Peter Kelly is not your average pop singer/songwriter. His music isn’t superficial and neither is he. A vocalist/guitarist who proves soulful, confessional, relatable songs still live when the right artist breathes life into them. His range of influences varies much like the audiences he attracts. Fans of the Beatles and Billy Joel can appreciate his classic approach to songwriting while being refreshed by the modern presentation influenced by Coldplay, John Mayer, Imagine Dragons, and even pop divas Pink and Katy Perry. In a recent on air interview with True Radio, the host described Peter Kelly as the “Bruce Springsteen of our generation.” His latest single,Fear of Landing, got a thumbs up from acclaimed producer Steve Lillywhite.

Peter’s first solo effort was hisForever, Again EP which was released in 2012. The title track played on NY’s Q104.3 and all six songs received play on college and online stations across the country and around the world. The introspective song Maybe was featured in Victor Bruno’s short film “Thanks Dad” which was a finalist at the 2012 Tropfest film festival. Peter has described the experience of sitting in the audience and hearing his song play in front of an audience of over 10,000 in New York’s Bryant Park as “life altering.” The film received further attention when it appeared on the Starz Cinema channel. Peter maintained a live presence including a performance of his song “Oz” at the United Nations Correspondence Awards Ceremony at Cipriani in New York. The response from critics was affirmatory as exemplified byRoger Z of More Sugar Entertainment; “The wit and charm of Forever, Again engages the listener instantly and completely. The top notch writing, playing, and arranging ranks with the best.” With the positive response received from their first collaboration, Peter has again teamed up with John Campos to produce his next offering. This latest compilation of tracks are, as Kelly describes, his best work to date.
