Fly with the Crøw.

Crøw Starbird (born Crosby Alexander Adlard, April 17th, 2000  in Cambridge, MA) is a multi-instrumentalist with a focus on drum set percussion. He is a brother of Phi Mu Alpha and a long-time student of music.

Crøw's pursuit of music began at the earliest possible stage, with his mother and father raising him on a wide variety of classic rock and metal. At age 9, he attended a local musician jam session with his family and got his first glimpse behind the drum set. Thoroughly captivated, he received his first drum set for Christmas a year later. 

From there, he began dedicating himself to academic bands through all of middle and high school, joining two separate jazz bands, concert band, and becoming a founding member of his academy's Performance Jazz Band, all the while taking private lessons and teaching himself in his spare time.

He then went on to win a fourth while associated with the Sanford High School Winter Percussion. He also received a Judge's Choice Award from the Berklee Academy of Music in Boston during the 50th annual High School Jazz Festival.

He attended the University of Hartford as a Film and Cinema major, where he learned valuable video and audio recording skills, along with networking with other musicians, directors and artists. He began teaching himself to play the piano and guitar, and joined Hawkapella, the all-male a-cappella group on campus. He continued to keep his percussion skills sharp by becoming the Rookie of the Year for the University's Pep Band.

While in college, he also began a short career as a radio host and disc jockey for WSAM, opening a podcast with his friend titled "The Shadow Realm".

In his Sophomore year, he joined the Music Fraternity Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, with whom he produced and performed a Ghost and Black Sabbath tribute show for the entire University. He then continued developing his musical skills on his own after leaving College.
