Greenfield Project is the debut EP from Cincinnati-based band Elk Creek. It contains seven songs that showcase the band’s unique combination of blues, rock, and folk influences. The EP was recorded and mixed at Ultrasuede Studio in Cincinnati by Brian Niesz (Heartless Bastards, Wussy, The Sundresses) and mastered by Dave Davis. It will be released digitally and on CD on July 1, 2014.
Elk Creek was founded in 2012 by old friends Aaron Price, Jeremy Brown, and Brad Smith. They began writing songs based on life experiences, combining the styles of Smith, who studied classical guitar at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music; the blues harmonica of Brown; and the vocals of Price. The group added Travis Estell on drums and Nick Whittenburg on bass and began playing live shows in early 2014.
Elk Creek’s sound is rooted in the singer-songwriter style of artists like Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Avett Brothers, Band of Horses, and Iron and Wine. On top of that, rock and blues influences such as Blind Melon, Two Gallants, and Sonny Boy Williamson shine through.
