About CROOK THE KID
Crook the Kid, or Dylan Jones is a genre bending hip hop artist from an isolated village community in Canada’s Arctic called Fort Good Hope. Born and raised in the high north, Dylan has developed a truly unique sound taking influence from a world rarely seen by outsiders. Through mixing tales of a hard knox lifestyle with those of overcoming ones obstacles regardless of the cost, Dylan paints a picture of a beautiful yet brutal existence. The lyrics of each song are a glimpse into the places and events that shaped Crook the Kid not only as a stage presence, but as the person he is today.
Most recently performing at Ottawa Bluesfest 2019, Megaphono 2019 in Ottawa, ON, WestFest in Ottawa, ON, NACC Northern Scene Series in Yellowknife, NT, Vines Art Festival in Vancouver, BC, CBC Radio Live “Trail Blazers” in studio, YK, as well as various other venues in Yellowknife (Pride Festival, Summer Solstice, The Ice Castle, Castle Take Over, The Elks Lounge), Red Deer and Sylvan Lake, AB. His dream is to spread his message of resilience and self empowerment to audiences around the world. In hopes that not only them but the people from his small hometown community will see that “regardless of the obstacles, they can keep moving mountain tops.”
