About Split Tongue Crow
Rutland, VT, US
We've been described as folk, newgrass, americana, alt-country, backwoods, indie-rock, lo-fi, acoustic, mountain music, and about everything else you could think of. But personally, we think of ourselves as good old, "hill and valley folk" and as such, think it should be a genre. So perhaps we're coining the phrase. Hey, we're Split Tongue Crow and we play, "hill and valley folk". Simply because our sound comes from who we are and where we grew up, a sum far greater than its parts. We didn't get together in a room one day and say, "hey, lets sound like this" or "let's sound like that". Frankly, there was never and has never been a conversation about "our sound". Our process, like our surroundings, is simply organic and we're proud of that fact. We grew up in the backwoods hills and valleys of the North East United States. So, not surprisingly, that's where our sound comes from. We sound like the hills and sound like the valleys. We sound like us. We sound like Vermonters.
