In the Cut: The Original Crooks and Nannies

In the Cut: The Original Crooks and Nannies

As Sam Huntington and Madeline Rafter's high school friends started to set their focus on colleges, the two bonded over their desire to continue making music and bypass the academia route. The duo began recording under the moniker The Original Crooks and Nannies, a play off Thomas English Muffins' commercial tag line. While the recording of their debut album Soup For My Girlfriend might have been a learning lesson of "how to write songs together," Huntington and Rafter have taken a giant leap forward with their sophomore LP Ugly Laugh, The Deli Philly's April Record of the Month. They'll be performing this Saturday afternoon outside of The Fire as part of the Sundrop Music Fest, but first, get to know The Original Crooks and Nannies and their Ugly Laugh HERE!
