About The Artists:
Creature Collective is a supergroup of Citizens’ Loft artists, an eclectic group of friends who create music together, while coming from an array of musical backgrounds individually. Coming from the Citizens’ Loft Community, every band member met as part of a production on “Collective’ the first album of the now defunct Chicago based group CTA Creature, which RocNation distributed. As an incarnation of a now defunct band, Creature Collective initially came together for one show only, to perform songs from the former’s album, but it went so well that the band released their debut live recording from that show, via Boston-based record label Citizens’ Loft, entitled “Last Show At The Mint LA,” and decided to continue creating together.
Bringing together multiple states & frameworks for improvisation, Creature Collective has been described as psychedelic rock, roots rock, and blues revival. Having been featured on the Chasing The Blues podcast & being tapped to open up for a late night Umphrey’s McGee member-led superjam, (the show that “Last Show At The Mint LA,” was recorded at), the band has already seen some great opportunities and looks forward to bringing their appreciation for music of all times with their unique modern perspective to the world with their next release.
Sonny Dayes (pronounced “sunny”) is an independent Pennsylvania native and Nashville-based emerging folk singer-songwriter with deep influences in indie rock and contemporary folk. He was born in Lancaster and graduated from Penn State in 2018. His happy, laid-back style sounds like Mac Demarco and Jack Johnson mixed with Fleet Foxes. When Sonny’s music career began to take off in early 2020, he left his engineering job to build a home studio and self-produce his first album, Enjoy the Rain. His message as an artist is that positivity is powerful. And as a lyricist, he communicates this message through personal stories that aim to make the listener smile. Sonny has also been previously featured as a session lead guitarist with Citizens Loft Records. He is currently signed with the same management as Hall & Oates, Huey Lewis & The News, Loverboy, and The Tubes. Sonny’s album Enjoy The Rain released in February and his new single “Sun Come Up” releases July 23rd, 2021. Both are available on all streaming or at sonnydayes.com.
Christie Huff is a country singer songwriter who brings a touch of pop to her soulful sound. She’s an LA girl now, but attributes her country background to her childhood in Arizona. Consistent trips to Nashville to co-write with other country songwriters keep her country ties strong. She is currently working on releasing singles consistently. Christie is well-known in LA and Orange County, and she now performs her original songs both acoustically and with her band. She has performed all over the U.S. and played many historic spots in LA including: Hotel Café, The Mint and The Viper Room. Touring multiple times a year, Christie knows what hard work and dedication mean.
Her recent releases ‘Halfway Fell” and “Palm Reader” both gained over 1 million Streams and were featured on the Hot Country Spotify Playlist, while her prior release ‘Black and White’ is at a lifetime stream count of 3 Million. “Black and White” and “Palm Reader” were also featured on the Soundcheck and Country Risers Apple Music Playlists. Her release ‘Urban Love’ was the one that kicked her Spotify success off, having been picked up on New Music Nashville and holding the playlist for four straight weeks. Her songs have been featured on many high-profile playlists including: New Boots, Hot Country and Wild Country. Christie is also currently on the PopCo playlist cover image.
Christie not only has had success in the streaming world, but also in her live performances. She has gotten to open up for some of the biggest names in country music. Those artists include Jason Aldean, Billy Currington, Kip Moore, Toby Keith, and Bebe Rexha.
Christie splits her time between LA and Nashville and is active in both performing and writing. She was recently featured on ‘The Ty Bentli Show’ giving a 10 Minute Tune about Super Bowl 54 Commercials. Her first full band show was at the famous Whiskey Jam, where her music was met with great acceptance.
