"Taos News"

"Peterson's soulful voice and the sensitive and compelling instrumental backbone created by Creekstone...snag the heart and take it traveling. Going Home is a beautifully crafted set of songs that rides the waves of the journey that begins with longing, turns into searching and ends in finding where we belong.

"If you haven't heard Peterson sing yet, expect to be swept away by the emotional power of her voice. Her polished performance and pithy lyrics are making waves. Her storytelling is clear and poignant." - Ariana Kramer


"Indie-Music.com"

Jennifer's voice really carries this release: passionate and pretty with a twinge of upper-midwest twang (she's from Chicago). The entire selecton exudes energy and passion...Catchy melodies and excellent production that allows her great voice to really shine." - Les Reynolds

"Illinois Entertainer"

'In Your Hands,' the melodic third track, finds her establishing a...distinctive style of writing and singing. 'Only One,' the album's solitary rock tune, paints her as a believably bad ass lover who declares, 'Shut your mouth, get over here and love me.'


- Terrence Flamm

Bio

Jennifer Peterson & Creekstone is a vibrant band from Taos, New Mexico whose music can best be described as Americana with influences of blues, bluegrass, pop and country.

Front-woman, Jennifer Peterson has developed a loyal following of listeners who enjoy her honesty and ability to connect with her audience. Her live performance is powerful with bold lyrics, contagious melodies, and a song-writing style that upholds a tradition of powerful women in music. She has opened for Gretchen Wilson and Kenny Rogers and performed at the legendary Birchmere (Alexandria, VA), Park West (Chicago, IL), the Chicago Cultural Center, The Joint/Hard Rock Casino (Las Vegas, NV), Summerfest - "The World's Largest Music Festival" (Milwaukee, WI), and two of the largest country music festivals, Country USA (Oshkosh, WI) & Countryfest (Cadott, WI). She has also regularly performed with folk duo, Lowen & Navarro and singer/songwriter, Don Conoscenti.

Recently, Jennifer was featured in the book, "Their Love of Music" by photographer Steve Azzato, along-side 116 other musicians including Aaron Neville, Buddy Guy, Dave Brubeck, Nicholas Tremulis, Shawn Colvin, Steve Miller, Tift Merritt and many others. (Quiet Light Publishing)

Guitarist, Randy Morris was born into a family with a long history of musicians including a great-uncle (Charlie Morris) who played with jazz legend, Glenn Miller, during the swing era. Randy has been known as an accomplished left-handed drummer for most of his life. In the 90's his band toured as the opening act for Counting Crows and Live playing at many of the countries largest arenas.

Eventually, Randy became more interested in song-writing and picked up a guitar as a mechanism to assist him. He has become so adept on guitar, and now banjo, that many people are surprised to hear that he was originally a drummer.

Randy and Jennifer began writing and recording together. Their songs have received many accolades including "Home", a track from the new cd, being chosen as a finalist by the "Song of the Year" songwriting contest.

Originally from Chicago, they relocated to New Mexico in 2008 and joined forces with guitarist, K Bolan, to complete their sound. They are often joined on stage by Patrick Turnmire (cajon) and bluegrass player, Don Richmond (pedal steel, fiddle, banjo).

In November of 2010, they released their first cd as Jennifer Peterson & Creekstone. "'Going Home' is a beautifully crafted set of songs that rides the waves of the journey that begins with longing, turns into searching and ends in finding where we belong. [Jennifer] Peterson's soulful voice and the sensitive and compelling instrumental backbone created by the boys of Creekstone snag the heart and take it traveling." (Ariana Kramer, Taos News)

The cd has prompted an out-pouring of excitement and support among listeners. A video for "Taking Me Back to You" was released in March 2011. Jennifer Peterson & Creekstone have begun working on new material and are enjoying a musically-inspired 2012.
