The Deer Creek Boys were originally formed in 1999 when brothers Justin Tomlin(guitar) and Jason "Tater" Tomlin (bass) and best friend Cason Ogden (mandolin) started picking locally in their native Amherst, Virginia. Fast forward to the present-day, when the group has been reformed with the members much more experienced and polished.
The group added North Carolina banjo picker Andy Lowe to round out their sound, and have been a festival favorite ever since re-emerging on the scene! With stints in Nothin’ Fancy, Junior Sisk & Rambler's Choice, and the Bluegrass Brothers on the band's résumé, the Deer Creek Boys are a powerful blend of energetic pickin', hard-hitting harmonies, and top-notch songwriting. Turner.
All of the Boys are strong pickers, playing perfectly appropriate accompaniment throughout, before letting loose on their solos. Jeff Partin on reso-guitar and Molly Cherryholmes on fiddle supply able guest appearances as well.
Look for What Goes Up to be the breakout release from this talented outfit. Anyone who appreciates the unbridled enthusiasm of young artists will find much to enjoy in this exuberant display of bluegrass talent.
