Parcek Recognized for His 2010 Label Debut From Redstar Entertainment, “The Mathematics of Love”
BOSTON, MA – Redstar Entertainment announces that label artist Peter Parcek has been nominated by The Boston Music Awards as “Blues Artist of the Year.” Parcek’s nomination is the result of the overwhelming critical acclaim for his 2010 national album debut, “The Mathematics of Love.” This is the first Boston Music Awards nomination for the local guitar legend.
2010 will mark the twenty-third year that The Boston Music Awards has honored local artists. The December 5th event is billed as a “rolling party with multiple stages and extended sets from nominated artists.” Peter Parcek and his current band will be one of the acts on hand to perform.
Fans of Peter Parcek can show their support by voting through the BMA’s official website. The Boston Music Awards Voting Academy accounts for two-thirds of the final votes while the public accounts for the remaining one-third. Voting closes at 5 p.m. on Monday, November 29.
Parcek has been delivering jaw-dropping live performances in the greater Boston region for nearly four decades. As a stalwart of the local Boston blues scene, Parcek had this to say of the nomination:
“I am honored to have been nominated for the 2010 Boston Music Awards. The Boston music community possesses a long and rich heritage in the music: as dedicated fans, discerning supporters and endowed with a plethora of world-class Blues musicians. To be nominated here is no small feat; I cherish it.”
“The Mathematics of Love” was produced by Ted Drozdowski and features special guest appearances by legendary keyboardist Al Kooper and guitarist Ronnie Earl. Other guests include bassist Marty Ballou, mandolinist Jimmy Ryan and violinist Dan Kellar.
The music on the album has inspired much praise from national and local critics:
* The Boston Herald awarded the album with an “A-” rating
* The Boston Phoenix called Parcek, “a lyrical, inventive player, equally reverent of economy and excess, dynamics and subtlety, raunch and smooth, sweet soul.”
* Parcek was also featured in the August 2010 edition of Guitar Player Magazine
“We are very happy for Peter and proud to have an artist of his caliber on the label. We encourage his fans to visit the voting site and show their support,” said Judd Marcello of Redstar Entertainment.
Peter and his band, The Peter Parcek 3, are currently playing throughout New England in support of “The Mathematics of Love.” To hear music from that album and see footage of Peter’s live performances, visit the band’s website. You can also follow the band on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook.
