LONGER MEDIA BIO

With their unique brand of lyrical storytelling, Americana/Country music and three-part harmonies, Joshua Creek has built a strong and loyal fan-base over the last 12 years while receiving praise from music press, radio and event organizers. During the second half of 2017, the band did 35 shows in the Rocky Mountain area. 

 

Joshua Creek has released six studio albums and one live DVD with reviewers often describing Jeff Hinton’s lead vocals as a cross between John Denver and James Taylor. One DJ aptly described Joshua Creek as “like listening to a Norman Rockwell painting.” 

 

Their songs receive regional and national airplay, including the No. 1 Country-Gospel hits “What Kinda Car?” and the award-winning “Love You Son.” In 2017, their single "Promise You'll Stay" received consistent airplay in the region, followed by "I Fly a Little" in 2018. Other achievements include an FCMA Pearl Award for “Songwriter of the Year” and placements of their songs in national television shows and indie movies. 

Hinton and co-writer/bassist Quint Randle were originally signed to regional record label Covenant Communication (owned by Desert Book), but as the duo sought to reproduce their studio sound live, musical director/lead guitarist Ron Saltmarsh and percussionist James Hollister joined the band.

The result is a striking combination of songwriting, musicianship and storytelling that has led to regular standing ovations at larger public concerts as well as smaller, unplugged, after-dinner shows for corporate clients. 

 

Joshua Creek has played a growing list of respected venues and events including: Abravanel Hall, Vivant Arena, Sandy Amphitheater, Celebrity Series at Dixie State, The Covey Center, The Tabernacle at Temple Square, Heber Valley Cowboy Poetry Festival, Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, SCERA Theatre, Swiss Days, Merrill Osmond's Utah Pioneer Days, Ogden Amphitheatre, plus a list of city/county concert series and corporate clients too numerous to list. (Individually, band members have more than a century of performing experience, literally playing around the world in thousands of performances.)

Saltmarsh, who was based in Nashville for a decade, sums things up:  “And what’s interesting is yes, our songs are designed to take our listeners places, but the songs also take us places too -- literally. And that’s the best thing about being in Joshua Creek.”
