Crow Black Chicken formed in 2009, releasing their début album Electric Soup in 2012 and second album Rumble Shake in June 2014 which charted in the Irish Albums Chart at number 12 in its first week of being released.
Crow Black Chicken have earned a reputation as one of Irelands top blues acts. This power trio of Christy O Hanlon (Vocals, Guitar, Stephen McGrath (Bass) and Gev Barrett (Drums, backing vocals) combine elements of folk and hard rock with the blues rock of bands like Gov't mule, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin to create their greasy blues rock sound.
