Short Bio


The Pacific Northwest brings us yet another new musical flavor in the alt hip hop power fusion trio, Free Creatures. The trio was born from emcee & producer Marv Ellis remixing original beats on an MPC live while rapping and freestyling in his beloved and charismatic style. This foundation provides the perfect pedestal for featuring the smooth, sweet swagger of upright bassist and singer Emily Turner, and the expansive effects of electric guitar layers and solos from upside-down leftie shredder Skyler Squglio.

Free Creatures have enjoyed steadfast, all-organic, independent growth since their inception, and continue touring nationally coast to coast, including Alaska and Hawaii. Connecting with true super fans of the widest age range from coast to coast, Free Creatures playfully deliver a heartfelt soulgasm sandwich with every live performance, regardless of the room. 

Artistic Bio

Free Creatures presents as a powerfully welcoming invitation into an exploration of genre, feeling, and thought. A sense of loving playfulness is their main directive, even while navigating through the storms of today’s troubled world. Marv Ellis stands at the helm, steering an MPC Live packed with original beats while charismatically delivering a ten course meal of heavy hitting rhythmic American poetry. Emily Turner stands abreast on the bow, calming the storm with siren-like vocals while simultaneously driving deep, thunderous grooves on electric upright bass. Skyler Squglio expertly mans the mast, harnessing hurricane force winds of melody with his grinning, upside-down, left handed guitar. As you ride the Free Creatures ship into the sunset, you may find a brand new favorite flavor of love on your tongue; the umami of music. Genre free, easy to love, and hard to forget.
