David Peachey's debut album 'Thrasody' means 'brazen song'. 'Thrasody presents songs which sharper and more bitter - these are the group of 'darker-minded' songs,' says David. 'At times they seem very sweet or mellow but the underlying edge is always there.' About David Peachey: Hailing from subtropical Brisbane on Australia's eastern coast, singer-songwriter David Peachey evokes lush and organic folk-rock sounds, telling poignant and thoughtful tales of the heart's struggle. Fiercely independent, self-taught and versatile, David writes, composes and arranges all his own music, and plays most of the instruments heard on his CDs. Described as similar to Nick Drake, Yes, REM, Coldplay and The Cure, David's recordings transcend his live guitar-and-voice style, often using classical or ethnic instruments such as cello, berimbau and pipa. Even in the more rock-oriented songs, his gentle and often haunting singing shines through. In 1998 he released his first EP, Saving Up for a Rainy Babe, which was followed in 2003 by his debut album Thrasody. Two soujourns in Europe during Thrasody's production helped inspire his next CD, Bloemenraad, released in 2007. David has recently released his latest album, Imaginary People. Aside from the Australian radio stations already familiar with his music, David has also gained radio play in both North and South America, Asia and Europe. Recently David has been creating music for impro-theatre performances such as It Came from Somewhere Else, Improck and Gorilla Theatre, and has composed music for several theatre productions, most recently for The Repeated Bombing of Philip Boucher-Hayes, Luurrv!, and In 1916 by Irish theatre group Company D. He has also collaborated with lyricists from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Czech Republic. Contact David via david @ davidpeachey . com.
