Mean Creek is a rock band from Boston, Massachusetts.
Vocalists Chris Keene and Aurore Ounjian had previously toured together as a folk duo, before working together on what would later become Mean Creek. After adding drummer Mikey Holland and bassist Erik Wormwood in 2006, the lineup was complete. “This is the final incarnation of the band,” says Holland. “We’re going to release 10 records whether or not anyone gives a shit.”
Youth Companion now out on Old Flame Records
“Youth Companion is indeed the perfect soundtrack to your nostalgic youth, covering almost every facet of growing up and discovering who you are. It starts with naiveté, longing and learning, but ends with the same heartache and bitterness many of us experience at some point towards the end of our innocence.” - CMJ
“Perhaps the most anticipated Boston record this fall, Youth Companion delivers on the passionate heart-on-sleeve promise the quartet offer each night on stage.” -The Boston Phoenix
“Young & Wild’ is a song that is both romantic and reminiscent. And it calls on the grandeur of Springsteen and the rebellion of the Replacements. Here’s to hoping they’re no longer the Northeast’s best kept secret.” - FILTER Magazine
“‘Young & Wild’ pairs girl-guy vocals with a surging, folk-tinged instrumental – sort of like if Death Cab For Cutie recruited a female singer.” – RCRD LBL
