Scott Dangerfield & Crash County Bio
In the summer of 2009 it all came together for the members of Crash County. After a year hiatus from their previous band, singer Scott Dangerfield, drummer Patrick Gonyo, guitarist Jacob Brenwall, and bassist Chris Bartel picked up their instruments once again and began to write new music.
It started with weekend jam sessions in the basement of Scott and Jake’s house in Milwaukee’s Riverwest neighborhood. It soon became clear that the chemistry the band members possessed never missed a beat during their time away from music.
Unlike previous projects, the newly revived band decided to do things their way. They would write the music that they wanted to hear instead of succumbing to outside pressure to conform to the “music d’jour”. In an industry full of copycats and manufactured superstars, the members of Crash County were determined to remain true to their own musical sensibilities.
Crash County received an unexpected boost in 2011
