Peach & Quiet ‘This Time’ Premiere

by the partae

Two years ago the duo Peach & Quiet, aka Jonny Miller & Heather Read, reached out to the world from their log home on Canada’s West Coast with their debut album, Just Beyond the Shine. In a few short months, that record topped the folk and roots music charts in North America and had airplay around the world. Reviewers raved, calling it “a basket of surprises’” ‘superb”, “sublime”, “utterly original.” The album received praise across Canada, the U.S., Britain and Europe, and hit four best of the year lists. One of their songs “Flowers Grow” was even translated into Chinese. Just Beyond the Shine was also named BBC Scotland’s Record of the Week.

Now, the duo is set to release their second album Beautiful Thing in early 2023.This collection of 12 original songs has elements of Americana, blues, rock and overtones of 1970s psychedelic rock that came from Laurel Canyon. Beautiful Thing is produced & backed up with electric, pedal steel and slide guitar by Nashville-based string wizard Steve Dawson (Henhouse Studios), and features a line-up of star players : Chris Gestrin (keys), Jeremy Holmes (bass), and Gary Craig (drums).

Heather and Jonny have created a new album of magic together on their new labour-of-love, Beautiful Thing. Their way of announcing that even in these troubled times, there is hope, courage, and gratitude, that life in these times is indeed “a beautiful thing.”


“Inspired by the story of a dear friend, “This Time” is about what happens when life gives us a second chance, and how to meet it with a whole heart. Co-written with Terry Fernihough.”
