This release has been almost a year in the coming...we recorded all of this EP separately in our homes, a true pandemic passion project that kept us going.

There are so many exciting things happening! So after a break from new posts here...I'm going to be posting a lot over the next few months!
First up, in April, I started working with Falconworks Theater as the Teaching Artist leading their Off the Hook program, where we collaborate with young people (ages 10-13) to help them write original plays. We will be producing these exciting new works virtually in June...more soon!

Wow, every week is such a journey these days...hope all of you are hanging in there!
Continuing to make music and theater during all of this is definitely keeping me sane, and I am so grateful to the other artists I collaborate with for being resilient and creative and INSPIRING ME.
Here are some things I've made (in collaboration with amazing people!) that I want to share...
CREEK AND KILLS has released a new single, "September 15," and all of our music/merch sales on Bandcamp (until we say otherwise) will go to the Center for Reproductive Rights and the National Network of Abortion Funds.

ON THE VERGE
By Kate Bell
Directed by Raquel Almazan
Matt and Stevie are on tour, sharing their very un-douchey electronica performance art with America! Nothing can stop them – except for the snowstorm of the century and a lonely stranger's desperation.

In the Christian Patriarchy Movement, it is wholly appropriate for girls to be seen and not heard as they fulfill their life's mission of submission. But what happens when these docile disciples come to the revolutionary realization that using their voices and making their own choices is not akin to the sin of vanity – or insanity?

Have you thanked your mother today? No One does the dishes forever in this comic look at the never-ending cycle of the domestic labors of love.

Marianne has never been more proud of her daughter, Anne, a recently published academic at the beginning of what will certainly be a highly successful career. She has given her child everything, living vicariously through her achievements. When an unexpected guest arrives at the party, old wounds open and fears of being overshadowed yet again leave Marianne no choice but to speak her truth.
STEADFAST! Part 1
By Jane Willis
Directed by Vanessa Morosco
Washington is at a boiling point. Protesters have been labeled traitors by the President, and their lives are in danger. White and Black women struggle to navigate the deeply embedded racism that divides them from unity. Welcome to 1917 and the Suffragists’ fight for the Vote!

Creek and Kills is making this summer a "summer of giving." After raising over $1200 during the month of June for two anti-racist organizations in the Twin Cities, we're turning toward home, and for July and August, all of our music and merch sales on Bandcamp will go to these two anti-racist organizations here in NYC:
We'll be releasing our new single "The Parade Now" on Friday, August 7th on Bandcamp.
Come help us raise money for both of these amazing anti-racist orgs here in NYC:
Friday, June 5, 2020
Black Visions Collective
and Women for Political Change www.womenforpoliticalchange.org
Both organizations are doing incredible work fighting racism, patriarchy, white supremacy, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, and classism in the Twin Cities and beyond. Let's help them to make lasting change for the better!
We're releasing our new single, "Unstitching," today as a part of our fundraising push to raise money to support anti-racist resistance.
You can see the video for "Unstitching" (beautifully edited by our drummer, Erin!) here:
We wrote and recorded "Unstitching" during the COVID quarantine, each of us working separately, sending files back and forth. I learned how to use Garage Band, Erin learned how to use MIDI drums, and Marc did the mixing/editing with us over video conference. Now that we're back in a space together (in masks), we're loving to get to play this new song as a band in real time.
If you'd like to buy the new single and help us to support the cause, go to the Creek and Kills bandcamp page: https://creekandkills.bandcamp.com/
Special June Dates:
Friday June 5th--"Unstitching" release date and NO BANDCAMP fees--all CREEK AND KILLS sales on bandcamp will go to Black Visions Collective and Women for Political Change
Friday June 19th--All bandcamp fees will go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and all CREEK AND KILLS sales on bandcamp will go to Black Visions Collective and Women for Political Change
Every other day in June...any money we take in for recordings or merch will go to Black Visions Collective and Women for Political Change
Strength and love to you...thank you! xoK
