      with guest: Dead Rock West

      Dead Rock West: DEAD ROCK WEST–the acclaimed California alt-country rock group fronted by Cindy Wasserman and Frank Lee Drennen—are heading into 2019 with an array of tour dates. Their recently released album MORE LOVE (Omnivore Recordings) was produced by John Doe of X who helped create an album that places Wasserman and Drennen’s achingly beautiful signature vocals and harmonies in finely etched rock, alt-country and pop settings. The sound is both contemporary and timeless. Click here to listen to “Boundless Fearless Love,” a joyously infectious standout from the album which was praised by Randy Lewis of Los Angeles Times’ Pop & Hiss as he premiered the song and noted it is “set to a propellant track that’s part R.E.M., part Tom Petty and part Neil Young…” Says John Doe: “They have combined all of the influences (alt-country, gospel, Everly Bros) from their previous records into this one. Great songs. Great playing. Wonderful performances. More Love is heart & soul from two deeply original singers & songwriters.” Doe adds: “Somehow Cindy & Frank connect the dots between ’70 country & ’60 soul music. They are a modern day Gram & Emmylou singing songs that Otis & Carla would sing.”

      Peter Case: Three-time Grammy nominee, Peter Case’s work sets the bar for authenticity, passion and imagination and spans a number of genres, including folk, blues, and rock. Raised in Buffalo, NY, Case came to the Bay area in 1973 and worked as a street musician and played in the seminal power pop group The Nerves, before moving to Los Angeles to form the Plimsouls, landing a deal with Geffen Records.

      The Plimsouls achieved success with the hit single “A Million Miles Away,” which landed them a role in the movie Valley Girl, as the band performing during the club scenes. Case’s 1986 solo Geffen Record debut revealed deep roots in folk and blues, and earned him his first Grammy nomination for the song “Old Blue Car” as well as the Number 1 spot on the NY Time’s 1986 Best CDs list. Six CDs later, Case earned another nomination for Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John, a remarkable collection of songs that features Case’s voice and a single guitar. It’s clear that Case is a major talent on the Americana troubadour landscape.

      Case’s 2010 CD, Wig!, emphasized the rock and blues side of Case’s repertoire, while 2007’s Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John demonstrates what Case can do with just his voice and a guitar. With or without a backing band, Case delivers his songs with both intense passion and introspective nuance.
