The Peachtree is a Latin Rock and Hip-Hop band born in Aurora, IL during the late winter of 2008. Not trying to fulfill any particular genre, but instead creating their own sound, The Peachtree has managed to reach a large number of fans that are just as eclectic as their own sound.
Jesus Diaz (JustOne) and Carlos Jacobo (Most the Jackal), the band’s founders and vocalists, had an idea to combine the basic rhythms of traditional rock with their own Hip-Hop sound. This combination created a unique sound that doesn't fit any traditional genre, but has filled an area of long awaited need.
The premier album, “Did You Hear What I Said” was released in May of 2010, its sound was heavily influenced by, Rage Against the Machine, Ozomatli, Goldfinger, Eric B and Rakim, Common, NOFX, Reel Big Fish, 311, Rancid, Atmosphere, De La Soul and others.
After their successful release of the “Did You Hear What I Said” EP, The Peachtree wanted to expand its sound and include more Latin influences. The Peachtree’s new direction has led them to create a fun, captivating and rhythmically enjoyable album titled, EL Segundo which delivers engaging story lines and amazing music to compliment it.
