Cracker

Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders David Lowery and Johnny Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century – amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,” “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base – that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry – continues to grow each year.

“Cracker have been weaving subtle yet undeniable country twang throughout their sound since their 1992 self-titled debut…the alt-rock radio band known for such hits as ‘Low' and ‘Get Off This' dives headfirst into the California country sound.” – Rolling Stone
