“Rusty Creek draws from a deep well of influences that, in their hands, sound completely original and yet warmly familiar. Their songs range from the fiddle-driven kitchen party stomp (the aptly named “Kitchen Party”) to reflective storytelling (“Emma”). They draw the listener in at every melodic and rhythmic turn.”

Jenna Melanson, Canadian Beats
