7 Horses started out as an alternative acoustic act comprised of Joanne Filips and Phil “The General” Russo. Ever since they started playing local haunts and venues, Buddy Braile has also come on board, so his beats can soar to the dizzying heights that are the 7 Horses! They are a NY based group who lost their home and all their belongings in Hurricane Sandy. They have cited this tragedy as an inspiration, and have dedicated some of their work to the city they call home and the brave people who worked in the arduous process of recovering the shore. The 7 Horses’ inspiring blend of diverse styles, combined with a firing selection of lyrics and music can effortlessly 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. While Buddy, of course, smashes out the beats!
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 recommended them via the list of suggested artists to listen to, and their song ‘Scattered’ was a runner-up in the contest! This particular CD can be heard on many Internet radio stations, and of course their catalogue is available for streaming or purchase online via all major services and online retailers.
7 Horses are a band that plays real music, music that has stayed with us for decades – they play 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).
