The two friends formed CROW after discovering the ukulele’s humble versatility and song-writing potential. CROW was featured in the Downtown Guelph Music Weekends series in 2018 and performed at Guelph’s Silence Presents in 2017. CROW has opened for Elliot Brood, Lindy Vopnfjord, and Bry Webb (of the Constantines). CROW is from Uxbridge, Ontario.
