The Upstart Crows Release Catchy Single “Stuck”

Brooklyn based alt rock band, The Upstart Crows, today debut their catchy single and accompanying music video for “Stuck.”

Lead Vocalist/guitarist Jon Adams.

Lead Vocalist/guitarist, Jon Adams, says the new single displays the “frustrations with feeling stuck in life.”

“Stuck is a catchy ballad reflecting on the frustrations of feeling stuck in life, waiting for change to come, and not being sure if it will ever come.”

Some major influences for writing the tune were Shakey Graves, Shovels & Rope, and Caroline Rose’s first album, America Religious.

Adams formed the band along with band mate and drummer, Forest DeCoste, in the basements on Keene, NH. The two made their way to Brooklyn where they went on to release their first self-titled album. The two recently parted ways, although both are on good terms. Adams says that he was in the process of looking for new band mates when the global pandemic happened, so in the meantime, he’s playing solo.

“Recently Forest decided he wasn’t interested in playing in the band anymore so he quit the band. We are still on very good terms, and we even still play DND every week. I was in the process of finding new band mates and moving the project in a new direction but Covid put the kibosh on that for now. So currently it is just me.”

In regards to live shows and concerts starting back up, Adams says that we still have a long way to go, but he’s hopeful for the future.

“It looks like live music, for now, is live streams. But I bet we will figure out a creative solution to have live music again. I hear some people are doing shows at drive-in movie theaters now. “
