Pete Kartsounes Music 

A prolific songwriter, insatiable studio junkie, and expert gig-getter, Pete Kartsounes is one of the busiest independent musicians/artists in the music world today, both under his given name and as his electronic groove-looping alter ego, DJPK. To date, Pete Kartsounes has released fourteen full length albums and numerous singles. The latest is the highly  acclaimed "Songs In The Key Of Love" (Released March 22nd, 2024).


True to Pete K style, each album represents a soulful and eclectic mix of influences from the Indie-Americana folk, soul-grass, jazz and blues and world music genres. Pete also has a deep love for composing, producing and performing original scores for meditation, yoga, dance and mindful practices. (See DJPK and the Mindful Muse Album)
