The follow up to the critically acclaimed and fan favorite "Shady Retreat", "Bound for Glory" is a collection of deep and diverse tracks that reveal new layers in this prolific artist.
Along with Spin Magazine, Daytrotter, CMJ and others, NPR raves, “when armed with a guitar, DeRose makes music that beckons and calls out, as if demanding to be heard. DeRose also has a secret weapon: a voice that seems to expose his very soul.” Magnet Magazine adds “DeRose’s vocals float above acoustic guitar melodies, evoking the lyrical eloquence and delicate arrangements of Rogue Wave and the late Elliot Smith.”
"Bound for Glory’s" sharp observations and thought-provoking lyrics are made addictive when mixed with its easy, lush, and dreamy instrumentation. From the album’s gentle hypnotic opener “Bound For Glory,” to the solo confession of “Doesn’t Mean,” along with the joyful spring of “The Flask” and the sensual chugging of “Girls,” "Bound For Glory" will captivate the listener and hold their attention from beginning to end.
Brooklyn Vegan perfectly states “It’s a good feeling to come across an artist you instantly like, sort of by accident. That happened to me with Peasant a few weeks ago when I randomly selected his CD.”
DeRose, now 25, has been actively releasing records for the last four years and has toured extensively with the likes of Cursive, Deer Tick, Albert Hammond Jr. and Steve Earle.
