ThorNton Creek / Bio

Thornton Bowman writes songs, plays acoustic guitar, and sings. Steve Miller plays bass. Mark Drake plays drums. Don Miller plays electric guitar and sings. We all play in the sandbox.

ThorNton Creek oozes out of the cracks between Neil Young, John Hiatt, Wilco and John Prine. Why not listen to a sample and make up your own description?

Thornton, Don started with Duane Taylor out in 1996. Duane left for a while, some other people came and went, including Steve on bass. Duane came back for a while in 2002-03. MJ joined in 2003, then Mark in 2004. Steve came back in 2007. Eric came in 2009. MJ moved to Nashville in 2010. Eric began his own adventures in 2011, but still shows up from time to time. The future is wide open.

Based in Seattle, Washington. Thornton is from Virginia. Mark, Steve, and Don are local.

FYI, Thornton Creek is a creek in Seattle. The band's Top Secret Laboratory is located somewhere nearby.

There's a guy named Thornton in the band, but his last name isn't Creek.

You spell ThorNton Creek (the band, not the creek) just like that. With a capital "N" in the middle. Always with an "N". Sometimes people forget the "N", but that's just wrong.
