"A&R Radar Featured Artist"

The quartet known as the Crawford Brothers fronted by brothers Zac and Ben and rounded out with Adam Harris on drums and Ben Lawrence on bass, have been perfecting their craft in their home country of Australia. Their debut self-titled EP released this past May on all digital platforms, has been met with rave reviews. Zac and Ben site their influences somewhere in between that of One Republic, The Script, and Imagine Dragons with a touch of Yelawolf. The newest single from the band entitled 'Slowly Creeping Back' is a stand out track, that is reminiscent of the style that The Script has made famous. Their musicianship and showmanship shine through in their live shows, with the two brothers sharing lead vocals with infectious harmonies, all contributing to their radio friendly songs. In 2014, the Crawford Brothers placed 4th overall in the Global Battle of the Bands in Thailand after winning in their territory of Sydney, Australia. The Crawford Brothers will be making their Los Angeles debut Wednesday, June 24 at Mrs. Fish where they will undoubtedly continue to turn heads and gain fans all over the world.

"CRAWFORD BROTHERS performs the song "SLOWLY CREEPING BACK" for BalconyTV"

Their talent is undeniable. The ‘Crawford Brothers’ are the latest enterprise of Ben and Zac Crawford, two brothers from the small town of Hinton, about a 30 minute drive west of Newcastle, Australia. Together with Adam Harris and Ben Lawrence they have created a new compelling sound denoting themselves somewhere in the midst of rock, pop, hip pop, rap and state their influences as The Black Keys, Yelawolf, The Script and the White Stripes.
Witnessing the Crawford Brothers live on stage, their talent is undeniable and their musicianship shines through as Ben and Zac share the lead vocals with well thought out harmonies and well structured catchy, melodic and radio friendly songs. Watching this dynamic band take the stage, it becomes difficult to take your eyes off their electrifying performance, especially when Ben and Zac display their charismatic showmanship behind the microphone. Ben Crawford shows a crazy attitude and a lively performance singing and playing piano. Not to be out done you have Zac Crawford hammering away on his guitar or sliding up and down the neck of his lap slide, the diversity of musicianship alone is a recipe for success. Add to this another two extremely talented musicians in the form of Adam Harris on drums/percussion and Ben Lawrence on bass guitar and synth and you have all the ingredients for one very multi talented band. - BalconyTV


Still working on that hot first release.



“Incredible with massive appeal... The influences of what sounds like "The Kooks", "Arctic Monkeys" and maybe "Jet" on this record make me only want to dig deeper into their catalogue.  I absolutely love everything about this record. I could go on and on...” - TAXI A&R (Music Supervisor).

Crawford Brothers’ are the latest venture of brothers Ben and Zac Crawford with Adam Harris (Drums), hailing from the eastern coast of Australia, about a 30 minute drive west of Newcastle.  Quickly the band have sparked major interest with their world class and jaw dropping live shows and a sound adjoining the pop rock genre with elements of hip hop and rap vocals.

Topped off with a fusion of strong musicianship and well-crafted melodic and pop driven anthems, the band proves to be a recipe for success and longevity in this very fast paced and challenging music business. While it’s hard to pigeon hole the bands’ influences and acts of a similar flair and swagger, they state their inspirations as Forster the People, Yelawolf and Imagine Dragons to name a few – prompting the birth of their inimitable and electrifying sound.

The self-titled EP (2015), available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon, gained them key international interest and is making huge waves in their home country of Australia and the USA respectively.

In 2015, the band traveled to America to take on touring from coast to coast, starting at Houston’s Springboard Music Festival.  Leading to performances on the Gus Summers Show, Ed Tyll Show and Balcony TV Los Angeles the band were introduced to Anthony Cole (Complex Ent/Rap A Lot Records) who took a strong interest in the group, offering them a major U.S management deal.
