From the backroads of Northern Michigan, Silver Creek Revival (SCR) is an Americana/Indie Folk band founded on the idea that the songs come first - songs that are simple, profound and accessible. SCR crafts their songs with a unique approach using banjo, saxophone, lush harmonies and an intuitive rhythm section. The songs - and the band - tell a story.

Jack's musical journey began at 10 years old, after receiving a 1975 Ludwig snare drum from his parents. That same drum has been with him through numerous bands, on stages all over Michigan, and coast to coast. A musical drummer, the challenge to play "what's right for the song" has developed his style and versatility as a musician.
With saxophone as her principal instrument, Hannah has a passion for exploring all aspects of sound, which led her to create music on multiple instruments, and pursue an audio technology degree. As an Interlochen Alum, a singer/songwriter, member of the NMC jazz band, and the Cadillac Symphony Orchestra, she brings her experience home to her musical family that is Silver Creek Revival.
Uncle Dane has been playing the electric bass guitar for over twenty years. He has a diverse musical background, from basement grunge to avant-garde. Providing an intuitive style and childlike playfulness, he creates a dynamic rhythmic layer, adding bounce and groove to SCR's sound.
