The Oak Creek Band is a six piece roots rock group, originally from Sedona, Arizona now based out of Denver, Colorado, known for their soaring harmonies, original melodic arrangements, and high-energy live performances. Described as an eclectic mix of soul and folk influencd indie-rock, the band travels the country independently singing timeless, original songs in the do-it-yourself spirit if the new music industry.
Founding members Daniel and Jenna Watters are both featured on guitar and vocals, with Paul Morris on Wurlitzer piano and guitar, Steve Rogers joins on bass with Ryan Ebarb on keys and Carl Sorensen on drums. Their musical goal: "Spreading our music and message of the importance of coming together as a people in the name of love and peace. Oh, and making a living off our music so we can quit our day jobs," says Jenna Watters. Oak Creek has been performing extensively around the southwest for thousands of people in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Colorado since 2010. The versatility they have gained through playing in a variety of venues for a wide demographic is immediately evident but their musical style, however, is not. "The Oak Creek Band has a hold of their identity, even if that identity isn't something that can be easily categorized," says Peter Washington of Concerted Effort Blog. Courtney Boutwell of GtoC Magazine also conceded, "I was searching and searching; but... I could not identify another band with a similar sound.
Having just sold out of the first pressing of their self-titled EP in less than a year, the new six song EP, "Fingerprints," will feature songs from the band's popular live repertoire including the new single "2012." Production is currently underway in Morrison, Colorado with Josh Fairman at Scan-Hope Sound Ranch. It will demonstrate the same classic song-writing style as their original EP, but hopes to convey the raw energy The Oak Creek Band emits in a live setting. Look for "Fingerprints" to be released this spring!
