Pete KronowittWoody Guthrie Stage - Rm 232 - 5:30-6:00
Pete Kronowitt is a performing songwriter with 3 recorded and fully produced CDs. Pete's influences range from acoustic folk pop with hints of country, indie folk to progressive. Pete's first album, "Phases of the Heart," recorded in 1993, has universal appeal covering themes from family and heartbreak, to societal struggles. Pete’s freshman effort was recorded and produced by industry veteran John Alagia, of Dave Matthews Band, Jon Mayer, and Ben Folds Five fame. Pete’s second album, “Threads,” and third, "elements," were produced by Pete Snell, who toured extensively with Lyle Lovett.
Pete's latest songs ask the listener to face truth no matter how uncomfortable, speak out against injustice even in the face of risk, look beyond the facade to consider our influences, and realize the immediacy of this moment. Pete says, "I'll be preaching to my choir and asking you to move from agreement to action. No one wants to do these things so this new music will fall on deaf ears. I readily admit a fool’s errand but that ain't gonna stop me. I'm a stubborn idiot and cannot wait to be proven wrong."
