Forming in Naarm/Melbourne after bonding over a shared love of Duane Allman and Dicky Betts’ lead work, Creek are four “hippie-looking blokes” with Telecasters, determined to make some noise on this planet. Kicking things off in 2016 as a guitar-centric force reminiscent of early 70’s southern rock, the millennials have branched outward to nurture their unique sound through blending elements of psychedelic/garage rock, funk, jazz, and prog rock. Renowned for their wild rhythms, soulful lyrics, and captivating guitars, it’s in the band’s nature to deliver a mesmerising and electrifying experience.
