About Me

Many thanks for visiting my website.  I have performed a wide variety of musical styles in my 40 years here in New York State's Capital District, from classical and easy listening to rock and jazz.  

I am a composer and arranger.  My most recent recording, Lights In The Distance, features both instrumental and vocal music and revisits original material I wrote between the seventies and nineties. My first CD, Closer To Home, an 11-song offering including both vocals and instrumentals in solo, duo and four-piece ensemble settings, continues to be popular.  Both recordings can be purchased on CDBaby, at various music stores in the Capital District, or by contacting me or attending one of my appearances.  You can hear samples of some of the tracks on each recording under the 'Listen Here!" tab.

I am currently working on a new recording of original material.

Keep an eye out for a new jazz trio I've put together with my friends bassist Geoff Oehling and drummer John Deuth.

I continue to perform, working in settings ranging from solo to multi-instrumental groups.  My upcoming appearances can be found on this website.  I encourage you to search me out!  Feel free to send me a note.  You can send me one through this site at the "Wanna talk?" tab.

In addition, I am a co-music director at the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church located in Burnt Hills, NY, leading the Chancel Choir.  I feel that church is  where I do my best work and something that I've been called to do.  I invite you to come worship with us.

I wish you good living with the treasures of family and friends and always keep music in your heart.

Pete
