Tomorrow Could Be Gone
Out Here On My Own vol.1 was released on August 7th, 2020 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.
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.

Broken is a powerful 8 minute soundscape inspired by all those hurting and broken in this world. With 48 layers of tracks, this original single took over 60 hours of engineering to complete. A masterpiece of sound, Brian McElhiney from the Bend Bulletin writes, "Broken is an 8-minute soul-filled journey that rides the waves of the human spirit and like most of Pete Kartsounes' writings; it ends with a silver lining".
