Peter Mulvey

His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it’s on steroids… a superb technician.

—The Boston Globe

He has been the street-singing kid in Dublin, the man fronting the storming electric band, the spoken-word craftsman, the Tin Pan Alley delver bringing his music to audiences from Fairbanks to Bilbao. In clubs, theaters, coffeeshops, the Kennedy Center, and old barns Mulvey continues to hone his sound with grit and warmth. Mulvey says his latest, Silver Ladder, another fine rootsy romp, is the best thing he’s ever done. In Mulvey’s hands Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk are presumed colleagues of Tom Waits and Jolie Holland. Bill Frisell and Willie Nelson are obiously in the same wheelhouse. Bobby Charles is still alive and having coffee with a bemused Leonard Cohen somewhere in the Ninth Ward.
