We are partners in life, love and music. We met in art class when we were fifteen and connected during choir & guitar lessons on Thursdays. To make a long, complicated and peculiar story short, we are blessed with three beautiful children to embarrass and a humble little home in Mondovi, WI. We are independent recording and performing artists.
Our music seems to defy the aspect of genre. We like to think we have a little something for every heart to hear, appreciate, and/or relate to. One might say we are a little folk, a little rock, a little gritty with a hint of bluegrass. Unconcerned about fitting into a certain category of music we create freely and often.
We are dwellers of Driftless Region and some of the lyrics we have written are inspired by the nature we observe here.
Most of our song writing is driven by emotions and patterns of behavior we notice. We find it easier to sing about struggling than to say we are struggling with something. All in all, we are open about our shadows and invite our listeners into the "hamster wheel" we call our lives with every album we release.
Our first album, it's even more impressive if we let you know we had no idea how to do this and did it anyway. Recordings occurred in Dennis Anderson's monolithic dome and Jim Nelson's basement...as our primary residence at the time was a 37 foot RV. The tracks were mastered by Brian Bethke . The encouragement from friends & family during this time will be remembered always.
The second album really shined a light onto the dark sides of the human experience for us. It has a moody but energetic vibe. We manifested our home recording studio that year and dubbed it Buffalo River Records which we later changed to Buffalo River Recordings. Dead Man Pickn' was the first completely independent production by Rock Creek Song Dogs.
Eternity digs deeper with emotional and honest lyrics. It garnered some appreciated attention from local radio and media. We received our first royalty check from a streaming platform in 2020. We spent it on one bottle of booze. We drank that bottle of booze... It's gone now.
In April of 2021 we released our fourth album. Meadowlark is the most intimate look inside ourselves of all our records. It's a dark take on folk-rock with that hint of bluegrass that we don't intend to let leave our sound. We held tightly onto our own reality during the difficulties of the pandemic and because of that clutching these songs of our hearts can be heard by all.
