Long before the first volume of his recent 2×4 EP series, everything about Chicago based soul/pop
sensation Aryk Crowder has been about building a sturdy, tangible structure on which his unique vision
can thrive. From his early four-track recordings in a studio apartment to recent grass-roots efforts in
crowd-sourcing and charity work to the hand-stamped artwork and distribution of 2×4 it’s all innovative,
creative and certainly DIY, but Crowder’s ethic also hearkens back to a time before DIY was hip or
underground. With his own two hands, Crowder isn’t building walls in order to stand-out, so much as
Though comparisons to Jeff Buckley, John Mayer or Ben Harper aren’t unwarranted, Crowder sports
more love for true soul music than any of the above, as evidenced through the rustic tones of acoustic
plucks. Whether solo or joined by his infections live band, Crowder has wow’d audiences as an opener for
national touring artists (Yuna, Jordan Knight,Mat Kearney,and more) as well as at a sold-out, debut
appearance at Angels & Kings (owned by Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz). Crowder has also racked up
several stunning live on-air performances on WGN 720AM, WBEZ 91.5FM, Vocalo 90.7FM and Fearless
Radio, reaching worldwide audiences listening over the internet.
Crowder’s connections to his fans and his city are far from done when the final note is sung or the last
instrument cable is wrapped up for the night. He’s bringing human emotion (and handmade keepsakes in
which to collect them) back in an age of a point-and-click music industry.
