"When I was young I thought the world was round, but as it turns out it was crooked." - Faded Oak, Crooked World
Cruising many miles down the Canadian highway for days on end, listening to the likes of Johnny Cash, The Band, Neil Young and Lead Belly, an idea to blend their common love of the outlaw music struck Rebecca and Jeremy with the force of a blacksmiths hammer. Faded Oak came to fruition the summer of 2018 off a dusty dirt road, beside the campfire in the Quebec woods. The sound came together with a mix of Folk, Blues, Country and Rock n Roll.
Their first single "Crooked World" which has been described as "Leonard Cohen meets Tarintino" was released October 31st 2018. The self produced track "Crooked World" is a western- bluesy melancholic look at a world that has been depraved. The harmonica howls at the beginning pulling you into the scene of that dusty upside down world as Jeremys low growl explains his awakening while Rebecca supports playing a sombre lead.
August 2019 the magic returns! Jeremy and Rebecca will be cruising across Canada again, driving into inspiriation. Many new haunting melodies will coming your way soon. In the meantime lookout for their next single release, Black Soul, dropping in August.
DARKNESS IS EVEREYWHERE,
SO SHINE A LITTLE LIGHT.
Faded Oak is a Folk-Blues duo from Montreal. Partners Rebecca and Jeremy draw inspiration from all the downhearted, broody and bitter-sweet facets of life.
