NEW ALBUM, "Outlet", available 6.7.11 on all download sites and www.viperrecords.com!
Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter P.J. Pacifico has released his new, eagerly awaited sophomore effort, “Always & Everywhere”, now available in stores and online. Filled with P.J.’s trademark brand of warm, inviting, hook-filled songs, the themes of “Always & Everywhere” take in everything from love and survival to redemption and recovery.
Following the success of his 2005 solo debut (the haunting “Well I’ll Be”), P.J. took to the road for a series of solo and full band dates; both as a headliner and as an opening act for several certified legends. The “Almost There-EP” and the forthcoming “Always & Everywhere” were written and recorded in between those dates, and the resulting material was subsequently, repeatedly road-tested. Doing so has given these new songs and performances tangible, considerable depth. The 14 track album of new material is entirely self-penned, with three exceptions. First, a cover of “This Street,” a song by ‘80s NYC-area indie legends, The Tracks, written by Steve Ferentzy (co-producer of “Well I’ll Be”). Next, "I Can't Say No"; a song written by P.J.'s best friend, Craig Newman. And lastly, an acoustic, ukulele based cover of The Beatles', "I Want To Hold Your Hand", which is getting great airplay on Sirius/XM Radio's The Coffeehouse.
With the exception of the track “The Answer,” all but one of the six songs that comprise the “Almost There-EP” are on “Almost & Everywhere.” The leadoff single, “Jackbone,” features an appearance by The Samples’ Sean Kelly on background vocals, and was added into rotation on many AAA/Americana radio stations across the country. P.J.'s sound has been described as “a jam session between James Taylor and Matthew Sweet,” with some classic rock influences thrown in for good measure. His songs feel immediately familiar and comfortable; straight from the heart and sure to get stuck in your head.
P.J. has shared the stage with Crosby, Stills & Nash, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sugarland, Hank Williams Jr., Levon Helm, Leon Russell, Bob Weir & Ratdog, The Wailers, The Low Anthem, Donavon Frankenreiter, Dar Williams, Guster, moe., Ryan Shaw, and Sean Kelly of The Samples.
