INTRODUCING: JK CROWE

JK Crowe has released his debut EP, Buried, on 3QTR/Kobalt, today.

The EP’s simmering, slow-burning track, “Someone Told Me,” premiered today as Zane Lowe’s World Record via his show on Apple Music’s Beats 1.  The song can be heard now – click HERE to listen to it.

Buried was written in Crowe’s home — a trailer behind his grandparents’ house where the Appalachian Mountains spread into northeastern Georgia.  Dying carpet factories, no record stores, fast food. Red maple trees, humidity, Camaros, eighteen wheeler rigs.

On a rare trip to Los Angeles, Crowe met Roofeo, drummer for TV On The Radio, and producer for the likes of Kanye West, Post Malone, DRAM, Buddy, and more through a mutual friend.  They listened through a few of Crowe’s demos, and a week later, JK had pushed his flight so they could make the Buried EP together.  

The resulting collection of songs sounds like Elliott Smith took an electric guitar, a keyboard, and a drum machine on a spaceship through the darkest, most dizzying parts of human consciousness.  The songs on Buried are equal parts bleak and hopeful, delicate and strong, and a perfect introduction to a striking new voice from whom you’ll be hearing lots more in 2019.
