The Peter Ulrich Collaboration

The Peter Ulrich Collaborations is a collaboration helmed by Peter Ulrich, former percussionist for the iconic Dead Can Dance, the brilliantly innovative band that music historian Ian McFarlane described as world music that "constructed soundscapes of mesmerizing grandeur and solemn beauty... with African polyrhythms, Gaelic folk, Gregorian chants,
Middle-Eastern mantras and art-rock".
 Ulrich met Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard, the founders and cornerstones of Dead Can Dance, in London in 1982 and joined the band on drums and percussion. After leaving DCD and after releasing a string of critically acclaimed releases as a solo artist, Peter's next big step was The Peter Ulrich Collaboration. The Collaboration is the brainchild of Ulrich and Trebor “Big T” Lloyd (CEO of City Canyons LLC/City Canyons Productions) as producer and a principal collaborator. The album features songwriting by Ulrich, Lloyd, and New York songwriters Anne Husick and Sara Wendt among others, vocals by David Steele, Wendt, Ulrich, Jen Elliott, Shane Chapman, Stephanie Linn as well as other bright American and English talents plus a crackerjack band playing rock, post-rock, world and folk influenced music. The Peter Ulrich Collaboration has released two albums, The Painted Caravan and Tempus Fugitives and is currently at work on the final album of The Painted Caravan Trilogy, Final Reflections. New York audiences were recently thrilled by a live performance of the Collaboration at Manhattan's famous Webster Hall where it played to a packed house. Currently available on CD Baby is Artificial Man, the first single release from the upcoming Final Reflections album.
