Crooked Saws recorded their debut album, Mo-Fi’, on a Saturday afternoon in Jesse’s living room using two mics and an old reel to reel machine. They raised five hundred dollars through a Kickstarter campaign, got the album pressed, began booking shows, and then Jesse almost died.

After Jesse’s six weeks in the hospital and three more months recovering, Crooked Saws went to work fueled by the intent only a brush with death can inspire.

In under six months they’ve opened for national act Reignwolf at First Avenue, had their music featured on Field and Stream’s popular show Hook Shots and the Outdoor Channel’s award winning show Head Hunters, and are finalists in Famous Dave’s Battle of the Blues Bands. [+]
