MP3 David Peachey - Saving Up for a Rainy Babe
5 MP3 Songs
FOLK: Folk Pop, ROCK: Acoustic
Hailing from Brisbane, SoloSingerSongriter David Peachey steps onstage armed with only a guitar, rocking out with a diverse range of genres and styles that sit easily upon his acoustic folk-classical foundations.
Skilfully matching his musicianship with powerful lyrics, David creates evocative stories that touch deep into human emotions and experiences.
A fiercely independent, self-taught and versatile musician, David writes, composes and arranges all his own music, playing most of the instruments heard on his CDs. David''s recordings transcend his live guitar-and-voice style, often employing classical or ethnic instruments such as cello, berimbau and bodhran.
In 1998 he released his first EP, "Saving Up for a Rainy Babe", which was followed in 2003 by his debut album "Thrasody". Two European hiatuses during the production of Thrasody helped inspire his latest CD, "Bloemenraad" released in late 2006. Currently, David is working on his next two CD releases.
Aside from the Australian radio stations already familiar with his music, David has also gained radio play in both North and South America, as well as Asia and several European countries.
"Saving Up for a Rainy Babe" crosses a number of genres, from folk to medieval to middle-eastern. All songs on "Saving Up..." were chosen from audience responses to his live performances, then arranged and recorded with the assistance of medieval group Mythica, and solo artist Alison Dayman.
