“Rev. Peyton produces enough power with his guitar and voice to make a puppy pull a freight train. His signature finger-picking style also lends the illusion that there is a talented bassist backing the band, when none exists. Combine all that with his down-home lyrical style, never-say-die attitude, talented wife “Washboard” Breezy, and drummer “Sad” Max Senteney and what blooms is a rose that could crack a New York sidewalk.” – American Blues Scene
“The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band are the greatest front-porch blues band in the world.“ – Blues Magazine
“The musicianship is outstanding & keeps the promise of country-blues proficiency tightly on a leash with sparkling riffs, & formidable rhythms…Rev. Peyton looks like the guy who used to deliver coal – but from coal comes diamonds. His music is a motherlode.” – American Highways
“Like a trusted friend at a party, it grabs you by the hand and steadily walks you in; chatting you up as you come up the walk but leaving no doubt as to exactly when you’ve stepped through the front door. Brilliantly comfortable yet electrifying as all get out.” – American Songwriter
The Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band bridges genres and eras with an intensity and effortlessness few contemporary artists possess. And their new album So Deliciouselevates the trio’s work to a new level. Produced by Rev. Peyton, So Delicious offers the band’s most diverse collection of songs buoyed by the Rev.’s supercharged six-string virtuosity — a unique style of fingerpicking inspired by his Delta blues heroes, but taken to new, original heights.
The fifth full-length original album by the group — which includes Breezy Peyton on washboard and supporting vocals and Ben Bussell on drums and supporting vocals — is their debut on Yazoo Records, a label known for the historic reissues of blues and other old time American music that are the bedrock inspiration for the Rev.’s sound and approach.
