About Pete Kronowitt
Pete Kronowitt has 20 years at clubs, coffee houses and charitable benefits, performing titles from his three professionally produced albums. Pete‟s songs have a universal appeal, covering themes from family to societal struggles, to philosophical justifications for drinking. Pete‟s acoustic pop, indie folk music distills relationships and the issues in between that we all experience. Pete’s third album, “elements,” is comprised of 12 songs expressing the full spectrum of relationships. From the first tug of the heart string, to the harsh salvos of war, to a ‘goodbye song’ custom made for today’s reality TV. Each song on “elements” represents its own story, yet the complete collection creates an interwoven narrative of family, friends, emotion, and personal perspectives of larger themes. “Now It’s We,” a wedding song built upon a lyrical foundation of trust, respect and friendship, is the centerpiece of “elements.” Pete’s critically acclaimed website, www.petekronowitt.com, provides an interactive framework linking the “elements” narrative with music, video and behind-the-scenes motivations for many of the songs.
Pete’s first album, “Phases of the Heart,” was produced by John Alagia and recorded at Rutabaga Studios. John is best known for his production credits with the Dave Matthews Band, Jon Mayer, Ben Folds Five and Jason Mraz. “Phases of the Heart” has ten fully produced songs, which range from ‘acoustic popgressive’ to slow and earnest ballads.
Pete’s sound is the perfect cocktail of Jack Johnson and Death Cab for Cutie, with just a shot of Elvis Costello, mixing today’s tastiest adult pop, singer/songwriting influences.
In September 2009, Pete kicks off his first tour of Asia, traveling to China, Japan, Vietnam and other locations to be announced. Pete will be touring with long-time collaborator and friend, bassist John David Coppola. John has over 25 years of experience playing thousands of gigs, and has spent two-years touring internationally, clocking over 300 shows with The Danny Morris Band. John also played upright bass on Pete’s first CD, adding a layered and upbeat flavor to “Phases of the Heart”.
