Biography

The Creak is a San Francisco based acoustic quintet rooted in the bluegrass and folk tradition, but with elements of blues and punk helping them forge a sound both new and old. Energetic performances and visible onstage chemistry inspire dancing, singing, stomping and fun.

Formed in summer 2009, the group consists of guitarists Joe Readel and Joe Boone, banjo extraordinaire Chris Underwood, fiddle and mandolin player Korey Kassir, and string bassist Ryan Lim. Joe Readel and Korey usually switch off lead and harmony vocal duties, with the other guys jumping in to sing a song or two every now and then. Early 2011 saw the release of their freshmen effort Here’s To Feeling Good All The Time, a forty minute collection of original tunes. It ranges from from emotional and energetic numbers like “Beaten,” an anti war rally cry; to classic sounding songs like “Biscuits On The Floor,” a song about, well, biscuits; to slower crowd pleasers like “An Axe To Grind,” a tale of love and work in the woods.
