Peaches Staten has
been dazzling audiences at BLUE CHICAGO
since 2010. She is a world-class
entertainer who is known for spreading the joy of blues. One week she is in
Europe, the next in South America, back to the states then off again at the
drop of an e-mail to some corner of the world.
Peaches was born in Doddsville, MS, but grew
up in the thriving Chicago Blues scene and was raised on gospel, blues and
soul. Her stepfather was a disc
jockey for several of Chicago’s swank Westside clubs and her mother was a member
of a social club that hosted parties for well-known blues musicians.
She began her professional career in a zydeco band and
an Afro Brazilian Samba ensemble and has gone on to work with the best that the
Blues scene has to offer.
She’s a little bit of Tina, Etta and Koko all in one. Her gutsy, growling and energetic show has made her one of
the foremost headliners on the Chicago blues scene.
Staten has shared the stage and recorded with some of the best in the
business such as Katie Webster, C.J. Chernier, Johnny B. Moore, the late Buddy
Scott, Billy Branch, Carl Weathersby and others. Early in her career she was featured in Women in Blues
Revues with Chicago veterans Bonnie Lee and Karen Carroll.
Her untamed energy
electrifies the audience never failing to get them on their feet. She is a talented performer who
possesses an impeccable rhythmic and musical style.
