Biography
-2009-

“How this guy stayed under the radar for as long as he has is a real head-scratcher... A powerhouse singer with blues instincts increasingly rare these days, the 70-something Pearson shouts and scorches with energy rarely found in artists half his age.”
– www.jazz-blues.com

“Phoenix, Arizona based blues shouter Big Pete Pearson has been thrilling blues audiences in his hometowm, and Europe, for over 50 years.”
– Mick Rainsford, Blues in Britain

Born in Jamaica in 1936, Big Pete Pearson relocated to Texas with his parents as a child. He began his musical career in the juke joints of Austin’s East side, playing bass alongside the likes of T.D. Bell, Blues Boy Hubbard, and Pete’s younger cousin, W.C. Clark. After playing a few gigs in Phoenix, Arizona in the late 50’s, Pete relocated there and quickly became the de facto King of the Arizona blues scene. Big Pete remained a pretty well-kept local secret until his 2007 release, I’m Here Baby on Blue Witch Records, which introduced Pete to the worldwide blues community as a first-class Blues shouter. Finger In Your Eye, released by Southwest Musical Arts Foundation Records through the VizzTone label group, promises to solidify his stature as a veteran master of the blues.

By now, Big Pete Pearson’s powerhouse vocals and larger-than-life stage persona have delighted audiences around the world. Produced by Bob Corritore, Finger In Your Eye is Pete’s first all-original blues album, featuring 10 of his own compositions. Big Pete is nimbly backed on this CD by his touring band, the Rhythm Room Allstars: Bob Corritore (harp), Chris James (guitar), Patrick Rynn (bass), and Brian Fahey (drums). As usual, Pete has attracted a bevy of very special guests, including Pinetop Perkins, Duke Robillard, Henry Gray, Billy Flynn, Doug James, and Eddie Taylor, Jr.
