Gutty Guitars, Expressive Vocals

Live From Riverside is the new CD-R release from Peach, a band fronted by vocalist/guitarist Peach and assisted by guitarist Joey Delgado, drummer Maria Martinez, saxman Paulie Cerra, keyboardist Hardy Eason and bassist Eric T. Ward. The live recording showcases the band's strengths, original contemporary blues compositions with soul/folk edges, classic covers ("I Can't Stand The Rain"), Peach's golden, expressive throat, and the requisite sturdy blues licks and solos. Cerra also handles the lead vocals on "On My Way Home", but this is Peach's territory for the most part. Highlights include the rhythmically buoyant "Muddy Water" and "Never Make Your Move Too Soon", which features an extended Hammond solo by Eason. A wonderful example of a blues band, captured live on stage for your listening pleasure.

alb Peach was raised in Anderson, Indiana and grew up listening to Motown as well as such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith. By the age of 16, Peach was an accomplished guitarist and toured throughout the Midwest playing at universities and coffee houses. Peach attended music school at the University of Denver where she was the featured vocalist for the university's jazz band. After a fourteen year detour in which she founded MicroVantage, Inc., a computer training company, she started playing and recording her own slightly twisted songs in 1999. Currently, Peach is playing local LA clubs and is co-writing with her band.

Touring and more recording are on tap for Peach, as she forges ahead as a blues(wo)man in a male-dominted genre. She'll give the boys club a run for their money.

Jason Dennie

Just Enough Brilliant Fingerstyle

Just Enough is Michigan fingerstylist Jason Dennie's solo acoustic CD for 2000, which features some excellent fretboard moments, as well as special guests, such as Sam Bush on mandolin, Dave Pomeroy on fretless bass and Tom Roady on percussion. 250 radio stations can't be wrong - that's how many have found Dennie's music compelling enough for airplay. Each cut on Just Enough is a magical vision of time, place and space, impeccably recorded, and featuring brilliant musicianship. Standouts like "Runaway Horse", "Highland Dreams" and "An Irish Wake (Part 1)" are impressive, vibrant compositions that draw the listener in for more, still more of Dennie's infectious style. Run, don't walk for your copy of this great work of art.

pic Jason grew up in a family that was heavily connected to the world of bluegrass music. His grandfather often sang with the father of bluegrass, the late Bill Monroe. Despite such exposure at an early age, Jason didn't pick up an instrument until after graduating high school in 1989. Within two years, this self-taught instrumentalist was performing original material as a solo acoustic guitarist. Jason's remarkable style incorporates the elements of folk, blues, bluegrass and celtic music with very contemporary, syncopated, heavily percussive techniques. Jason has since shared the stage with everyone from singer/songwriters Arlo Guthrie, David Wilcox, and Keb' Mo', to Jazz artists Spryo Gyra and Medeski, Martin, & Wood... Bluegrass greats Sam Bush and Tim O'Brien, and other fingerstyle guitarists Pierre Bensusan, Chris Proctor, and Adrian Legg.

In 2000 Jason won the Gamble Rogers Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in St. Augustine, FL, and in 1999 won his third consecutive Cammy Award for Best Folk Instrumentalist.
