Title track from Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach’s debut album: ‘Waves Rise From Quiet Water”.
“A ‘Thank You’ Won’t Pay The Fiddler”- written by Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach
The album was recorded in May 2016, Capturing their essential fiddle/piano combination, with a number of additions: Tenor guitar, accordion, fender rhodes and vocals. Making full use of the range of instruments at their disposal, they built upon this intrinsic fiddle/piano combination, enhancing it whilst not obscuring the fact of it’s place at the core of what they do.
Recorded by Joseph Peach at 18 Clifford Street
Mixed and Mastered by Mattie Foulds at Caribou Recording
Charlie Grey: Fiddle, Tenor Guitar, Vocals
Joseph Peach: Piano, Fender Rhodes, Accordion
Kim Carnie: Additional vocals
They have a background at the heart of some of Scotland’s native musical traditions, but Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach’s music is as much based on self-penned material as it is informed by this upbringing.
A captivating fiddle style supported by sensitive pianism isn’t big, loud, in-your-face music, but something to be relaxed in to. It’s a journey, rising and falling with total spontaneity.
They play with a collective voice, the product of hundreds of gigs, thousands of miles travelled and innumerable hours of music played together. From a largely mellow base, the music rises and falls, slowly building to moments of intensity, breaking away in to powerful improvisation.
