Crooked Forest/Jaimee Jakobczak.

Crooked Forest is the kooky spontaneous brainchild of Jaimee Jakobczak tackling social injustices & telling personal stories.

Everything you see on this website, unless otherwise noted as being a creation of another artist (like on The Treehouse) was developed by me (Hi, I’m Jaimee, thanks for stopping by).

In short, I’m a multi-instrumentalist, writer, music producer and I’m very passionate about using creative mediums to express yourself.

You can read more in detail about what this whole website is (because it’s not just promoting my own music of course) in this handy blog post titled “Who and What Is Crooked Forest?

You can also read my lengthy mission statement over on the Mission page.

I’ve released 5 EP’s to date since beginning this project in February 2020.

  1. A Quiet Place To Scream
  2. Tape Deck
  3. Roots
  4. Stumped/Stoop’d
  5. Jestem Krzywm Lasem

These are all home-recorded albums which will soon all have their own pages for you to learn more about them.

I also am working through a cover band project called Jaimee Eat World where I’m recreating Jimmy Eat World’s entire discography. You can read a bit more about that on its page right here.

I also host a music based podcast called The Side Barre.

For a little more check out my EPK or read my quick short bio and blurb below.

The short & simple:

Taking influence from rock outfits like Blink-182, Jimmy Eat World and Treble Charger, Crooked Forest is the independent project of multi-instrumentalist and music producer Jaimee Jakobczak from Woodbridge, Ontario.

Self produced and home recorded, it’s melodic, it’s aggressive, and unapologetically honest as it tackles issues of society at large with snappy quips and crunchy guitars in a no holds barred-DIY fashion.
