Creamer (Nashville, Tennessee)

Rock 'n' Roll


After a decade as a central figure in the Dallas-Fort Worth music scene, singer and songwriter Philip Creamer recently decided to move his young family to Nashville, TN where he would start work on his first solo project. Dovetail, the band he had formed with his younger brother and longtime friends, had dissolved and Creamer was set on finding a clean slate and new inspiration, so he packed up and headed east. The remaining members of the band went on to form the hit backing band, The Texas Gentlemen, and eventually would end up performing on Creamer’s upcoming album. Soon after moving, friend and Cordovas leading man, Joe Firstman, asked Creamer to open for him at east Nashville's legendary hang, The Family Wash. It was at this show where he attracted the attention of Pat Sansone (Wilco) and Audley Freed (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow).

Quickly, he began a myriad of guest appearance as a featured lead vocalist, most at the invitation of Freed, with the backing of local greats including members of Cheap Trick, Sheryl Crow, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Poco, Sturgil Simpson, and Jason Isbell. Creamer is noted for elating audiences with his expansive vocal range and dynamic, Harry Nillson-esque tone and control. In late 2016, the producer duo of Pat Sansone and Josh Shapera (Flaming Lips, The Autumn Defense) went to work on Creamer’s twelve-song debut album which features members of his former band, Freed, and Canadian drum wizard Dave King. The record wrapped in 2017 and while still unreleased, some tracks found their ways into the hands of tastemaker radio station Lightning 100 who have featured the songs “Magic” and “Daydreamer.”
