CROOKED TIMBER is a two man acoustic band comprised of Scott Ryan and Rob Maloni that utilizes traditional and world instruments in its music such as guitars, bass, mandolins and djembe. The result is a pleasing, original acoustic sound with a variety of influences including folk, rock, bluegrass and country. Rounding out the songs are clever, thoughtful and sometimes cheeky lyrics that repay close and repeated listening.
SCOTT RYAN: Scott has played various musical instruments since 1970 and the guitar since 1973. He has performed solo and in numerous bands spanning the last three decades, including Slumpuppy in the Kent/Akron area, and Gaan on Long Island and New York City. Scott blesses Crooked Timber with his lead vocals and incredibly intricate guitar work as the band's front man now. He is also responsible for the mindblowing lyrics found on just about every Crooked Timber song. Scott currently resides in Silver Lake, OH.
ROB MALONI: Rob began his musical career with a guitar in 1975 and has been in a number of bands since that time. Most recently he played with the Cotton Gin Band out of Northeastern Pennsylvania and with Three Friends in Scranton, PA. Rob provides rhythm guitar, bass, background vocals (with a few exceptions where he takes the front man job over from fellow Timber member, Scott), and percussion on a few songs for Crooked Timber. Rob can be found hiding in the woods behind a tree somewhere in Stow, OH.
