MP3 Thornton Creek - A Different Door
A soulful, lyrical, and sometimes whimsical look at life, love, children, dreams, time and death. Goes well with a glass of whiskey and some M&Ms.

This work came about because MJ Bishop kept demanding it and because Moe Provencher insisted on recording some Thornton Creek music. Then, Mark Drake (drummer) took the lead on the project and became the producer. It''s a different sort of door than the Creek''s earlier works. A bit more mellow. A bit more front porch. But it''s still decidely ThorNton Creek.
...if you like Neil Young, Bowman will have you beaming. The man isn''t a clone by any means, but there''s enough in his voice to get you harking back to old Neil''s acoustic work. As far as his writing goes, the songs are a much more slippery beast, lyrically dense, sometimes even serpentine, uncoiling soul the way a good song should and that little kernel of truth, the way the best songwriters should. (Chris Nickson)
ThorNton Creek oozes out of the cracks between Neil Young, John Hiatt, Wilco and John Prine, but their music is hard to define. Kevin Suggs at Avast! Studios commented while recording their CD "Whiskey" that he didn''t know what to call their music but it would be the music everyone will be playing in 10 years. That was nice.
Thornton Bowman (songwriter, guitar and vocals) and Don Miller (guitar and a host of other things) started with Duane Taylor (guitar) out in 1996. Duane left for a while, some other people came and went, including Steve Miller on bass. Duane came back for a while in 2002-03. MJ Bishop (accordion, vocals, mandolin) joined in 2003, then Mark Drake (drums and humming) in 2004. Steve came back in 2007. Eric Smith (dobro, mandolin, and far too many things to list) showed up in 2010.
Based in Seattle, Washington. Thornton is from Virginia. Eric is from Shaw Island. Mark, Steve, and Don are local. They''re a quiet bunch, hiding out in their secret ThorNton Creek lair.
