Album Notes
Hiding...in plain sight-

If you’re like me, you’ve been frustrated. When the hell is there going to be new music from Pete Belasco? Where’s he been? It’s been years!
About all I could get out of the man himself was the short and vague. “Look,” he said to me over an iced coffee, “Humans have issues and drama, and musicians are human...so, you can fill in the blanks. There’s a template, an overlay of life issues for all of us. Mine is possibly not that different than yours”.
Regardless of the back story, Pete has dealt with his stuff, and has finally brought us what we crave...some new amazing music! He took his lemons and made.....yeah, you know!

Strong and Able is the re-emergence of an artist whose music lives in it’s own lane, an immediately recognizable voice and sound, put together to create a feel!
He’s been called the Reluctant Artist, and has been hiding in plain sight, residing just below the radar for more than a minute.
Over-exposure has never been a problem, but the material he’s quietly released on his own timeline has been timeless! Songs like I Ain’t Doin It, Deeper, Love Train, Hurry Hurry and more, leave the listener in a perpetual state of ahhhhh! He’s always had the comfort setting set just right, and once again he does not disappoint.
This first release, Strong and Able, hints at emotionally moving forward with the line, “time to be me.” Well people...the time is so- absolutely...right! This is classic Belasco. Smooth, subtle and so solid! This new music occupies its own space, while leaving the “warm-and-intimate”, that “Belascan” sound Pete has always been able to cultivate.
An early listen has some stylistic surprises that may raise an eyebrow or two, while still keeping his “thing” on point. It’s all good! The man has always made music his way. He’s fought off “industry” people, with their “you know what you need?” advice. “Make it more House, put a rapper on it, say something explosive!”
Pete’s response said it all in one song last record, “I Ain’t Doin It, cause that ain’t me!!”
Strong and able sets the table for the return of an artist with his own vision, and at peace with the view.
5 *****

Waiting patiently
I have your previous c.d.'s and I'm hoping that this one will be put out in c.d. format. I have a very large collection in both vinyl and c.d's and want to add your newest piece. I do not download!! I look forward to the c.d. release.

I have all your previous c.d.'s and want this one as well, so please make this available in c.d. format.
Yours truly
