"Tip top cow punk/ alt/ traditional country band blending authentic central Idaho shit-kickery and frontiersmanship with a solid dose of south valley sophistication..."
Ask me anything
What the hell does that mean?
Up a Creek is a Bellevue based shed bred group of fellas playing Southern Idaho Folk 'n Roll. Featuring original song writing, the band can best describe their music as a mix of folk and rock...Acoustic guitars. Electric guitars. Whats the difference? Its all in the story. These boys tell a lot of stories. Stories about lovers and losers, sinners and fools. Sifting through the pieces.Redemption always seeming to be just a bit out of reach...
Southern Idaho Folk n Roll
To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable Ludwig Van Beethoven
For so long we plowed different furrows … the greats … be it of country, rhythm & blues, rock ‘n’ roll … you know what they were doing ? they were messing with your heart and soul. That’s what it was. Nothing has the strength, the power of music Sam Phillips
…A lot of guitar players get stuck on a person … before they find out who they really are … every guitar player should remember be yourself - just let it rip …" - Henry Garza
When I’m on stage, I’m trying to do one thing: bring people joy. Just like church does. People don’t go to church to find trouble, they go there to lose it. James Brown
Once you become predictable, no one’s interested anymore. Chet Atkins
I never tried to prove nothing, just wanted to give a good show. My life has always been my music, it’s always come first, but the music ain’t worth nothing if you can’t lay it on the public. The main thing is to live for that audience, ‘cause what you’re there for is to please the people. Louis Armstrong
If I had my life to live over again. I would have made a rule to read some poetry and listen to some music at least once a week; for perhaps the parts of my brain now atrophied would have thus been kept active through use. The loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional part of our nature.
Holy Cow…once a week?????
