Peaches

A real Chicago Blues Diva Peaches Staten has been touring Europe since 1997 playing many festivals and clubs and recorded a CD in Europe with Nick Becattini : “Nick & Peaches – Live at Blue Sun” in 2001. Peaches Staten Band offers a thrilling mixture of gritty vocals and explosive guitar playing, harmoniously delivered in her music deeply rooted in blues and soul with a splash of funk. Real R&B well supported by a very tight band.

She is a product of the Mississippi Delta, though she was born in Doddsville, she grew up in the mix of the thriving Chicago Blues scene and was raised on gospel, blues and soul. Her stepfather was a disc jockey for several of Chicago’s swank Westside clubs and her mother was member of a social club that threw parties where all the well known blues musicians hung out. This petite dynamo started her musical career unexpectedly while working in a blues bar as a waitress : “I was working part-time as a waitress at Rosa’s in Chicago and a girl, who has since become a friend, asked me; Do you ever sing? I said; Yeah in the shower! She said; No really, it seems like you have a good voice! We kept talking and we had a few shots of tequila and suddenly I found myself up on stage” A natural born showgirl with a fatback soul grit voice that makes you want more and more every time you listen to her. She’s a little bit of Tina, Etta and Koko all in one. Her gutsy, growling and energetic show has made her one of the foremost headliners on the highly competitive Chicago blues scene. Peaches Staten has shared the stage and recorded with some of the best in the business such as Katie Webster, C.J. Chernier, Johnny B. Moore, the late Buddy Scott, Billy Branch, Carl Weathersby and lots of others. Early in her career she was featured on many all Ladies Blues Revues with Chicago veterans Bonnie Lee and Karen Carroll. Now she regularly lights up the Chicago blues stages with her versatile singing style and her powerful wash board technique. Influences: Bessie Smith, Lavern Baker, Cassandra Wilson, Turner Vat, Billie Holiday, Howling Wolf, KoKo Taylor, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, etc.

Peaches has a new CD out "Time Will Tell" (Slangmusic)
