Crafted Conviction

Crafted Conviction (Rock) - Michigan




We are Crafted Conviction from Warren MI. Bringing back the old school Rock N Roll sound with a new age twist!



"Total Satire" Single Review


The track begins with a high octane Rock sound that drives the track forward at full speed. The melodic vocals kick in but the listener is already hooked by its outstanding riffs. The swinging vocals and whirlwind like riffs create a top notch Rock sound around the chorus. The pacing slows down to a crawl until a guitar solo bursts through and gets it back up to a rowdy pace. The last minute of the track dips down a bit with its melody helps close out with incredible depth.

Verdict:
Crafted Conviction's newest single is a rockin' good time for all listeners.



"Breaking Through" Single Review
The track begins with atmospheric tones to set a moody vibe from the get go. The vocals kick in around the thirty second mark as the track picks up steam with its pacing. The instrumentation unleashes a fury of old school riffs after the one minute mark to really get the blood flowing. The driving force of the high octane Rock sound is punctuated by the outstanding vocals that take it to a whole different level. The toe tapping appeal is off the charts as the bridge takes over and hits another gear in its Rock tendencies. The ending sees the track go off the rails in all the right ways to wrap things up in grand fashion.

Verdict:
Crafted Conviction deliver the goods to cement themselves as one of the premier up and comers in the Rock genre.

-Interview- (3/23/22)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Crafted Conviction" and is there any meaning behind it?

Me, the bass player, and guitar player were in another project previous to this one and because of covid-19 the singer decided to step down. So we recruited Katelyn (our current singer) and kept the train rolling. The name came from what we wanna do as a band, and that's to bring back the good ol' rock n roll sound and add a new age twist too it! Conviction: "A firmly held belief or opinion." We believe our sound is what the Rock world wants nowadays with bands coming out such as Greta Van Fleet, Dirty Honey(etc).


2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

We want people to get that "Rock isn't dead" feeling. We want feel good vibes and a good time taken from our music.
