Beautiful Thing, the new album by acclaimed Canadian roots duo Peach & Quiet, is scheduled for release on January 20, 2023.
Two years ago the duo Peach & Quiet, aka Jonny Miller & Heather Read, reached out to the world from their log home on Canada’s West Coast with their debut album, Just Beyond the Shine. In a few short months, that record topped the folk and roots music charts in North America and had airplay around the world. Reviewers raved, calling it “a basket of surprises’” ‘superb”, “sublime”, and “utterly original”. The album received praise across Canada, the U.S., Britain and Europe, and hit four best of the year lists. One of their songs, ‘Flowers Grow’, was even translated into Chinese. Just Beyond the Shine was also named Featured Album of the Week on BBC Radio Scotland’s Iain Anderson Show.
Now, the duo is set to release their second album Beautiful Thing. This collection of 12 original songs has elements of Americana, blues, rock and overtones of 1970s psychedelic rock that came from Laurel Canyon. Beautiful Thing is produced & backed up with electric, pedal steel and slide guitar by Nashville-based string wizard Steve Dawson (Henhouse Studios) and features a line-up of star players - Chris Gestrin (keys), Jeremy Holmes (bass), and Gary Craig (drums).
Prior to the album’s release, Peach & Quiet will release a series of singles and videos from the album, with ‘Horse & Saddle’ and an accompanying live video scheduled for November 17, followed by ‘This Time’ on November 28, again with a live video, then on January 4, ‘Calgary Skyline’.
A full production video for the title track, ‘Beautiful Thing’ will drop on January 20, the album’s release day.
