Album Notes
CORAL CREEK is an Americana / Newgrass band featuring the original music of Chris Thompson and Bill McKay (formerly of Leftover Salmon and Derek Trucks Band), performing a vast repertoire of original songs and Americana classics by The Band, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Peter Rowan, Bob Dylan and more. CORAL CREEK is a Colorado front-range band playing high energy shows that appeal to audiences across the bluegrass, coutry-rock, blues and jamband spectrum, performing genre-bending original music and unique renditions of traditional bluegrass tunes and Americana classics.

The Road Ahead (2010) and Watch Me Fly (2012) - both produced by Bill Nershi of the String Cheese Incident – launched CORAL CREEK into the heart of the Colorado music scene. Since forming in 2010, CORAL CREEK has performed on festival main stages, concert series and clubs across the US, Europe and the Caribbean. With the addition of Bill McKay on keyboards/vocals, CORAL CREEK has released a fresh new self-titled album produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth ( The album debuted at #3 on the Relix/ Radio Chart and reached #18 on the Roots Music Report Americana-Country Album Chart.

Coral Creek may have only formed in 2010, but as students of the Colorado jamgrass scene, the band has followed in the footsteps of their forefathers, and very quickly gotten not just up to speed, but on their own plane.

Blending deft picking skills, and ever-increasing songwriting depth, Coral Creek’s newest, self-titled album, fits snuggly among other releases in the genre, but band leader Chris Thompson and the rest of the group throw in twists and turns throughout.

The first major curveball comes in the form of a total re-working of Neil Young’s classic song “Comes A Time,” which introduces the group’s newest member, keyboardist Bill McKay, formerly of Leftover Salmon. McKay lends a blistering keys performance the track before taking the reigns on boogie-centric “Crying Bout My Baby.”

McKay’s contributions can be felt throughout the album, and give Coral Creek a new feeling, that often casts off its grassy roots, in favor of more soulful rockers. But the other contributors, from Andy Thorn and Anders Beck to Tim Carbone (who produced the album), Tyler Grant and Arthur Lee Land, demonstrate a group who grew out of the Colorado scene, and continues to grow with its vines and branches intertwined around musicians that reach far beyond the core of the band.
