europe, touring with Ted Nugent, and released (on October 7th, 2008) a digital-only release of the three-song EP, Til We Bleed, for rabid fans of all ages.

    @tequilaboy180 Couldn't have said it better myself. This makes Three Days Grace seem talented lyrics wise

    tbh, they are good for 14 year olds (15 now?) whatever. the singer has a good voice for his age. Though they aren't anything supreme or epic, they are fairly listeneable..

    Age is just a number people! 14 year olds can make good music, don't look at their ages, listen to their music if you like it. I also disagree with the person at the botom, 14 years olds can't just make poppy, meaningless music.

    These guys sound GREAT for 14-year-olds. Seriously, just think -- they must have gone through puberty pretty early.

    Meh, they're alright. They have a few good tracks but aren't anything special. Not to mention the lead singer dresses and stands like a faggot which isn't doing anything for their image/reputation when they're already bashed for starting too fucking young. They have potential but they haven't earned as much attention as they get yet if you ask me. Also to the people trying to stand up to the people bashing them, shut the fuck up with the stupid "you don't know real musicz!!!1!" bullshit. You're just making yourselves look retarded.

    "there good, but i hate how they wear other bands t-shirts to there own shows :( " LOL I did laugh when I read this. Most bands tend to wear other bands t-shirts, you have to be either a very egotistical or very big band to wear your own in my opinion. I'd wear other bands t-shirts on-stage since I'm proud to pay homage to the artists who inspired and influenced me.
