To PETER MULVEY, there is no such thing as a straight and narrow path. At least, not one that he has any interest in taking.
A live-wire on any stage, Peter Mulvey is an acoustic singer/songwriter/guitarist who, in fact, defies this categorization. His ferocious guitar playing whisks him through more tunings than he has fingers in the course of an evening, as he winds his way from full-throated rockers to deceptively plain-spoken musings. Whether solo or with longtime musical collaborator David “Goody” Goodrich at his side (coaxing unearthly sounds out of electric guitars and mandolins), Mulvey is someone who just naturally commands a stage:
“Peter Mulvey is one of the most accomplished guitarists you’re ever likely to hear… utterly original… it is nigh on impossible to explain him to the uninitiated… his intelligent and sometimes complex songs engage both hemispheres of the listener’s brain… one of the finest, most complete entertainers… stunning.” – THE IRISH EXAMINER
“The cream of the crop sings with a clarity reserved for the likes of legends.”
“Peter Mulvey is all substance, which is his style.”
Peter will have a new record almost in hand, “Are You Listening?”, produced by Ani DiFranco and available March 24 on Righteous Babe Records.
Peter says, “The work I do in this life has never felt so flimsy to me, but it has also never felt so necessary. I’ve been trying to hold still in the middle of that tension, and recently came across this helpful observation from Phil Ochs: “In such ugly times, the true protest is beauty.” Ani and I and Todd Sickafoose and Terence Higgins and Anna Tivel did our level best to make something beautiful. I hope it reaches you.
