“Among the clang of electric guitars Taynee Lord sits upon her vocal throne, producing a heady mix of anthemic hooks and commanding lyrics. Taynee claims to be “No queen bee” but prepare yourself for high octane country twang, walking bass and songs that tuck themselves into a bed of twisted pop. Taynee Lord & The Crookes give you music for sunsets and highways from Bristol to Nashville.
The 5 piece band quickly took shape in Bristol in late 2018 recording their debut EP ‘If Only’ in January 2019. Since then their single ‘No God Of Mine’ charted at Number 1 in the iTunes U.K. country music Charts & has soared to over 30,000 streams on Spotify.
