“Though his music is unassuming and acoustic, when armed with a guitar, DeRose (Peasant) makes music that beckons and calls out, as if demanding to be heard. DeRose also has a secret weapon: a voice that seems to expose his very soul.” -NPR
Peasant’s first two official releases came out on Paper Garden Records between 2008 and 2010. In the last two years, his music was featured on CBS, ABC, Showtime, and MTV shows including Bones, The United States of Tara, Kyle XY and Private Practice as well as being used by Apple, Blackberry, and Starbucks. The early positive response to Peasant’s work was not limited to licensing. He toured Europe and the US extensively, opening for Cursive, Deer Tick, Albert Hammond Jr., Steve Earle, Javelin, Rocky Votolato, Horse Feathers and a number of other great artists.
Enter 2011: Peasant has been working in the studio with other talented musicians for the first time, and the live show is evolving to feature those same people on stage. The new songs feature Michael Cammarata and Farzad Houshiarnejad of the band Drink Up Buttercup playing keys and drums.
