Tomorrow Could Be Gone
The River

Out Here On My Own vol.1 was released on August 7th, 2020 and

is straight to the song and directly from the heart.  An "up close and personal" approach with just voice, guitar and some harmonica.No "bells and whistles" on this soul-filled compilation of Petes' writings. 

Chasing Dreams 

A hopeful song for the times, Chasing Dreams was produced, written, and performed by Pete in May 2020. This recording is from the very first take of the song, that captures its raw smokey essence. Literally inspired in an instant, the words fell onto the page and piano at the very same time his partner Andrea, had the sudden inspiration to work together and bring Project Dreameweave into the world.
