Terra Nova

Peter was responsible for
recording 8 of the 12 tracks at GrooveFarm: Raven, Groundswell, All Sides, The Hills of North California, Axtecquorum, Moonrise in Mojave, Live Feed, Twice As Hard. Peter recorded all auxiliary tracks, overdubs and solos and automation. Additional recording and mixing by Zone Music and Prairie Sun.

CD Universe says
Terra Nova is world beat, modern acoustic, and experimental improv meld into an eclectic, organic sound that goes beyond the usual musical categories. From the psychedelic rock of Twice as Hard to the sweet feel of Moonrise in Mojave, from the funky blues of Say Goodbye all the way to the folky anthem Peace Begins With Me, this original collection of songs and tunes is like nothing you’ve ever heard….

Logan's Well, Thunder perfect mind.
Peter was responsible for session tracking of acoustic guitars, and Percussion: Tabla, Dumbec, and Drum set.

Taylor Guitars reports:
Logan’s Well calls its music “Amero-Celt contemporary folk”, and the San Francisco Bay area trio describes its latest album, Thunder Perfect Mind, as a “moody blend of traditional and original music.” Celtic and Appalachian styles are seasoned with bluesy inflections, as guitarists Steve Baughman and former Acoustic Guitar magazine editor Dylan Schorer – both superb fingerstylists – weave an intricate sonic latticework, using a variety of alternate tunings to create a hypnotic and brooding sound.
