Crystalline vocals, delicate acoustic guitar, and warm solo cello combine to create a hauntingly beautiful and unique music. The arrangements sparse, the mood melancholy and bittersweet, imagine a blend of Mazzy Star and Jewel.

Biography

Crystalline vocals, delicate acoustic guitar, and warm solo cello combine to create a hauntingly beautiful and unique music. The arrangements sparse, the mood melancholy and bittersweet, listeners are captivated by the airy vocal harmonies, and praise the music's balance of simplicity and emotional sincerity.

Creeping Lovely's sound is truely unique, but comparisons to Jewel, Mazzy Star, Sarah McLachlan, and even Nickel Creek have found their way into listener reviews.

Formed in San Francisco in 2004, Creeping Lovely began as a musical collaboration between Robb Mills (guitar) and Miriam Barry (vocals). Robb's collection of jazz and classical influenced guitar compositions and Miriam's beautifully crafted vocal melodies blended perfectly to create the music of Creeping Lovely. With the addition of cellist Shana Kirsch, Creeping Lovely's sound became warmer, richer, and even more dynamic.

Creeping Lovely released their self-produced EP in 2005. Their song "I'm Not Ready" is currently ranked #1 on GarageBand.com. The band is featured on several Clear Channel radio websites, and they are 2006 Disc Makers International Music World Series semi-finalists.

Lyrics

Always You

Written By: Miriam Barry

That you want me here tonight,
is bringing everything to light.
It’s alright.
Sorry I won’t be enough.
Please hold on to me in spite.
It’s alright.
Just so you know, it’s all me.
Just so you know, it’s always you.
Tired of seeing things this way.
Maybe I’m too scared of change.
It’s alright.
And so you know, it’s all me.
Just so you know, it’s always you.
You and you and all your insane. . .
You and you and all your games.
You and you and all your pain.
Just so you know, it’s all me.
Just so you know, it’s always you.
Just so you know, it’s all me.
Just so you know, it’s always you.

I'm Not Ready

Written By: Miriam Barry

There you are going nowhere.
There you go keeping me here.
Give what you want.
Whatever you ask of me, and I . . .
See what you are thinking of me.
There you go taking me down.
Do it again put you to shame.
All that I am is all that you take from me, and I . . .
See what you are thinking of me.

Shame.

How do you dare to know me?
How do you dare to feel me?
How do you dare to see me?
Why do I leave myself open?
I’m not ready.

How do you dare to know me?
How do you dare to feel me?
How do you dare to know me?
Why do I leave myself open?
I’m not ready.

Softly

Written By: Miriam Barry

Softly I will stay right here,
watching you.
Pray that I will meet your kind
again some day.

Softly I sleep.
Don’t wake me.
So that I’ll keep this dream of you.

Only hope I will be
just like you.
Gently I will believe
as you believed in me.

Softly I sleep.
Don’t wake me.
So that I’ll keep this dream of you.
