Thornton Bowman (Music Tracks)


Home: Seattle, Washington USA   

Composer, Singer and Songwriter Thornton Bowman hails from Washington state, and plays an eclectic blend of roots music. His voice is reminiscent of Neil Young with a Southern accent. Thornton's music covers several different genres, creating a unique style that is hard to categorize. His music has been licensed for several documentaries, heard on NPR, and used by the City of Seattle for their on-hold music.


Here are a few critiques of Thornton Bowman's music, and his band ThorNton Creek.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer: ThorNton Creek has been a reminder of the days when Seattle clubs were ablaze with good-time country rock 'n' roll. A good song, a danceable beat and some hot licks are the recipe for all the 14 tracks on the band's new release, "Whiskey." Thornton Bowman sings in a straightforward high tenor reminiscent of Country Joe McDonald. His vocals are sweetened by MJ Bishop's harmonies. Don Miller's versatile guitar playing ranges from the laid-back swing of "Laugh Away," the roots rock of "Mind Like a Window," to "New One's" psychedelic fire. (Bill White)

Victory Music Review: If you've ever hung out at honky tonks in a small western town watching locals two step and swing to music accented by clinking glasses, then you have experienced the feel of Thornton Creek. And if you listen only for the feel, you might miss something important: the intriguing lyrics of Thornton Bowman.... (Char Seawell)
