017 Hacksaw Poet: Mitchell Crooks

I totally believe that I have, and everybody who’s creative has, the right to write songs from a totally different perspective. So I have songs that come from nothing that I’ve personally experienced, and that’s kind of a cool exercise to try and write something from somebody else’s perspective.

That’s Mitchell, singer, song writer, Applications Engineer, and handy dad. Mitchell stopped by and shared some of his signature Americana with us and waxed a little poetic about collaborating.

Mitchell’s first album, Forces of Nature, Follies of Man, comes out in late 2018.  Find out more on his Instagram and his Facebook, and soon, at http://www.mitchellcrooksmusic.com.  He recorded his album in Austin at King Electric Recording with Justin Douglas, the sound engineer.  His upcoming show is at Brentwood Social House on Friday, August 31st at 7pm.  Bring your kids!

His wife, Sarah, and their kids, Lily and Oliver, have had their own Chatty Crafties episodes as well.  We love hearing about families that inspire each other to make art, perform, and explore their creative instincts.
