Peasant

Peasant on the web

Ascending from the quaint and small town of Doylestown
PA, Peasant has been playing and writing music for the better portion of his life. Outfitted in a simple acoustic guitar, awe- inspiring vocal style, and a personality of restrained confidence, Peasant can captivate and quiet even the most rambunctious audience with his simple yet deeply textured sound. The name “Peasant” represents the vivid perspective that Damien DeRose (Peasant’s winsome human alter-ego) uses to write his music; music that intertwines, both sonically and lyrically, with his own personal philosophies.

In addition to the launch of his full length album, "On The Ground", Peasant will soon be releasing a limited edition 7" single and eventually, a 2nd LP in Fall/Winter '09. The music seems to transcend any pre-garnered genre – even that of the Indie-folk-pop listing to which it is often labeled. DeRose's deeply saccharine voice is placed lucidly over beckoning guitar pleas and lulling chords, sometimes with a simple acoustic guitar and other times with waves of organ and electric guitar. The emotional dimension of the sound is matched seamlessly by the carefully crafted words and thoughts of his lyrics.
