Ikes Creek is an ensemble that combines the songwriting, bluesy vocals and instrumental skills of Korey Simeone, with guitar and mandolin of Thomas Moose, and co-lead vocals of Cori Cable Kidder. In 1997, Idaho native Simeone found his way to Austin, Texas where he worked with neo-vaudeville outfit, Asylum Street Spankers and bluegrass satirists, Austin Lounge Lizards. Ikes Creek placed first in the best band category at the Topanga Banjo•Fiddle Contest.

Her debut album “Cellar & Sky” was released in 2015. You may have caught her music if you’ve tuned in to the CW series My Last Days.
