ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peter Parcek Short Biography

"A guitarist and all-around musician who's in a league in a game of his own."
-Tom Clarke, Hittin' the Note

" Not a moment of this CD is less than jaw-dropping...and dripping with blown-out inventiveness" -Mark S. Tucker, Fame Magazine


"Peter Parcek has got the blues, and thank goodness for it...a modern sound with few rivals." -Christopher Llewellyn Adam, Cashbox


"You're as bad as Eric Clapton," Buddy Guy once told him. "And I know Eric Clapton."

Peter Parcek's lightning-strike guitar playing has been electrifying audiences in America and abroad for years.
Now Peter Parcek is back with a new record brimming with compelling original blues and select covers by the likes of Peter Green, Blind Lemon Jefferson & Don Nix.
"Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" was recorded in Nashville, TN with
producer/drummer Marco Giovino (Robert Plant, Buddy Miller, Tom Jones) and
features a phenomenal band including Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi AllStars),
Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), Spooner Oldham (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Aretha),
Dennis Crouch (T-Bone Burnett, Diana Krall), Dominic John Davis (Jack White) plus a number
of other luminaries.

Parcek's credits include touring & recording w/ legendary keyboardist Pinetop Perkins
(Peter appears on Mr. Perkins' "On Top") and as a sideman with great bluesman like Hubert Sumlin.
He was nominated by the Blues Foundation for "The Mathematics of Love" his previous full length release. The cd earned Parcek a much-deserved Blues Music Award nomination for Best New Artist Debut. Parcek is also the 2013 New England Music Awards Blues Artist of the Year & the Blues Audience Magazine's 2012 Guitarist of the Year in addition to multiple nominations by the Boston Music Awards.

Parcek's live shows & recordings are powered by his daring, incendiary, and soulful electric guitar and a singing style that, like his original songs, fuses the vitality of today with echoes of the Delta, mountains and prairies where the greatest American music was born.

The heart of Peter's playing, singing & writing is rooted in the Blues, both ancient & modern.
Parcek possesses an unparalleled ability to blend influences that embrace roots, folk, country, rockabilly, surf, jazz and gypsy music into his own distinctly original hybrid.
And overall his fluid, expressive playing simply leaves jaws dropped to the ground.

Parcek's musical story, however, begins on the stages of '60s London, where his early bands were contemporaries of the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, and groups featuring Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Peter Green.

The young guitarist watched and learned well, finding a path that's led him through an evolution all his own. It's taken him through smoky dives where he's played for a dozen patrons and onto huge stages where he's played for 100,000. And over the years Parcek's opened for a smorgasbord of prestigious artists including the Grateful Dead, Sheryl Crow, Susan Tedeschi, the Holmes Brothers, Koko Taylor, Robben Ford, Son Seals, Johnny Copeland, Charlie Musselwhite, Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard, Roomful of Blues and many, many more.

Today Parcek is possessed of the artistry and originality to become a legend in his own right.
