FROM MORGAN CREEK GRILL
PRESENTED BY RENE RUSSELL
BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE MUSIC INITIATIVE AND MORGAN CREEK GRILL
Pete Ballou and Becca Bessinger are a fun duo who make up the self-described "cow-pop" band Satellite Rodeo. "Cow-Pop," they explain, is alternative-country pop; a standard pop structure with a definite country accent, meaning lots of harmonies and plenty of story telling. Becca and Pete began working together 8 months ago when they initially pooled their songs. Ever since then they have been writing together.
Becca explains that she used to write her songs based more on personal experiences, but for a while now has evolved into creating stories influenced by her own emotions and interests. Pete expands upon that—it's very important for lyrics to be authentic, he points out. He took a number of poetry classes with the poet James Dicken and he still hears his teacher calling b.s. on some of the papers he wrote. Both agree that lyric must come from the heart, which you can't help but agree with when you hear their performance of "I'll Make You Breathe."
They recently recorded 2 songs at Ocean Industries and will be continuing to release 2-3 songs at a time electronically.
