Peter Mulvey has been a songwriter roaddog raconteur for as long as he can remember. Raised in working-class Milwaukee, he went to school in Ireland for a semester and began cutting classes to busk on Grafton Street in Dublin and hitchhike through the country, finding whatever gigs he could. Back stateside, he spent a couple years gigging in the Midwest before lighting out for Boston, where he perfected the art of subway busking, and became a regular at folk coffeehouses. Small shows led to larger shows, which eventually led to regional and then national and international touring. The wheels have not stopped. Twenty or so records later, he has built his life’s work on collaboration and eclecticism, folding everything he encounters into his work: poetry, social justice, scientific literacy, and a deeply abiding humanism. His latest is Love Is The Only Thing.
