In a unique style combining alt-rock, classic rock and bossa nova influences, Peter Galperin writes and performs songs about the people, places, and things that he loves. With equal parts humor, skepticism, and honesty, he admits to what he doesn't understand, and questions what he already knows. Robert Steven Silverstein at Music Web Express 3000 (mwe3.com) describes Peter's music as “...in the spirit of Paul Simon at his most folk-rockingest”, and ventsmagazine.com hails Galperin as "...uplifting, thought provoking... and overly eccentric (in a good way)."
A Seattle native and grunge rock refugee, Peter studied violin and piano with his classical musician parents, and was active in the burgeoning Seattle rock scene during college. As a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, violin, piano, mandolin, bass), Peter has recorded in New York and Nashville, and has composed music for a variety of dance performances, independent film soundtracks, and TV.
In addition to four critically-acclaimed CD releases, Peter has written and composed "BULLDOZER", a rock musical about the life and times of urban planner Robert Moses that had it's New York Off-Broadway debut in November 2017, and ran for 7 weeks ("...theatrical gold," according to New Yorker Magazine). Currently, Peter is developing a play with music that explores the intersection of real estate, love, and cosmetic surgery, and composing a new rock musical about climate change that he'd rather not talk about just yet.
