Sense of Now (album) - Independently released January 28, 2012



If Alicia Keys and Glenn Danzig shared vocals in a still “Unplugged” Nirvana the result would be Split Crooked from Winnipeg, Manitoba. With simple song structures and instant sing-along, catchy hooks, coupled with powerful drumming and memorable, driving bass lines, Split Crooked is leaping into the Canadian Alternative Rock market.
Every song on Split Crooked’s new independent self-release Sense of Now, available January 28, 2012 was written and arranged by Split Crooked and achieved while remaining entirely independent. With no outside help in writing, arranging, performing, recording, producing, and compiling the 9 tracks on Sense of Now, except three lead guitar tracks performed by friends of the band, the songs were honed onstage prior to being recorded. Split Crooked’s energetic live show earned the band free studio time from supernova.com where they were #1 on the alternative rock charts for five weeks in the summer of 2011. The free studio time proved to the band and most notably Drummer/Producer Chris Wheeler that they would benefit from producing themselves.
Vocalist/Guitarist Randy Sonnichsen, formerly of Winnipeg band Sir Noble began putting together Split Crooked after teaching himself his own straightforward guitar style to compliment his song-writing and to realize his ambitions of reaching as many people as possible with his honest and direct lyrics. The rest of Split Crooked, the 3-Wheeler team of Bassist Jared Wheeler, Vocalist Marie Wheeler, and Drummer/Producer Chris Wheeler comes from a diverse musical background: Jared is the former bass player of thrash/punk costumed maniacs Igor and the Skindiggers, Marie was a featured dancer and actress in the music video for “Nachana ve Nachana” by Bollywood Hip Hop star ishQ Bector, and Chris is the sole owner/operator of CruHouse Studio in Winnipeg.
Split Crooked aims to take their live show on the road this summer and plan on touring Canada in 2012, bringing Sense of Now to as many fans as possible in their drive for reaching the ears and hearts of everyone everywhere.
