Peter Mulvey & Paul Cebar
Peter Mulvey bio:
SILVER LADDER is an auditory shot in the arm from veteran touring songwriter Peter Mulvey. Produced by the indomitable Chuck Prophet, it is a lean, muscular collection of tightly constructed songs, leavening Mulvey's tendency toward ruminative and yearning acoustic songs with a dose of sharp-witted, punchy rock and roll.
After a turbulent stretch in his personal life left him at sea, Mulvey decided to write his way out of it: "I've been through it. I bet you have too," he said, "but there are times in life when you turn a corner and suddenly everything is simple: let's make some songs, people! Let's play!" Committing to writing one song a week relieved him of the precious, self-involved artist's question, What Do I Have To Say? The songs came flooding out over the weeks and months, and within a year he had more than enough for a new record.
Paul Cebar bio:
Taking cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana (and his native Midwest,), the streets (and 45's) of New Orleans, touring African and Caribbean combos and the soul, funk & blues of his youth coupled with early , teeth-cutting experience in the verbal hotbeds of the coffeehouse scene, Paul Cebar is a masterful synthesist of rhythmic culture.
Paul cut his teeth musically in the coffeehouse folk scene of the mid-'70s in Milwaukee. First paying gigs took place in late '76 with an emphasis on solo recasting of small combo jump-blues and other early R&B. Upon graduation from New College in Sarasota, Florida, with a thesis addressing rhythm & blues varities featuring a hearty emphasis on Louis Jordan and Buddy Johnson, Cebar dedicated himself to trodding the boards in earnest and spent substantial amounts of time testing the waters out New York way while exploring band dynamics with a soul and New Orleans-minded crew called the R&B Cadets back home.
Different bands followed, including the long-running Paul Cebar & The Milwaukeeans. Paul's current band is called Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound.
Paul will be playing this benefit solo with Peter.
