Peter Mulvey

Event Date: 
Saturday, August 17, 2013 - 8:00pm

Peter Mulvey performs original songs as well as songs from a vast, varied, and deep well of classic and obscure covers. Night after night, the process of divining the heart of a song and being alert to where the moment can lead, has shaped this artist. To each rendition, he brings the soul of a singer, a light touch in a heavy world.

Recorded in just 3 days at Signature Sounds Studios in CT, The Good Stuff is a sequence in which a bluesy take on the Ellington classic “Mood Indigo” is sandwiched between Tom Waits’ obscure “Green Grass,” lovingly relocated from the guttural, and a charmingly haphazard rendition of Jolie Holland’s “Old Fashioned Morphine”. This triptych represents not so much the diversity of songwriting as the commonality.

“I’d put those three artists in the same drawer in the big bureau of songwriters,” says Mulvey. “They’re from different eras, and considered different animals - jazz composer, bohemian beat poet, Americana revivalist - but to my ear they’re the same, in that they’re always trying to write a timeless song.”  http://www.petermulvey.com/

“Peter Mulvey is all substance, which is his style.” - The Boston Globe.
