We are finishing up a 6-song ep (the first 3 are playing!) for early 2013 as well as a full-length album for summer (18 new songs!). Watch for us live at the Hard Rock (Jan 4th, Seattle), SXSW in March, and making an appearance in the new movie Never by Brett Allen Smith (two new songs on the soundtrack)!
In Cahoots are:
- Lead Guitar
Front woman Christina Cramer—a former vocal coach at Seattle's Rock School—has a big, bursting rock voice that's more Carrie Akre than Courtney Love, but the six songs on In Cahoots' latest LP play like a mix of both put together: part indie, part radio rock...
Whether or not you've heard of the band In Cahoots before today, soon enough you will be blasting their exquisite tunes in your headphones, car speakers, and at home on your sound system. That is, if you aren't doing so already...
Discovering a band that churns out songs so catchy and infectious that the choruses get stuck in your head for days is diamond-rare, and Seattle, WA's In Cahoots is exactly that kind of gem of a band. They hit sweet spots with energy to spare, blanket crowds with fuzzy tones, and uplift with expert songwriting that transports those lucky enough to catch them onstage to an exalted place. Their new albums will be available in early 2013.
In Cahoots' lead singer Christina Cramer's voice is reminiscent of 80's rock. At least, all that is good about it. Put simply, her voice wails. The first track on their most recent EP, Boxed Wine Country, has her singing over hard-hitting bass and drums and a distorted electric guitar rhythms. There is an edge to her voice one doesn't often hear, especially in the more pervasive indie compositions of today...
Christina doesn't just practice rock: she lives it. With her trusty pug Moxie by her side, Christina enchants the clubs of Seattle, sprinkling rock n' roll dust wherever she goes. An only child of conservative southern parents — she is the proud black sheep of the family. As a toddler, she performed blistering punk rock renditions of the musical Annie for her bewildered family. The roar of rock became an obsession — quickly leading to performing her own music after experience as a backup singer, solo musician, singer of jingles, and a vocal / songwriting coach at Seattle's Rock School. Though she's studied music theory and jazz performance, her true love in life is strapping on a guitar and singing her guts out. Christina's song "Borrowed Time" was a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. After playing music by her lonesome, she formed In Cahoots to have bandmates to stop her from walking into poles, keep her deepest darkest secrets and remind her candy is not a meal. If you see Christina, buy her a Rum & Coke, and she will love you forever.
Drummer Dave Crossett's flourishing musical career was set drumming after a brief stint as Mr. Clean on television that was tragically cut short by the worst case of mononucleosis ever contracted from a UW co-ed, and a failed attempt as a stunt-double for the host of the hit game show Deal or No Deal. After a lengthy recovery and learning to love himself, Dave decided to enter the wonderful world of culinary arts— where he has become world renown for his creation of the worshiped and yummyJesus-toast. as well as his pronunciation of culinary terms, i.e. creamy brûlea for which he makes no apologies to anyone.

I have literally been listening to In Cahoots on repeat for the past day and a half. In Cahoots has an elegant blend of some of my favorite things. For starters, the harmony in their songs in incredibly unique. It's not your typical harmony — it's better. The notes they choose to blend aren't typical and for whatever reason sounds so incredible to me. I've never quite heard a band sound like that before...
In Cahoots is a Critical Sun Recordings, female-fronted, sweet and sour pop-rock band that is exploding in Seattle. You might have seen us before, having played over 100 National shows in the last three years — but now we are playing out 18 new songs off two upcoming albums, featuring a new lead guitar player (Brad Judy), as well as the familiar trio of Christina Cramer's powerful vocals and Dave Crossett's solid drumming and Rich Huston's bass — power pop at its best! Or as we like to say..."guaranteed to melt your face off!"
