Watch & Listen
Peter Case is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and producer, a mighty fine guitarist and a well-reviewed published author and yet, he's most at home on the stage. For 25 years, Peter, his guitar and his songs have mesmerized audiences from coast to coast, whether holding down a festival crowd, warming up the place for luminaries like Jackson Browne and John Prine or headlining his own nightclub shows—of which he can claimed to have logged thousands.
As leader of the Plimsouls, and as a member of the groundbreaking punk era trio the Nerves and duo the Breakaways, Case earned his four stars a long time ago, while new generations continue to discover his unique amalgam of sound (2010 saw successful reisussues on all three bands). His songs have been featured on the hit TV series True Blood, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood.
Playing a blend of vintage rock 'n' roll, blues, traditional and contemporary folk, and soul, he remains an original modern troubadour. He's passionate about writing songs and connecting to real audiences, no matter the size. He regularly tours the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe, and his hardcore fans everywhere bring a deep connection to the songs and to the artist. Wig! His latest recording for Yep Roc was his eleventh solo album. The Case Files, his twelfth, was a compilation of rare and unreleased studio and live recordings, and was released on Alive/Naturalsound Records.
Peter Case's songs have been recorded by: James McMurtey, Dave Alvin, Chris Smither, Alejandro Escovedo, Robert Earle Keen, Hayes Carll, The Flaming Groovies, The Goo Goo Dolls, John Prine, Maura O'Connell and many others. On stage he's performed with John Prine, Richard Thompson, Mavis Staples, Tom Petty, R.E.M., Merle Haggard, T Bone Burnett, Gordon Lightfoot, Sir George Martin, Steve Earle, Los Lobos, John Hiatt, Bobby Womack, Jackson Brown, Bonnie Raitt, Dave Alvin, John Doe, Phil Lynott, Stan Ridgway, and many others.
Deep Ellum plays a homespun brand of soulful Americana they like to call bootcut boogie, cosmic country, and roadhouse rock n'roll. Fronted by singer-songwriter David Glasebrook, the group evokes Tony Joe White and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Crazy Horse and The Band, Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson, Stax and Excello.
But what do they sound like? Deep Ellum sounds like the lazy Mississippi slowly rollin' by on a southern summer afternoon; like the locusts singing at the close of a long day; like a stone-cold trucker barreling down the highway at 110 miles per hour; like a lonesome drifter wailing on his harmonica; like car wheels on a gravel road.
Since playing their first show in May 2011, a sold-out show in their hometown of Santa Cruz, Ca, the band has performed regularly, sharing stages with Howlin Rain, Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Moondoggies, Magic Trick, The Romany Rye, The White Buffalo, Sic Alps, The Parson Red Heads, and others. The group's new record "Welcome to Deep Ellum" hit stores in late autumn 2012--available on 12" 45 rpm vinyl and CD, as well as digital downloads.
"From glam to gunk this Ohio trippy man can be found making his home recordings that range from Peter Koppes to Slade. Or just at home resting with his pretty little pup Judy. Nothing stands in Gabriel Fulvimar's way."
