About The Satin Peaches
Royal Oak, MI
The Satin Peaches were formed near the end of 2004. In 2005, they were selected as a finalist for the Detroit News Battle of the Bands and performed their first major live show at the State Theatre in Detroit. This was just the beginning and many other opportunities soon appeared left and right for the young Satin Peaches.
By developing a massive fan base through MySpace and selling out dozens of local shows across Michigan , the Satin Peaches began receiving attention from several Major labels. At that time it became a necessity to find proper management to represent themselves to these labels and they soon reached a deal with Ignition Management in London . The band sparked a bidding war between Island, Mercury, and EMI and flew out to Europe several times during the negotiation process. Near the end of 2005, the Satin Peaches signed a record deal with Island Records.
In 2006, the band began recording songs with Owen Morris, who has previously worked with Oasis, The Walkmen, and The Verve. They ended up recording four tracks at Allaire studios out of New York . After some crazy ass partying and days spent kept trying to stay sane, it was decided they would finish the tracks with Grammy award-winning producer Dave Sardy. They recorded two more tracks and properly mixed the four they did with Owen at Sardy’s own personal studio out of Los Angeles . With six tracks completed, the band named their first EP ‘Morning Maid’.
In between recording sessions for Morning Maid, the Satin Peaches were invited to play several high profile tours and festivals across Europe . They were selected to open for the Go Team on the 2007 NME Freshers Tour. In America , they were invited to play at the 2007 Lollapalooza Festival. They also toured with Robert Randolph while also opening for several national acts including the Duke Spirit and the Sam Roberts Band.
After a year of disagreements between Island Records and the band regarding the release of ‘Morning Maid’, the Satin Peaches decided it would be in their best interests to terminate their contract with Island Records. Soon after this they went on tour with Alejandro Escovedo and learned how to do things the right way... Kind of like what Larry Brown did to the Pistons. Currently they are among negotiations with several American labels that show interest in the 'Morning Maid' EP and the bands future material. They released 'Morning Maid' by themselves in the Detroit area and celebrated the release with a sell out show at the Blind Pig.
In the Spring of 2009 the Satin Peaches successfully toured with the Parlor Mob and returned home to plan their next move. The never-ending chess game of the music industry had continued...
