Standard & Substandards
As any good band origin story goes, we came together by complete chance and the intervention of children sharing music at a vegan coffee shop. Caryn Crowley: vocalist / diva. Tim Herzog: fretless bass. Adam Johnston: piano /keyboard. Ian Marshall: Drums / percussion.
Band Short Description
"Standards & Substandards" is a play on our origins in jazz standards and our ambitious to play and adapt any other style of music we can get our hands on. We’re an easygoing quartet (vocals, piano, bass, drums) that loves to play whimsical re-creations, interesting blends of genres, classic jazz standards, or ironic twists on simple tunes. We’ll just as happily perform an upbeat jazz standard as a bluesy torch song, and we’ll also blur traditions of funk, pop, rock, and blues as the spirit moves us. In short, we just like playing music as we’ve reimagined it. It doesn’t hurt to have a charismatic vocalist/diva and playful instrumentalists.
