|Biography: THE BORIS PEACH BAND then BLUEBEARD It started in High School - where else? It all began with Boris (Barry) the talented singer/songwriter/instrumentalist. Boris Peach played mostly tribute songs from such great bands as Jethro Tull, Ten Years After, Allman Bros. Band and more - as well as some original material. Barry Leech and Daniel Bogan formed the nucleus of Boris Peach. Little did they know they would still be making music together three decades later... BLUEBEARD Bluebeard was formed in 1972. The founding members are the same today. The band did not play tribute songs except as encore material. Bob Campbell - an incredible keyboard player - joined for a brief time (1977 - 1979) and helped shape the unique ''symphonic'' rock sound of that period. The band also played as a four piece called Receiver and a three piece called Catwalk until they disbanded in 1985 and went their seperate ways...until the year 2001 - when ''it happened all over again''.In 2006 BLUEBEARD released their new album titled: Deluxe with reverb, available now on itunes and other on-line retailers.|

Bluebeard has been around for nearly 30 years and was a mainstay of the Southern California club scene in the 70s and 80s, playing dates with everyone from Van Halen to The Motels to Steppenwolf. They recently played a sold out appearance at L.A.s Canyon Club, sharing a bill with Blue ?yster Cult. Their last full-length album, Bad Dream,was released in 1978 and is a treasured collectors item among rock connoisseurs, with asking prices up to $500 per copy on on-line auction sites. Bluebeard received widespread critical acclaim in the U.S. (from the likes of Billboard Magazine, Cash Box, BAM and Radio Report), and was an underground favorite in Japan and Europe. The tragic death in 2004 of Robert Barry Leech, the bands original lead singer and creative force, led the remaining members to reunite in honor of his memory with a singular focus to once and for all bring their brand of rock & roll to the world. Deluxe With Reverbincludes a tribute to the past via a rockinduet of The Rolling Stones classic Paint It Black,between Leech and new frontman Ellington Erin.

A special edition CD, featuring three bonus tracks, is available for sale at Amazon.com. We intend to re-connect with Bluebeards core audience worldwide and introduce them to new fans via this new album,said JP Fillet, Shelter From the Storms vice president of label operations. Judging from the reaction of the standing-room-only all ages audience at their recent Canyon Club show, Bluebeards music has strong across-the-board appeal. About Bluebeard Four of the original members of Bluebeard have been playing music together since the late 70's. Bluebeard was originally formed by Barry Leech, Vincent Bitetti, Vincent Thomas-Penny, Gayle Hart and Danny Bogan. Producer and former Illinois-based One-Eyed Jacks bassist and keyboardist Barry Fasman was recruited for co-production duties, as well as keyboards and vocals. Former Siddhartha front man Elington Erin completed the lineup in 2005. The music of Bluebeard has been described as having elements of hard rock, art rock, and progressive rock. Here at Shelter, we have officially dubbed it original classic rock. The music has a late 70's vibe with 80's, 90's and contemporary rock textures and influences. Promotional CDs for radio and press are available on an as needed basis from the company and radio stations signed up to Airplay Direct can access high quality, airplay ready songs at their website at airplay direct: Bluebeard.
