ThorNton Creek Shares Folk Journey Through Appalachian Heritage with "Thin Moments"

Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, amidst cattle farms, coal mines, and rolling hills, lies Abingdon, Virginia. It's a place where tradition runs deep, where the echoes of folk music resonate through the hollers, and where stories are woven into the fabric of everyday life. It's from this rich tapestry of heritage that Thornton Bowman, of ThorNton Creek, draws inspiration for his latest track, "Thin Moments".

Thornton Bowman's musical journey began at a young age, with his sister teaching him his first chords on a 12-string Yamaha guitar. From singing with the Bowman Trio to performing at high school talent shows, music was always a part of his life. However, it wasn't until he found himself in the bustling metropolis of New York City and later settled in Seattle, Washington, that his true musical path began to unfold.

"Thin Moments" is a testament to Thornton's roots, a poignant reflection of his upbringing near the Carter family store in the Appalachian mountains. It's a song that speaks to the soul, evoking images of mist-covered mountains and winding country roads. With its authentic, heartfelt lyrics and soul-stirring melodies, "Thin Moments" captures the essence of Appalachian folklore like few others can.

Accompanied by the talented musicians of ThorNton Creek, including Don and Steve Miller, Mark Drake, and Randy Rush, Thornton brings his vision to life with each strum of the guitar and every haunting note sung. Together, they create a sound that is as timeless as the mountains themselves, a sound that resonates with audiences far and wide.

To say that it is a folk track wouldn't quite do justice to the depth and richness of "Thin Moments". It's more than just a genre; it's a journey through history, a celebration of heritage, and a tribute to the enduring spirit of Appalachian culture. So take a listen, and let Thornton Bowman and ThorNton Creek transport you to a world where the music is as vast and untamed as the mountains themselves.
