Tillorson Creek is comprised of Six musician; Jenny, Gary, John, Tim, Amy, and Ron referred to by the band and their fans as Uncle Ron (whether he likes the nickname or not). Gary, Ron, Tim, and John have been playing music together for about 10 years all together. Previous genre’s covered by these four include blues, rock, funk, and occasionally a more progressive jazzy feel.
One day Gary and Tim set out to find a new path to follow. A more mellow, grown up approach to music, when they found Jenny Collins. Gary and Tim would show up at shows, gigs, and open mic performances as a team when they stumbled across Jenny hosting an open mic night. They were the first ones to perform for the night and they insisted Jenny perform with them. The rest is history. They soon contacted Uncle Ron and John and began writing songs that bring everyone back to the soulful roots of music. This was the beginning of tillorson Creek.
Later Came Amy DeRiso with such influences as Ani DeFranco, and the one and only Joni Mitchell. She ads a rich soulful sound, and rounds out the band for a 4 part harmony.
Tillorson Creek is quite an original name. It was derrived from the stream located behind Band member and bassist Gary Parker’s home. The name of the stream is Tillotson Creek, and with an evolutionary conversation, some manipulation of the term, and a bit of creativity, the band came up with Tillorson Creek. This is a simplified pronunciation of the name. Essentially we are named after a Stream that does not exist.
Most of the songs that are written are written by Jenny Collins and Gary Parker. However, there is one number written by the both of them despite the title of the song, "Gary’s Song" Which has evolved into the new name Day in Day out on the Shades of Gray album. I believe the name of the song was secondary to the constant funk, slap, quick runs, and melody of the song which were written by Gary. On the more intelligent side of the song are the lyrics which were created by Jenny. Her witty, and clever combinations bring this song a very deep, soulful, back to the roots sort of feel.
The entire band has a "soulful roots" foundation and are influenced by many of the same. Everyone from Jaco Pastorius of Weather Report, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steely Dan, and of course Fetish Lane have influenced the musical creation of this band.
