"Unvarnished folk, Americana and some country....That sound has been compared to early Neil Young and Stephen Stills but far more apposite to me is John Prine. At times songwriter and lead singer Thornton Bowman not only sounds like John Prine he writes like him...."
“Thornton Bowman with his raspy vocals and vocal timbre matches Stephen Stills in his younger years.... beautiful melancholic Americana music with a laidback groove. It is a relief to hear the creative melodies, compelling vocals and lyrics about everything Bowman is moved by. ”
“The name ThorNton Creek conjures up the image of a Bluegrass band, but this band has a diverse sound that's hard to categorize - sort of country/folk/pop, but frequently with more edge....”
“...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. ”
