Hailing from the Sierra Foothills of Northern California, Farrow and the Peach Leaves are the product of a local legacy of excellence in music. Once a hub for gold miners staking their claims, the region is now a mother lode of top-tier musicians. Joanna Newsom, Aaron Ross, Hella, Bobby Birdman, Alela Diane, Crime in Choir, and many other highly-influential artists found their start in the local bars of Nevada City, California–a small town with an improbably eclectic society of musical talent. Born, bred and bathed in this bermuda triangle of music, Farrow and the Peach Leaves have already made their mark with their first album, “Country Wednesdays.” Success from this album has kept them busy within the Nevada County music scene, as well as more broadly. Now, with their second album on the way, they plan to expand their scope, with a series of shows up and down the west coast to bring their unique Sierra Foothill sound to the broader community.
Recorded by Tim Green of Louder Studios, “Honeyslides” is a harder, darker take on the country rock sound that Farrow and the Peach Leaves cultivated with “Country Wednesdays.” With driving, locomotive rhythm, soaring guitars, and a hell of a lot of hard drinking, Honeyslides runs the country spectrum, from smoky honky tonks and strung-out drug runs to that particular California country grief. Honeyslides will be required listening for fans of country music, americana, and nostalgic rock and roll.
