7 Horses started out as an acoustic act comprised of Joanne Filips and Phil “The General” Russo, since they started playing local haunts and venues Buddy Braile has come on board so his beat can soar to the dizzy heights that are the 7 Horses. The band came onto the scene as an Alternative Acoustic act. Their inspiring blend of diverse styles combined with a firing selection of lyrics and music can take you through the emotions of life and love through their unique groove. Joanne is a prolific songwriter who sings lead vocals and plays acoustic guitar. Phil plays lead, rhythm, and acoustic guitar as well as sings background vocals.
The music is a blend of unique chord voicing, and signature rhythmic patterns, which lead to a guitar exploration of its very own. Their sound has warm Blues undertones, sometimes even a beautiful darkness that is captivating and leaves you doing a little soul searching with the help of this emotive soundscape. The VH-1 Song of the Year Contest has put them on the list of suggested artists to listen to, and their song ‘Scattered’ was a runner-up in the contest. They are currently performing in the tri-state area, and their CD can be heard on many Internet radio stations.
7 Horses are a band that plays real music, music that has stayed with us for decades – they ply a craft that is more and more difficult to seek out in these days of pre-looped and sampled offerings. It has a rawness and purity that sounds as good now as it will do in another 10 years.
7 Horses is a Blue Pie Records USA artist for and is published by Blue Pie Publishing USA (ASCAP).
