Peter Asher & Company
starring Peter Asher, Albert Lee , Kate Taylor, and Leland Sklar
Steve Holley, Bill Cinque, Cara Lee, and Jeff Alan Ross
Peter Asher returns to the road this summer with a fine ensemble well stocked with many of his musical cohorts! Peter was one half of the British Invasion duo Peter & Gordon, and was twice named the Grammy Winner as Producer of the Year for his work with of Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor. Today the former A & R Director for the Beatles' Apple Records may be equally well known as the host of "From Me To You" on SiriusXM's The Beatles Channel. He'll perform hits from his history including gems such as "Lady Godiva", "I Go To Pieces" and "A World Without Love" from the Peter & Gordon era.
Peter's stage event also stars the delightful Kate Taylor, whose debut album, "Sister Kate" wasproduced by Mr. Asher and released 50 years ago. This gathering of talent helps Kate celebrate that anniversary, as well as the impending release of a new Kate Taylor album, "Why Wait", which Peter produced, and on which he, Leland and Albert all played. By the end of July, we'll no doubt be hearing the album's first single, "Good Day Sunshine" on Peter's radio program and elsewhere on the Beatles Channel!
The superb British guitar legend Albert Lee (Everly Brothers, Eric Clapton Band) also stars, and he'll no doubt "Tear It Up" with his own brand of roots-laced guitar magic. Iconic bassist Leland Sklar (James Taylor Band, Phil Collins, everyone else) joins in a starring role as well; and you'll see why he could dare to call his new book "Everybody Loves Me". If you've seen the book, you understand.
Acoustic guitarist and vocalist Bill Cinque (Neil Diamond Band), vocalist Cara Lee (Bill Medley), drummerSteve Holley (Paul McCartney and Wings), and Jeff Alan Ross (ex-Badfinger) will step into featured roles as well, on keys-guitars-vocals.
