ATHENS CREEK BIO
Athens Creek is an Americana roots band out of Southeast Michigan. They have a strong emphasis on male/female vocal harmony and a versatile sound that sways from soft and melodic to punchy and rhythmic.
Created as a folk/rock/country cover band in 2014, they've adopted those sounds to create an explosively unique and original sound. Athens Creek has been defined as an excellent blend of Modern and Classic, and the perfect listening band for all ages.
Athens Creek released their first studio EP in August of 2020 titled "The Road Home" featuring original music produced at The Audio Cafe in Eastpointe, MI with engineer and producer Tom Rice. Along with five inspirational original songs, is the full studio version of "House of the Rising Sun//Amazing Grace" which was added due to the huge YouTube success of a live acoustic version of the same song reaching beyond 6,000,000 views and counting. The band has humble roots and presents a strong message of hope and overcoming obstacles.
Taylor Haring and Nate Jones are the driving force behind the band and its success.
*Taylor Haring: A classically trained, powerhouse vocalist with a love for country; will absolutely blow you away with Underwood and Lovato-esque vocal runs. A pianist, praise and worship leader, and career musician; it's no wonder TV's American Idol invited her to Hollywood in back-to-back seasons.
Nate Jones: A ten year industry performer and songwriter, is the lyricist and male counterpart to *Haring. With Johnny Cash lows, and a "Silver-Bullet" grit, Jones brings a true Detroit Rock-N-Roll attitude and sound. With lyrics that focus toward always striving to be the best You that You can be.
Athens Creek is a true inspiration; A powerful and enjoyable combination of sound.
