Scott Krokoff weaves elements of folk rock and country pop genres to create evocative and introspective Americana songs that are both confessional and compelling. Influenced by his love of 1960s and 1970s music and accompanied by deft fingerpicking guitar work that combines the styles of James Taylor and Paul Simon with a slightly alt-rock edge, his music is imbued with an energy that reflects his own desire to dream big and live life to the fullest.
Scott began his solo career more than a decade ago after playing in a 1990s college band. He has written and recorded three albums featuring original music dedicated to his philosophy that we must all take risks in life to follow and ultimately realize our individual dreams and goals. His most recent CD, Realizations and Declarations, Vol. 2, was released this year. Scott has played at venues throughout the New York metropolitan area and done shows as far away as Belgium. He recently performed in the 2015 Huntington Folk Festival.
Robinson Treacher is an engaging, high-energy performing songwriter with a powerful voice and unique guitar stylings. Passionate, gritty and soulful, he has drawn comparisons to David Gray, Richie Havens and Van Morrison. “Like a tent revival shouter rooted in gospel and blues – a mix of silk and gravel – the sound is coming from a core somewhere deep,” wrote Richard Cuccaro in a Jan. 2015 Acoustic Live! in New York City cover story entitled Robinson Treacher – Soul Conjurer.
Not one to be pigeonholed into one particular genre, he takes fibers from many — from the bluesy soul of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke to the weathered back- country of The Band and Hank Williams — and weaves them into his own distinct musical tapestry.
Robinson has performed at venues throughout the New York metro area and across the country, including an appearance at the 2015 Huntington Folk Festival. His most recent album, Porches, was released in 2013.
