Just a snapshot – and a nice memory from last fall’s Sweet Remains Europe tour! We had a gig in the UK and got to spend a day walking around London, so we went to Abbey Road, naturally! I love this shot mostly because it was an extremely rare quiet moment on an otherwise hectic street, crowded with (fellow) tourists and very impatient drivers waiting for the non-stop-photo-ops. This was was just a lucky moment, I guess. Had it all to myself on this sunny autumn English morning. And yes, my walk is… different. But I decided to make it my own, you know?
Exciting times! So peterdaymusic has found a new online home – please forgive the lack of content as I “move in”… should be fully operational in the next few weeks. In the meantime, a few exciting bits of news:
– Europe tour! Yes indeed, headed back to Germany with The Sweet Remains for a three-week tour. Check out the website for full tour dates:
– Radio appearance! I will be performing solo on 104.7 WNCS The Point on February 15 at 6:30pm, mark your calendars! Thanks to Carrie at The Point for setting up the appearance. I will be playing tunes from my recent release, Break Down the Heavy, as well as a few new ones that will be on the next solo album!
– new tunes! Clint and I have been busy busy in the workshop crafting some new tunes, some of our finest efforts yet. We have three new country songs and a handful of ones for the new Grift album (release TBD but sometime in 2015)
See you on the road!
Welcome to the online home of peter day music, constructed in the cold, clear light of a Vermont winter afternoon as I put the finishing touches on my first “official” solo release. I have a few other releases, mostly solo acoustic, but this will be the first project to fully realize my sonic vision in a full band context. And what fun to polish a collection of songs intended to feel just as home in the background as you make pancakes on a lazy morning, in the foreground with headphones and a glass of something, or as driving music when the road feels right. And Grift fans, never fear – we’re still writing lots of new music in Jonesville, and loving that, too. Here’s a little home for some of my songs that live further along the spectrum towards singer-songwriter, whilst keeping the electricity of the songs that The Grift can play in a bar full of happy dancing people.
