CRAOW aka Sean Halpin
Craow is the moniker of the Providence RI based musician Sean Halpin. Craow’s sound can be described as a unique approach in his song writing using dark beat heavy electronic music falling between the genres of EBM and the “wave” music of the early 80s. Craow’s utilizes thick and heavy rhythmic sounds under cold/and discordant melodies coated with effects while processed vocals deliver topics ranging from personal fears and doubts to metaphors of his own hobbies. Craow performs live with hardware synthesizers and samplers and his voice and has toured many parts of the United States over the past 7 years with other a artist like Timeghost, Pod Blotz , Soft Target, Haves & Thirds, Granite Mask, to name a few.
