“Silver Creek Revival’s self-titled debut is pure twangy, indie-folk magic.” - Katie Rosendale of Local Spins

The robust musical talent coming out of Michigan often leads one to think that “there must be something in the water.” This feels accurate for alt-country/indie folk band, Silver Creek Revival, who’s namesake flows through the wooded property near their rehearsal space in Northern Lower Michigan. As singular musicians, Ashley, Sam, Jack, Hannah, and Zak, have strong personal musical identities. When each member brings their own diverse influences and style into the fold, something magical happens. The blend of each instrument, supporting three part harmonies, is easy and genuine.
They released their self titled, debut album on July 1st, 2022. It has been nominated for WYCE’s Jammie’s for best Roots/Americana album, and Album of the Year. Katie Rosendale of Local Spins stated “There’s not a bad song on the record…,” and described it as “perfect for fans of Nickel Creek and Eddie from Ohio.”
With two lead vocalists, the band’s genre is difficult to pin down. During live shows, they easily shift from heartfelt country ballads to gypsy jazz to indie rock, traditional folk, and more. They provide a performance that is both cohesive and unique.
SCR headed back into the studio in December 2022 to record a live EP at Dogtown Studios in Grand Rapids, MI, and is currently writing and arranging songs for their sophomore album, set to be released in summer 2023. With a strong work ethic, and creativity that flows as easy as the Northern Michigan waters, Silver Creek Revival is a band to watch for.
