Petes' 6th solo release "I'm Alive" is now out and available! The Album features 11 soul-filled takes on some of Petes "Folk-Rock / Americana" induced songs. Other artists on the album include the great Milo Matthews on bass and drums (including engineering, mixing and co-producing duties), as well as Asher Fulero on piano and organ, Bob Hemenger on saxophone, Benji Nagel on dobro and more!
Pete is incredibly honored to be a new addition to the "sponsored artist" roster of Preston Thompson Guitars out of Sisters, OR. Their guitars are among the very best sounding guitars on the acoustic scene today. (Also played by artists Billy Strings, Molly Tuttle and Peter Rowan). It has been amazing watching this guitar come to life the past few months in the making.
"Master guitar luthier Preston Thompson and his small team of highly skilled craftsman produce custom acoustic guitars that have the look, playing feel and above all, the sound of the best instruments from that original Golden Era of guitar making."

“You may hear some blues, or folk, a little rock, maybe even a little bluegrass; whichever genre it is you can be certain that you'll be swept up.”
