Still working on that hot first release.



Not to be confused with the actual Crooked Forest in Gryfino, Poland, this version is the musical brainchild of audio engineer and singer-songwriter Jaimee Jakobczak, a Polish Canadian from Woodbridge, Ontario with an affinity for all things rock n’ roll. 

Not long after getting her hands on her first guitar, Jaimee quickly gravitated towards the art of songwriting and music production. After getting her feet wet forming her first punk-rock band, A Big Dumb Rocketship and landing a co-op position as an assistant engineer to Brian Moncarz at Vaughan’s then-Whirlwind Sound through highschool, she dove deeper into audio engineering studying at Metalworks Institute of Sound. It wasn’t long before she found herself working at Metalworks Studios and back alongside Brian Moncarz and new studio partner David Bottrill at Rattlebox Studios in Toronto.

Years later, with the looming COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently more free time on her hands than she was used to, Crooked Forest was born. The first official release, “A Quiet Place To Scream” is a 3-song EP recorded with 1 microphone in the smallest room of an old King City home with her 2012 Mac Mini, 2 guitars, and the same Sennheiser headphones that she used when first learning how to coil a cable.

The EP ultimately served as a stepping stone into what has now spiraled into a full-fledged creative project; an entirely self-produced, self-recorded personal collection of stories from the journey so far and the future yet to come.
