Hailing from Springfield, Missouri, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils have been aptly described as “a ragtag collection of hippies, bohemians, and musicians of no fixed ambition” since beginning their journey in 1971. The years may have come and gone, but they have always been indefinable in terms of music genres, producing sounds of country-rock and electric bluegrass all on the same record, writing lyrics both whimsical and poetic, and singing harmonies that send shivers up your spine. Since their early beginnings, the Daredevils have released a number of major label and independent record label recordings, traveled millions of miles performing throughout North America and Europe, and they continue to grow and maintain a loyal and dedicated fan base throughout the world.
The Creek Rocks is a folk-rock duo from Springfield, Missouri featuring married couple and musicians Cindy Woolf and Mark Bilyeu. Their debut album Wolf Hunter has been referenced as “the sound of Ozark history, the soundtrack of us getting from there to here…filled with warmth and heart” (The New Territory).
