The Heart of Hidden Creek…
Angie & I just want to take a minute to tell you a little about who we are and why we're doing this Hidden Creek Music thing. The two of us and our beautiful daughters are passionate music lovers. We moved to Nashville in 2014 from the land of Cheese and Packers, and eventually settled on a 12 acre property in the gorgeous Bellevue area. Soon after we set out to build a cool new music studio outbuilding, which was completed in late 2018.
After I walked away from the daily grind of a corporate job in Brentwood, Angie convinced me to consider pursuing my passion rather than the almighty paycheck. We also really wanted to do something together as a family on our own property. Along with our love for music, we also have a huge heart for artists and a desire to connect with them and let them know we're really listening to their songs. We thought that even among the countless music venues and studios in the Nashville area, there still might be room for something a little different. What we came up with is Hidden Creek Music - a live music listening room and full service recording studio with the sole purpose of encouraging deep and meaningful connections between music lovers and music makers.
We realized we could provide an intimate space for singer/songwriters to share their songs and bare their souls to an eager and attentive audience with great sound and no distractions. We could also help artists bring their songs to life in a comfortable, affordable, collaborative, retreat-like recording room. Could we pay the bills doing these things? Who knows, but that is a distant second priority for us anyway. This is a labor of love for us more than a business. That’s why we have no cover charge or ticket prices - we don’t want that to be a barrier for anyone. That’s why we share all donations/tips with the artists equally - we don’t get paid unless they do. And that’s why we researched local recording and rehearsal space rates and set ours at the bottom end, while striving to make the whole experience fun and inspirational for the artists and deliver only the highest quality results. Frankly, we wish money didn’t have to be a factor in this stuff at all.
If you’re still reading this far, thanks for hanging in there with me! There’s so much more we would like to say about these things. Please come by sometime to meet us and check out one of our “listening room” style concerts. All of our artists are gifted & compelling singers/musicians/storytellers, and all long to make a real connection with real people who are listening and interested. Please also consider helping us spread the word to your artist and music lover friends who might be interested in what we’re doing. If you have any questions or comments, or just want to say hey, please don’t hesitate to message/call/email/visit…
