Originally from Arizona, but in Denver since 2009, The Oak Creek Band may be releasing its "debut" but it's hardly a new project. The band compares themselves to '70s soft rock bands, but truth be told, they're more modern than they think. Simultaneously indie and folky, with poppy choruses, the band nails a very fun album, even in its most tear-provoking elements. Also amazing is the ample use of Denver musicians who guest appear on the release, from members of Yamn!, Toad King, The Congress, and Oakhurst. The transplants have obviously done a wonderful job entrenching themselves in the local scene.

So go the playful opening lines off Lindsay and the Lost Caravan’s debut EP, You Don’t Know Me. It’s a fitting message from the relatively unknown artist whose music is making people stand up and take notice. Based out of the same Denver, CO neighborhoods that helped spawn The Fray, Lindsay Meredith is poised to put the Mile High City on the map yet again.
Blessed with sultry vocals and catchy songwriting abilities that could easily have been used for saccharine-sweet pop, the songstress instead fused her radio-friendly sensibilities with a raucous gypsy jazz flavor to create something entirely new. Described as “…KT Tunstall meets Man Man”, Meredith has coined her distinctive blend of pop-rock, jazz, and Balkan influences: Gypsy Rock; a style as exotic and lively as the artist herself.
Her new-found sound came as a sudden awakening and since that moment, she’s wasted no time preparing it to be unleashed upon the public. Tirelessly developing her first EP, she set about gathering her roving band of gypsies, The Lost Caravan. Together they bring stages alive with weaving guitars, alluring violins, and bewitching vocals; evoking moonlit images of a crackling campfire encircled by mysterious women hypnotically sashaying their pleated skirts to the beat of the music.
Lindsay Meredith now has what she wants and she’s on the move.
