John Eddie Since moving to Nashville,
Since moving to Nashville, John has been fortunate enough to see his songs recorded by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar, Grammy winner James Otto and new country sensation Brantley Gilbert. One of John Eddie’s proudest moments was seeing “More Than Miles” the heartbreaking ballad he co wrote with Brantley, have a long successful run on the country charts ending up in the top ten for several weeks. The move to Music City USA was also the inspiration for John Eddie’s latest release, “Same Old Brand New Me.” What started out as song demos for other artists turned into one of John’s most personal works to date. 18 songs about growing old, broken hearts and excessive drinking.
Richard Bush & The Peace Creeps
After the breakup of the A’s (a high profile 80’s band from the Philadelphia area) singer Richard Bush tinkered around with a couple of short lived band projects, notable among them the Lion Choir and the Candles. Seeking to establish a sound foundation on which to build his new band Richard approached writer and artist AJay McLaughlin whom he had known from the pre-A’s scene to see if they couldn’t put together a few tunes. After much debate and sharing of what they thought was significant in music (rock, pop, folk, avant-garde, east coast, west coast, British invasion, Americana, psychedelic , Hi-fi, Lo-fi, rat pack, etc , etc, etc.) the pair established a litany of rules that they could break in compelling ways resulting in a catalog of songs both literate and melodic. Songs with the potential to rock like hell.
