Both well rounded musicians began writing music four years ago. A small creek that ran through their hometown of Fulton, inspired the name Tannery Creek. The band’s influences range from Shania Twain and Garth Brooks to today’s hit country. However it is their musical background that gives their original songs a personal twist.
Towle’s music career hit off in 2003 in metal-core band When Words Mean Nothing. He has played in other punk metal bands until 2014 when he left pop-punk band A Call to Save. While performing this genre he toured in many states, and played the cross country music festival known as Vans Warped Tour. In 2014, Chad collaborated with Ciarra to dream up Tannery Creek.
Broadway type musicals is where Ferguson had her start. Besides high school drama club and chorus, she performed in Annie and Suessical J.R. for the Syracuse Children’s Theatre, as well as a few other shows. Furthermore, studying music therapy in college helps bring emotion to Tannery Creek’s music.
Tannery Creek’s journey has been local venue shows in and around Oswego, including 2Cans and Toby Kieth’s I Love this Bar and Grill before it shut down in Destiny USA. There is a short break on shows for now while they work on more material. The new show dates will hopefully be announced by the end of the summer.
