Recognized in five categories for the 2011 Grammy Awards, Pete Pidgeon’s “credibly original approach,” as praised by Rolling Stone contributor Jesse Jarnow, is rooted in multi-stylistic stories of perseverance and rejuvenation – reflections of Pete’s true-life experiences. His collaborations with Grammy and Platinum Record recipients include Levon Helm (The Band, Bob Dylan), Mark Kelley (The Roots), Nikki Glaspie (Beyoncé, Nth Power), Kenwood Dennard (Miles Davis), David LaBruyere (John Mayer), Gabe Wallace (Gorillaz), and many more.
Pete's band members are experienced session musicians who can flexibly play American roots one night and neo-soul funk the next, delivering diversity with authenticity.
Jeff Buckley Co-Manager, Jack Bookbinder, recalls being “struck by Pete’s jaw-dropping vocals and approach to artistry” and Performer Magazine applauds, “Doubt Is For Losers is an example of genre-defining pop excellence.” Pete’s poignant, poetic lyrics and “acute songwriting prowess” (Relix Magazine) have been released internationally by Sony BMG and broadcast on BET’s number-one show 106 & Park for 10.3 million viewers – as sung by Epic Recording Artist Jessica Betts. Beats By Dre, VH1, and MTV have all been collaborators. Pete’s diverse compositions have been placed in award-winning films at the Los Angeles Reel Film Festival, Boston International Movie Festival, Honolulu Film Festival, and Bare Bones Film Festival.
Radio airplay on 238 international stations, including a #3 college radio peak, support from core stations KEXP (Seattle) and WERS (Boston) and placement on WKZE’s “Top 10 Indie Releases of The Year” has resulted in consistent exposure. Pete’s music is available globally on iTunes and all major digital outlets. Additionally, Pete’s YouTube musical instruction series has received over 1.2 million views.
Based in Denver, Pidgeon has performed internationally including a performance for the New York Times at Manhattan’s 85,000-capacity Javits Center, and at the 3700-capacity Fillmore Auditorium. Pete has walked the music industry’s most exclusive Red Carpets including the Grammy Awards, side by side with Paris Hilton, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Keith Urban and many others.
Pete’s current EP Growing Pains – a trio of pop songwriting, acoustic balladry, and anthemic love which Trey Anastasio drummer Russ Lawton calls, “beautiful” – was recorded at Nashville’s Sony Studios with David LaBruyere (John Mayer) and Steve Brewster (Willie Nelson, Bob Seger). Grammy-nominated engineer Eric Gorman (Herbie Hancock) mixed the collection which debuted at #9 on the college radio charts. The music video for “Will” stars Danish Chanel model Kristina Korsholm and Ford model Lasse Larsen and was shot by Sundance Film Festival Nominee Ryan Dickie.
The upcoming LP, “All the Little Things”, will drop in 2015 and features a crack rhythm section of Levon Helm, Catherine Popper (Jack White, Grace Potter, Ryan Adams), Glenn Patscha (Sheryl Crow, Marc Cohn) and Justin Guip (Levon Helm Band). The 13-song, self-produced, Americana-tinged album is being engineered by Gold Record recipient Chris Bittner (Coheed & Cambria) at The Band bassist Rick Danko’s former residence Applehead Studios in Woodstock, NY.
Giving back to the community, Pete volunteers with addiction-addled teens at Road Recovery and CMHA. Pete proclaims, “It is enriching to contribute in ways that improve the mental and physical health of so many through the medicine of music.”
THE WAY DOWN WANDERERS
Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5 piece alternative folk band, The Way Down Wanderers from Chicago, IL, not only draw listeners in with their energy and originality but also captivate fans with their unique and touching story; Banjo player, Ben Montalbano and fiddle/mandolin player, Collin Krause, are half brothers who met each other for the first time 5 years ago. The two were shocked to find that not only were they both pursuing careers in music, but that they were each drawn to the same genres. In addition to their unexpected brotherly collaboration, the other band member's dramatically diverse backgrounds in bluegrass, jazz, classical and rap music, blend together to form unique harmony vocals, soaring instrumentals, lively dynamics and standout melodies.
