The moment Alex Crook stepped on stage he knew he’d found his calling. He was 16 and honing his craft as a harmonica and guitar player. The blooming musician didn’t waste any time, and within a year was performing his original songs on the stages of Brisbane’s live circuit.
Fast forward three years and Alex’s sister, Bec, was thrown in the deep end and handed a bass guitar with which to accompany her younger brother on stage. Her next step was to contribute to the recording of Alex’s debut EP, Character Building, in 2013. They have since maintained a fruitful partnership, spurned by a healthy dose of sibling rivalry.
“There is a competitive nature to being in the studio with your sister,” Alex explains, “as we are always trying to out do each other and play as many instruments as we can and see who can do better, which makes it exciting. “
Now Alex and Bec have released a follow-up EP, 21 Nights. This time Bec’s name is on the cover too. The brother and sister bunkered down in Byron Bay’s Music Farm with producer Paul Pilsneniks.
With a resume that already includes appearances at Caloundra Music Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Urban Country Music Festival, Surfers Paradise Live and Little BIGSOUND, the Crooks’ amazing journey looks set to continue.
