Greg Sover Band
Jubilee is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Songs of a Renegade, Sover’s 2016 debut album, which put him on the map and announced that he is one of the top emerging blues artists in Philadelphia and beyond.

To celebrate, the Greg Sover Band competed at the International Blues Chal- lenge in Memphis in January, making it into the semifinals out of 240 bands, and showing everyone in attendance that the band from up North in Philly sure knows how to play the blues.

Jubilee has been getting airplay in his hometown of Philadelphia at WXPN on Jonny Meister's Blues Show, and on over 90 blues programs nationally and in- ternationally. The EP debuted at #20 in the Living Blues monthly charts, which serves as the Bible for Blues programming. Jubilee peaked at #2 in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Album Chart. Greg also had three songs from Jubilee in The Roots Music Report's Top 50 Blues Rock Song Chart: “Emotional” at #1, “As the Years Go Passing By” at #23 and “Jubilee” at #38. Jubilee is once again produced by Greg Sover Band bassist Garry Lee along with Sover. Sover’s band of Philly heavyweights with extensive resumes also includes guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling. The three are best known as Deb Callahan’s solid backing band.

And the great reviews for Jubilee have begun:

Living Blues Magazine raves this month.

"Jubilee solidifies Sover's work as a guitarist, allowing him to showcase a variety of different styles. Sover's versatility reveals his musical genius."

The Peace Creeps
The Peace Creeps
The Peace Creeps is the current musical project featuring former A’s captivating frontman Richard Bush. Richard and his A’s were the darlings of Philly in the ‘70s and early ‘80s and had the hits “After Last Night” and “A Woman’s Got The Power”, which was later recorded by both Clarence Clemons and Jennifer Holliday. They released two albums on Arista Records and toured nationally, but they disbanded due to disputes with their record company. After that Bush had a few other bands and then took a long hiatus to write and record. Finally, along with guitarist John Marchiano, bassist Roy Fisher and drummer Jeff Pancoast, The Peace Creeps were born. Bush and song writing partner, AJay McLaughlin’s clever lyricism, along with their Elvis Costello–like wit, Faces–like looseness and the pop sensibilities of the Beatles are reasons for their appeal. Their second album, the backward looking/forward sounding, “Time Machine” is available at CD Baby.
