Album Notes
Shiloh’s Cup

The Music

Heavy, groove-oriented rock with Metallica-esque vocals, drumming from Led Zeppelin to the Meters and Southern funk, tightly wrapped with a strong bass pocket. Layers and layers of supreme guitar orchestration, lush undercurrents of Deep Purple-colored organ, passionate gypsy violin, R&B horns including screaming sax, and gorgeous gospel-esque background vocals. Production is built to lift you up with emotion-drenched crescendos all played to the max from the heart. Passionate, smokin’ and fired up.

The Band

Shiloh’s Cup is Ted Green, Wayne Peet and Elias Toscano, with inspired contributions by Ken Lasaine, Scarlet Rivera, Phylliss Bailey Brooks, Roxanne Mayweather, Michael Acosta and Ellington Peet.

These are world-class musicians who have played, produced and composed with (and for) a compendium of top artists, from jazz, rock, funk, hip-hop and gospel to classical, theatre, and film. They are able to provide creatively inspired, expressive art - on demand. They are also a lot of fun: innovators who, other than their musicianship, don’t take themselves too seriously, which accounts for the chemistry in this music. The line up was a truly inspired choice. (Thanks, Wayne!) Let the music speak for itself…


Ted Green – Lead and background vocals, electric guitar

Ted Green is one of those guys who was born to be a lead singer and front man. Numerous bands and gigs have been graced by his synth, bass, guitar and unique vocals. Ted is a true rocker, having played progressive and power rock devotedly for years in the US and Europe. He even formed the first official U.S. Air Force rock band while serving in the military. The man eats and sleeps rock. Ted is a powerhouse.

His credits include the power trios Lebanon out of Texas and The Cause in LA. In ’92, he played “Superfest” with Christian rock group Stratia. Ted is a long time staple in the Christian Music scene.


Wayne Peet – Acoustic and electric piano, organ, keyboard bass, M-Tron, synthesizer, samples, looping and sequencing, kalimba, trombone, “trompet”, electronic effects

Wayne Peet is a pianist, organist, keyboardist and composer whose unique style has drawn international acclaim. He is active as an arranger, accompanist and musical director for a number of Los Angeles singers in styles from blues to opera. Wayne composes original music that lands in a funk/rock/jazz zone. He is a true musical visionary that took this music where it needed to go. That’s why he was picked to be the producer and musical director for Shiloh’s Cup. Sometimes Wayne even plays trombone once he figures out where we hid it.

Wayne’s numerous credits include acclaimed solo recordings and innovative jazz performances with Vinny Golia, Nels Cline, and Bill Barrett. He has also composed music for film scores such as “Another America” (documentary), “Bull Durham” and “Blaze”.

“When Wayne Peet gigs … you can expect both spontaneity and ferocious, tough playing defined by cutting rhythms and intricate harmonies.
-Titus Levi, “Keyboard Magazine”


Elias Toscano – Drums, congas, djembe, and drum samples

Elias Toscano is a virtuoso drummer and percussionist, as well as a jazz historian. Besides drumming, his talents extend to production, composition, arranging and engineering in numerous studio sessions in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. He is a prolific lyricist and diverse composer, overflowing with imaginative ideas. Elias is the executive producer for Shiloh’s Cup and it was his vision initially, ultimately collaborating with Green and Peet. He is either very, very creative or very, very crazy.

Elias' credits include performances with legendary piano giant Horace Tapscott, organ genius Ed Kelly, Steve Grossman (Miles Davis Quintet), and Alex Dore (Sly Stone, Robin Trower). He was the favorite drummer of the late, great bassist, Art Davis (John Coltrane). Elias was also a staff percussionist with CBS records.


Ken Lasaine – Electric and acoustic guitar

Ken Lasaine has soul. He is also a master of funk, blues, rock and jazz guitar. Ken performs with his own trio and does a lot of studio work around Los Angeles. His professional credits, from performance and recording to film and TV, illustrate his virtuosity. Ken is a lyrical acoustic player and can be a real shredder. He’s also a total professional and really good guy; Shiloh’s Cup can’t believe their good fortune in getting him on the CD.

Ken’s extensive credits include Bo Diddley, No Doubt, and Gap Band, among many others.


