NOW AND THEN marks Peter Lovett’s debut release which is remarkable considering he has been winning fans one audience at a time for over 20 years. “I’ve had plenty of near misses with record labels over the years, but for one reason or another, the tumblers never clicked.” Peter started getting up and singing for audiences at an early age, first in school like a lot of kids, and then eventually starting his first band The Shings at age 13 back in New York. “I remember a jolt going through me while rehearsing in chorus for our Christmas concert in 4th grade. Wow, that was something. I still get a little bit of that every time I sing.” Leaving New York for New England, Lovett fronted bands Cat’s Cradle, Street Worm, and his male/female acoustic duo Elysian Fields with partner Sammy Haynes. During this period Peter opened for the Allman Brothers Band, Michael Martin Murphey, Rickie Lee Jones and other well-known recording artists. Returning to New York, Lovett formed Canopy. “We played NYC at several clubs regularly including Home and JP’s and down in The Village. We also played out on Long Island and The Hamptons in the summer. We had a blast.” Lovett then moved to LA and continued performing solo acoustic and with his band. He sang at The Troubador and other well-known LA venues. He also played the lead role of a singer in “Jake’s Song”, a student film at The American Film Institute. During this period Lovett made acquaintances with Greg Copeland and Jackson Browne. “We were having an informal vocal session one night and I happened to be singing next to Jackson. He turned to me and said ‘You’ve got a really good voice’. That was pretty cool, coming from him.” Peter’s musical journey continued next to Texas where he formed Lovett and Swank with partner Sam Swank who was reviewed in Variety as “…a sensational guitarist.” Peter Lovett continues writing and performing as often as he can. He lives in Bandera, Texas.
