Alice Peacock to Present
Free Concerts at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  March 4, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — Alice Peacock will present two free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire March 12-13. The singer-songwriter will begin her shows at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday in The Cabin, Davies Center.

For Peacock, the key to creating great music is being real and truthful. “If you write from an honest place, good things will happen,” she says. She won a major-label recording contract on the strength of “Real Day,” her self-released debut album which Amazon.com ranked as one of the Ten Best Emerging Artist CDs of 1999.

“Lyrically, Peacock delivers the goods on the usual subject matter — love, heartbreak, and personal triumph — but with a sincerity and originality that is rare and refreshing,” wrote reviewer Michael Wells.

Her CD “Alice Peacock” (2002) features friends she has made over the course of the recent past, including Indigo Girl Emily Saliers, Aware/Columbia labelmate John Mayer, and new folk icon John Gorka. She has been compared by critics to such luminaries as Joni Mitchell, Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin and Rickie Lee Jones, and reflects the influence of rockers like Neil Young and Tom Petty.

The show is open to all ages. Pop, domestic and imported beer, wine coolers and popcorn will be sold; proof of age is required for alcohol purchases.

The Cabin program is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