Scarlet Rivera – Violin

Scarlet Rivera is one of the world’s most prominent and eclectic violinists. She is known for the artistry of her contributions to the recordings and performances of some of the most influential musicians of our time. Scarlet is also a composer and performer in her own right and her solo works show her to be one of today’s most passionate and intelligent violinists. Scarlet’s rich, haunting tones add a lush, vivid element that completes the atmosphere of “Wounded”.

Credits include Bob Dylan, Indigo Girls, Tracy Chapman and a catalog of original instrumental music.


Phylliss Bailey Brooks – Background vocals

Phylliss Bailey Brooks is an accomplished singer, actress, vocal director/arranger, and performance coach who has toured the world from Bangkok to Paris. She has numerous stage and television credits, whether center stage or behind the scenes. Phylliss also serves as youth minister of music at her church, and directs the Los Angeles-based GTF children's choir. Phylliss says that her biggest honor of all is being a child of The King. Shiloh’s Cup is privileged to add Phylliss’ virtuoso talent to their project.

Credits include TV hits such as “In Living Color” and “MADtv”. Phylliss was also an original cast member of the Broadway hit "Jelly's Last Jam”.


Roxanne Mayweather – Background vocals

Roxanne Mayweather began her career as an actress/singer working extensively in the Los Angeles theatre scene developing new original musicals. She has since worked on many voice-overs for television and films and has numerous on-camera credits as well. Roxanne has had the privilege to record her distinctive vocals on demos for many new artists, as well as recording an album with legendary jazz singer Anita O’Day. Roxanne’s unique talent is evident by all that her stellar vocal chops add to “Wounded”.

Film and television credits include “House Party”, “Lackawanna Blues” and “Cheers”. Roxanne was also a featured singing “Keenette” on the “Kenan Ivory Wayans Show”.


Michael Acosta – tenor saxophone

Michael Acosta is as good as they get – a highly in-demand featured saxophonist and arranger. He is known for his ability to deliver performances that nail the tunes: power rock, R&B, funk, blues, jazz - whatever is called for, on demand. His emotion-drenched solos can be counted on to raise the roof. When Shiloh needed a tenor player to deliver some special stylings, Mike was the only guy we wanted.

Michael’s extensive credits include recordings with Brian Setzer, Tierra, and Keiko Matsui, among many others.


Ellington Peet – cowbell, shaker, and tambourine

At the age of 12, Ellington Peet already has a number of recording and performance credits as a drummer and percussionist. He is the son of Wayne Peet, having inherited his father’s prodigious talent. We are happy to have Ellington contribute to Shiloh’s Cup and expect great things from him.

Ellington's credits include drums and percussion with The Palms Middle School Concert & Jazz Band and regular performances at his church service.

Lyrics (a sample)

Lion of Judah

My life is poured out of me as my bones slip from their joints
My heartbeat like a drum made of melting candle wax
My thirst is greater than a man can bear
I’m dry as desert sand; I’ve become the dust of death.

I’m a man of sorrow and acquainted with grief
I bore your sins, you hungry wolves, despite your disbelief.
I took your place, I cleared your name, I went to the grave and I took your sin
Went to the grave, where you should have been.

These are your bloody nails through my hands and through my feet.
Your soldiers took me and hung me on a tree.
They gambled for my robe, and they spit on me.
I died naked so that you could be free.

I’m a man of sorrow and acquainted with grief
I bore your sins you hungry wolves, despite your disbelief.
I took your place, I cleared your name, I went to the grave and I took your sin
Went to the grave, where you should have been.

My love was so strong
Death couldn’t hold Me long
I broke out, you see
To keep you close to me.

Shiloh’s Cup

Isaac was Abraham’s son, his mother’s bedtime laughter
Blessed son of a seventh son, shout it from the rafters
But he almost died for love, ‘cept for a bit of luck
In the end it was Shiloh that drank that bloody cup.
Shiloh had the keys to the kingdom of heaven,
His promises were given to the chosen people
The sons of Israel, one come eleven
His sign rising above on every church steeple.

Shiloh was hung on a tree where he died only to live.
That bloody cup he drained it without fear.
The greatest love was His to give
Paid your way to heaven with His dying and His tears.

Shiloh came down from eternity up above
He was the messenger of God’s most excellent love,
Almighty God made us, you and me,
God almighty made things good,
Shiloh made us free.
