Portland, Oregon-based pop-rock outfit, Crown Point are celebrating the release of their debut EP, “Wolves,” April 1st at Doug Fir. A six-song collection of tight, well-produced pop-rock songs, Crown Point delivers a hook-laden, radio-friendly sound that further penetrates your ears with lyrical depth on the EP.
Doors at 8pm, Show at 9pm. Tickets are $8 advance, $10 day of show.
Consisting of Jon Davidson (vocals/guitar), Russell Stafford (vocals/guitar), and Kaycee Kay (drums), Crown Point focuses on hooks as much as they do lyrics, creating a polished, friendly sound that doesn’t grow old or tired after repeated listens.
Formed in late 2009, the band already has a national tour under their belts, as well as an appearance at 2010’s SxSW Music Conference.
The Boise Weekly calls Crown Point’s music “sweet alt/rock with a swirl of pop on top.”
Their debut, “Wolves,” produced by Jeff Johnson (Jet Black Stare, Faber Drive, Adelita’s Way) and engineered by Chris Holmes (The Veer Union, Katy Perry, Simon Collins), and featuring Nickelback’s Daniel Adair on drums, helped Crown Point flesh out their sound and bring to life the ear candy as much as the musical depth in each song.
With the completion and forthcoming release of “Wolves,” as well as constant touring planned by the band, Crown Point hopes to make a mark the old fashioned way. They’ve already written a catchy collection of songs that will resonate with the listener. And, now they plan to pound out the pavement to make sure listeners get a chance to hear them.
