Live Music with Peter Galperin

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. He admits to what he doesn’t understand, and questions what he already knows – with equal parts humor, skepticism, and honesty. Robert Steven Silverstein at Music Web Express 3000 ( describes Peter’s music “…in the spirit of Paul Simon at his most folk-rockingest”, hails Galperin as “…uplifting, thought provoking… and overly eccentric (in a good way),” and Steven Reid at says Peter’s latest CD is “…hook-laden fun… bold and breezy.”

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 City and Nashville, and has composed music for a variety of dance performances, and independent film and TV soundtracks.
