Album from Blair Crimmins & The Hookers out this fall

Blair Crimmins began his current music career in Atlanta, Georgia, with a determination to bring Ragtime and 1920’s style Dixieland Jazz to new audiences. What he created was a sound that is at once modern while being deeply rooted in the past. Now four years—and five hundred shows later,— he has toured the Eastern United States playing large venues and has opened for national acts such as Mumford & Sons and O.A.R.A multi-instrumentalist and music academic, Crimmins writes songs and arrangements for a classic New Orleans style horn section consisting of trumpet, clarinet, and trombone. His debut release, The Musical Stylings Of, became a college radio sensation on WRAS Atlanta, making him the most requested band on the air. His last release and video, State Hotel, landed them a full feature in Creative Loafing Atlanta. In 2012 Crimmins showed his musical diversity by writing and recording the full score for the independent short film “Old Man Cabbage”.

2013 will be another landmark year for Blair Crimmins when he begins touring to support his highly anticipated forthcoming album Sing-a-Longs. The new Blair Crimmins &The Hookers record promises to be a breakthrough record which showcases a band that has polished their signature sound from years of touring.
