Description:
 Sue Scrofa started in the backwoods of Alabama when Alyssa Crisswell broke out some of her dad’s old recording equipment and made the lo-fi pop album Alabamulance. Sue Scrofa (the scientific name for her favorite animal, the pig) soon garnered more attention than expected, landing the young songstress on WERS Boston’s local music week, a spot as a semi-finalist on Prairie Home Companion’s Talented Twenties Competition, and a featured artist on Birmingham’s NPR station. She soon teamed up with Shane Jewell (guitar), Alan F. Rogers (drums), and Roxy Radulescu (bass) transforming the lo-fi solo project into a full out indie-pop band, which Under The Radar believes, “is vying to take their place along side Jenny Lewis/First Aid Kit royalty.” With their second album, White Cat, Sue Scrofa won The Deli Los Angeles’ “Best Emerging Artist of 2011” reader’s poll and toured the West Coast. Now they are back in their hometown Birmingham, Alabama and will release their new EP this past June.
