As a member of this very fine band I always find it tough to write about The Broken Prayers. It's hard to stick a label on yourself. So, here's another fellows' perspective on The Broken Prayers. An excerpt from a bit of press we received a while back.
The BP's are:
Tony Bello Jr.
Robbert Emmett Bell
When Pete Marshall, lead singer/guitarist for The Broken Prayers, intones “I got a little black heart and it’s full of hate”, it’s mostly sorrow and hurt you hear in his voice. Real sorrow. Visions of Dust Bowl-era depression dance through your head. Dogs howl. This is The Grapes of Wrath on tape—Son House’s “Death Letter” levels of pain. But The Broken Prayers aren’t a complete downer. At times, They are a full-on rockin’ stomp - a drunkin’ good time and Marshall’s plaintive yawp is just one of a hundred different ingredients that give this chili its kick.
