The best kept secret in music

Press


"Creswell rocks with a positive message." - Great Falls Tribune


"...annointed, power-packed... Creswell brings the presence of God in every concert..." - Albert Moore, Pastor @ Evergreen Christian Center


"I appreciated your message and the heart you showed in everything. What you had to say mattered... Our students need God, please keep being creative and real in how you present his love." - Justin Mouttet, Pastor @ Crossroads Church of Denver


"Creswell's credulity rocks the house on stage and off stage. Their unique sound is a combination of unmatched vocal talent and driving guitar riffs with a worship edge. If you are ever blessed with the opportunity to book this band, jump on it." - Brooke Moore @ The Double Edge


"They bring a humble confidence to the stage as they rock out with their unique sound and sophisticated lyrics. One of my favorite bands to host and always a real crowd pleaser." - Charles Weathers---The Foxhole @ George Fox University


"Creswell's sound is reminiscent of the early 1980's punk movement (The Ramones and Elvis Costello) but incorporates modern influences to provide a fresh take to the music." - Christian News Northwest


"I commend them both for service because of their demonstrated heart for God and his Word, their habit of participation in ministry in our local church and their consistent practice of godly living. I expect they would be an asset to any work of God." - Toby Beck, Pastor @ Evergreen Bible Church


"I have no doubt that as Creswell travels they will continue to minister the love of God to those who need to hear it. I can recommend them without hesitation." - Ed Nichols, Pastor @ Newberg Church of the Nazarene


"Real rock; real ministry. Creswell's unique style pounds the heart and reaches the soul. Phenomenal." - Cheyenne McElderry, Pastor @ Lifeway Chapel


"Creswell is a real band, comprised of real people who put on a great show without the regular "rock star" attitude. These guys are the same on stage as they are off stage. Creswell's concert was fun, full of life and honored God. The music and stage presence make them perfect for concerts with wide appeal." - Ron Zimmer, Pastor @ East Avenue Community Church

Bio

Creswell has been performing since 2004. While releasing two independent albums, he began touring, quickly logging over 60,000 miles (with events in 20 states). In 2006 he released the radio single “Ananias” which aired in 65 markets, leading to a short-lived record deal. While in the midst of separating from the record label, he released “Get Away” to radio, which became “Most Added” and “New and Active” on the national R&R charts for Christian Rock. Creswell released a self-titled album in December 2006.

Having weathered the dissolution of a record deal, Creswell found himself in Nashville beginning work on a third album and trying to find his footing both spiritually and personally. “I had been through a lot in the previous year... a lot of stuff that could have brought everything to an end, but I felt that instead of making me jaded, I found that God had brought me through with a stronger faith than I had before.”

Where the material from the Creswell LP had largely been a journal about the struggles and frustrations felt on the road, the new material recognized a hope that had been missing from the previous writings. “In many ways the process of writing the material for THE TORN EP was harder and more of a challenge to my faith than everything that had come before it, but I had this awareness of grace that came from seeing all the ways that God had been there, that an awe of what God was doing began to move to the forefront of what I was writing about.”

With REAL touching on the realization that we can’t measure up to God’s standards on our own, to ALL WE WANT, a song of hushed reverence to the enormity of grace, TORN really encompasses the spiritual journey of CRESWELL over the last year. “With so many conflicting voices pulling in different directions, it’s very easy to get lost in the noise. Looking back on this last year, there was a lot of second-guessing, but in the end, I feel like I have been renewed and challenged in new ways. Through my weaknesses, I have been able to see God work in amazing ways. I are more excited to share this new material than ever before, and I am looking forward to seeing what’s coming.”
