Rob Crooks is a musician, songwriter and hip hop performance artist. His music is rhythm heavy and hook laden with intelligent lyrics and a delivery that is immediate without pandering to the weary conventions of radio music. With a series of vintage and modern drum machines, sequencers, samplers and keyboards, and a master’s degree in philosophy, Crooks produces danceable, thought provoking music, truly unlike anything else happening in Canada right now.
“Crooks has a one-of-a-kind ability to combine hip-hop and electronic styles in a way that elevates both the aesthetic energy and uniqueness of his music, as well as the socially informed narrative within his storytelling. He is easily one of the most original and interesting artists currently emerging in Manitoba”
