“Over the past two years, Sweet Crude has managed to take the music and language of Louisiana and produce a completely fresh music that thrusts century-old traditions into the present. The seven-piece band consistently delivers some of the most exciting shows in town featuring enough drums for a small marching band, exuberantly bellowed harmonies and lyrics that jump from English to French in a single verse.” - NolaVie

Sweet Crude premiered in Spring 2013. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 4-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks. "We're making the pop music that we'd otherwise come up with given our influences. We're just singing a lot of the time in Louisiana French. We want to show that the language is still alive and kicking, and that it sounds great in any genre," says primary lyricist Sam Craft, “Our grandparents learned French, but our parents never really communicated with it, so now I feel it’s on the youth to preserve the tradition. It’s wonderful that there are so many Cajun bands singing in Louisiana, and we wanted to do the same thing but with our original music.”

In just two years as a band, Sweet Crude has had an amazing ride. The band won the 2014 Big Easy Award for “Best Emerging Artist” and is nominated for “Best Rock Band” at the 2015 Best of the Beat Awards. Even more compelling is that they have already headlined and sold-out One Eyed Jacks, a 450 capacity venue, and on December 12, the band headlined New Orleans’s Joy Theater for a crowd of over 1,000. They will appear on the main stages at both BUKU Fest in March and French Quarter Festival in early April. Additionally, the band will make their New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival debut in late April.

"Sweet Crude has emerged as one of New Orleans' most intriguing modern rock bands."
