Corn Nut Creek is launching its latest original single Trails of Truth on 9th February 2022 – a progression from its country and bluegrass roots that signals a bold new direction for the indie folk duo.
Corn Nut Creek is Tanya Bradley, Melbourne-based banjo player and vocalist and Danielle Vita a Sydney based singer and fiddle player.
The track follows the successful release of the band’s 2020 debut EP Feels Like Travelling Home – a collection of five bright and fresh original folk tracks that mixed Old Time Americana tunes, soulful melodies and hard fiddle-driven Bluegrass.
Corn Nut Creek’s latest offering is an evolution of that sound, freeing the band from its country confines, allowing its composers to experiment, explore and grow.
This is unlike anything we have done before. It’s fresh ground, and a new sound – a clear progression from where we have been. It’s growth and that is not surprising given the circumstances it was created under – Tanya Bradley.
Bradley and Sydney-based American Danielle Vita met nine years ago in Hong Kong, where they played together as part of the Dulcet Tone Collective – a modern five-piece folk orchestra. It was here they discovered their mutual love of folk and bluegrass music and the seeds of a beautiful and creative partnership were planted. They have been performing, collaborating and writing music together for the greater part of 10 years.
This song is about love, regret and holding on to the past. With everyone struggling and the pandemic taking so much, this song speaks to that loss. It is a love letter to those days that you might think on with rose-coloured glasses that are never coming back – Danielle Vita.
