Peasant Power

A boy with a guitar.

What makes Peasant, aka Damien DeRose, a boy with a guitar different?

Special, even?

Well, I'll tell you.

He's got a voice like butter. And not just "butter". Imagine Mike Myers in his SNL heydays saying "butt-ah". It's like butter.

There is a WOXY session with Peasant when his album On the Ground came out in January, where the production value is similar to that of the record, but his voice shines. The session is acoustic much like the record, but without the production values that take away little errors of string slides etc, it's even better. His voice radiates warm and emotion so clearly. I think Peasant is definitely someone to see live.

Check out the mp3s on the Futurist (WOXY's blog) too.
