ThorNton Creek
ThorNton Creek (acoustic) is the honed-down version of the full band ThorNton Creek. Thornton Bowman's lyrics and wistful Southern voice are at the heart, and listening to them in this form accentuates the lyrics and the stories. Bowman grew up in Virginia near the Tennessee border. Many of his songs have a Southern, front porch feel. The band began performing in 1996 shortly after Bowman released his solo album In the Kitchen of the Blacksmith. His music has been used in several documentaries and around very many kegs and at least once in a Playboy video.
ThorNton Creek (acoustic) usually features:
Thornton Bowman (songwriter, vocals, guitar) and Don Miller (guitar, mandola, cigar box creations, vocals)
Sometimes it features:
MJ Bishop (mandolin, vocals, accordion, percussion), Eric Smith (dobro, mandolin, banjo, slide guitar, etc.)
About In the Kitchen of the Blacksmith, the Rocket said:
"…if you like Neil Young, Bowman will have you beaming. The man isn't a clone by any means, but there's enough in his voice to get you harking back to old Neil's acoustic work. As far as his writing goes, the songs are a much more slippery beast, lyrically dense, sometimes even serpentine, uncoiling soul the way a good song should and that little kernel of truth, the way the best songwriters should." (Chris Nickson)
About Whiskey, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer says:
"…ThorNton Creek has been a reminder of the days when Seattle clubs were ablaze with good-time country rock 'n' roll. A good song, a danceable beat and some hot licks are the recipe for all the 14 tracks on the band's new release, "Whiskey." Thornton Bowman sings in a straightforward high tenor reminiscent of Country Joe McDonald. His vocals are sweetened by MJ Bishop's harmonies. Don Miller's versatile guitar playing ranges from the laid-back swing of "Laugh Away," the roots rock of "Mind Like a Window," to "New One's" psychedelic fire."  (Bill White)
