About Us

The Creak Music is a production team and independent label owned and operated by David Leonard, Seth Talley, and Brad King. Founded with the desire to help artists discover their voice, The Creak is committed to bringing artistry and creativity back to the recording process. Located in Franklin, Tennessee, The Creak Music calls a nearly 100-year-old building its home, a short walk from coffee houses, restaurants and store fronts. The studio is intentionally designed for comfort, creativity and community. The team has spent years cultivating the perfect balance of old and new equipment to fit the needs of any project. The Creak has produced music for a variety of artists, including NEEDTOBREATHE, Cody Carnes, The McClures and Brandon Lake .




In late 2017, The Creak set out to find new ways to come alongside the acts they were producing. After months of dreaming and planning, the team partnered with Integrity Music in early 2018 to establish The Creak Music, an independent label which includes artists Stillman and Ben & Noelle Kilgore. The Creak Music is devoted to enriching culture through fresh perspective on songwriting and production. 


“We want to help amplify the voice of the creative by encouraging originality and pursuing vulnerability.”
