"More Music Than Meets the Eye
For 100+ performances a year Pairadeux is in disguise as a "not so mild mannered" Rock Duo, entertaining and delighting fans with their unique versions of beloved rock songs and hot original songs.
Pairadeux - One man, one woman, one unparalleled musical experience.
There are cover bands, there are acoustic ensembles, there are electronica groups—and then there’s Pairadeux, the Denver duo that is all of the above, topped by a sweet coating of Colorado soul. With a sizzling mixture of various musical styles, unique cover renditions, skillful improvisation, high energy and raucous wit, these two exhibit a sound and presence like no other.
A pair of friends sharing their love of rock & roll’s rich tradition with all who hear; such has always been the essence of Pairadeux. Those convictions speak to people of all ages, bringing younger audiences into classic rock and older listeners into newer music.
In live performance, Pairadeux specializes in wide, dynamic sound from a minimalist operation. Miss Elizabeth’s voice is compared by many to Janis Joplin and Ann Wilson (among other lady greats). Neil’s acoustic guitar mastery, with its electric infusion, along with live loop sampling and multi-effects synthesizers for both guitar and vocals, has become Pairadeux’s legacy, and a force with which to be reckoned. Their cover-tune renditions have earned their own reputation as consistently fresh, stirring, unique and, more often than not, better than the original compositions.
This talent is evident more than anywhere in Pairadeux’s latest exciting release, Pairadeux Under Cover, Part Deux. On this double-album, Neil and Miss Elizabeth have effectively blended all of their strengths into one. Disc One features their acclaimed interpretations of cover songs, as studio cuts and live recordings. Disc Two graces fans with some of their captivating original music. Featuring fan-favorite covers like “Take Me to the River”, “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “Rhiannon”, as well as sultry original compositions like “Til I Surrender” and the uplifting “Perception”, Pairadeux Under Cover, Part Deux is their most auspicious work to date.
Pairadeux’s thrilling stage display and distinctive sound has entertained thousands across the USA and around the world. With three albums, hundreds of gigs, thousands of sales, and some of the most diverse and cross-generational audience loyalty ever seen in the west, Neil and Miss Elizabeth have planted their flag—and the masses are rallying!
