Hailing from Austin, Texas, Harvest Thieves began as a side-project to Cory Reinisch and Dustin Meyer’s long-running alt-country outfit Guns of Navarone. Harvest Thieves draw on their blue-collar and back-roads heritage to craft songs that sway from brutish garage-rock swagger to traditional country honesty. With punk-ish explosions in sound, to finger-picked folk-rock simplicity, they are a formidable addition to Austin’s historically-minded music scene.They are set to release RIVAL, their first full-length album, in January of 2016, with plans to hit the road in support of the record.
Croy and the Boys
Born in northwest Ohio, Corey Baum became infatuated with Appalachian folk culture at a young age after multiple trips into the appalachian region. This interest in folk, blues and country continued to develop and take hold as did his interest in songwriting as he found a voice within these styles. Ohio’s harsh winters and crumbling economy pushed him south, relocating to Austin, Tx. Over the last decade, Corey, Croy to his friends, has been developing his midwestern take on country and folk music. As a songwriter and singer, he can be heard fronting his country band Croy and the Boysand his more light hearted garage rock project DUMB. He also stays busy playing guitar and singing with local vocalist Jazz Mills and playing bass for Austin’s premier country songwriter Leo Rondeau. Corey Baum wrote this bio in the third person.
