Brian Lee Cohen was born in Ada Oklahoma on January 18 1989. Growing up he lived near the Kiamichi and Jack fork mountains on Choctaw territory. His family moved to Springfield Illinois when he was still quite young but he had already absorbed a lot of the Native American culture from the land. He like most young boys had developed a love for rock and roll music after moving away from his southern s. When his family once again moved to a small town just outside of Springfield he fell in love with hip/hop and rap music. It was during a second grade project where he was free to write about anything that he began to feel out his ability to write. Then closer to sixth grade he started putting together lyrics and rhymes for raps and honed his skills throughout the rest of his high school experience. Upon graduating he purchased programs for making beats and began mixing songs. In 2010 people started calling him Creek because of his Native heritage as part of the Creek Nation Tribe. The name just stuck and became his artist name. After years of hard work and dedication his debut album The Last Elemental is being released the summer of 2014.
