Bio

Sue Scrofa started in the backwoods of Alabama when Alyssa Crisswell broke out some of her dad’s old recording equipment and made the lo-fi pop album Alabamulance. Sue Scrofa (the scientific name for her favorite animal, the pig) soon garnered more attention than expected, landing the young songstress on WERS Boston’s local music week, a spot as a semi-finalist on Prairie Home Companion’s Talented Twenties Competition, and a featured artist on Birmingham’s NPR station. She soon teamed up with Shane Jewell (guitar), Alan F. Rogers (drums), and Roxy Radulescu (bass) transforming the lo-fi solo project into a full out indie-pop band, which Under The Radar believes, “is vying to take their place along side Jenny Lewis/First Aid Kit royalty.” With their second album, White Cat, Sue Scrofa won The Deli Los Angeles’ “Best Emerging Artist of 2011” reader’s poll and toured the West Coast. Now they are back in their hometown Birmingham, Alabama and will release their new EP in November.

"The band is vying to take their place along side Jenny Lewis/First Aid Kit royalty.” -Under The Radar

Sue Scrofa is so unbelievably good. Probably one of the best bands from Birmingham, AL… EVER.” 
– Amber Ritchie, UAB BlazeRadio’s Indie Hour (Birmingham)

"Gleaming pop gems…with masterful instrumentation and catchy hooks." 
– Katrina Nattress, The Deli LA 

White Cat is full of some of the most beautiful Pop gems imaginable” - Radio Valencia (San Francisco)

“Sue Scrofa took some Alabama pop music, dragged it into the Los Angeles sun, and dipped it in some flower power. The result? They done the pop music proud.” - Sessions From The Box (Portland)

White Cat highlights Crisswell’s knack for writing (not to mention her beautiful, folk-goddess voice), as well as her strong Southern roots.” 
– Katrina Nattress, The Deli LA 

“Sue Scrofa is just as good on record as they are live, and vice versa…They are genuinely nice and happy to meet people. Caulk it up to those Southern Manners.” -Radio Valencia (San Francisco)

What distinguishes Sue Scrofa’s home grown blend of folk-rock is Crisswell’s voice. She does look up to country leaning artists like Loretta Lynn and Neko Case, but I also find that her vocals fall along the lines of nineties singer-songwriters like Tonya Donnelly and Sarah Shannon.” - Juan Rodriguez, The Deli LA 

Adventurous pop songlets, making fresh use of keyboards, ukelele, and her en pointe vocals…. refreshing, engaging, and totally original.”
– Birmingham’s Moonlight On The Mountain

Awesome tunes.” WERS Boston
