Milwaukee's Spider Creek helps move the local music scene forward

Six people with arms around each other gather for a group photo while mugging for the camera.
Spider Creek

Spider Creek is a music collective based out of Milwaukee consisting of as many as 30 contributors, ranging from musicians and producers to visual artists. The group prides itself on being a “genre fluid" force in the music scene. They have no interest in being confined to any certain genre because their sound bends and blends with the moment.

In their current work, you can hear a mix of hip-hop, alternative, R&B, rock, blues, indie and so much more. What I loved so much about this interview is that you could hear their urgency and understanding that the music they create is about spreading love and positivity.

Spider Creek will be the opening performers this Saturday, Jan. 21, at Cactus Club for a fresh rapper out of North Carolina called Mavi. Take a listen to our interview with three of the collective's members — Lizzie Kay, Saintrè and Ian James — who talk about how this whole thing got started and where it's going in 2023.
