Album Notes
PETER LAMSON has delighted audiences in Great Britain and in the U.S., up and down the East Coast, in the Southwest, and all over the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and California. He has shared the stage with diverse artists known both regionally and worldwide, such as Bonnie Raitt, Kathy Mattea, Jerry Jeff Walker, Laurie Lewis, Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan, Hank Ballard, Nick Lowe, Chris Smither, The Bobs, Roy Rogers, Norton Buffalo, Martin Sexton, Vance Gilbert, Beausoleil, and Jonathan Edwards, among others. His highly original material draws on Blues, Swing, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Caribbean, and Folk. These diverse influences are brought into sharp focus by Peter's distinctive vocal and guitar styles. His own material, combined with his extensive and impressive repertoire of other writers' songs, form the centerpiece of his performances; and he moves comfortably between styles in alternately playful and moving performances that keep his audiences pleasurably off-balance and wanting more. Peter has toured several times in New England and the Southwest & has been featured at Kerrville Music Festival's BLUES PROJECT as well as other festivals like the Atlanta Dogwood Festival, Vancouver Island MusicFest, Natchitoches-NSU Folklife Festival, Sonoma County Folk Festival, Napa Valley Music Festival, etc.

Peter has four releases on Magniphoria Music. Peter's first two albums, "Go Ahead, Sparrow" and "Next to the Door" (both on cassette only), are outstanding compilations of originals, from Jazz- and Caribbean-influenced tunes on "Sparrow" to band versions of Folk/Rock and Pop/R & B on "Next to the Door". "Lookin'At The Blue Side Of Things" (CD & cassette), is an expression of Peter's Blues roots and a long-awaited response to his fans' many requests for a compilation of some of his favorite Blues tunes of classics and originals. The most recent release, "That Was Now,This Is Then" (cassette only), captures 15 classics and one original of 30s & 40s-style ballads and Swing tunes, sung and played as only Peter can.

Creative and evocative
I played Lookin' At The Blue Side of Things for a blues harmonica player in Massachusetts and he couldn't believe how cool it was. He especially couldn't believe Peter recorded his version of Tore Down before Eric Clapton's. Even Eric needs his inspiration from somebody, I guess.

She Moves Me takes me to that wonderful space where it's a smoky dark bar with a shot of whiskey, a pint of beer and a cigarette in front of me... true I don't smoke or drink much anymore, and I'm too tired to stay out late in bars anymore, but it gives me that Feeling that makes everything cool, thoughtful and inertly creative. This of course is most of the time. Sometimes it just makes me giggle just thinking that She Moves me is about someone who works for Starving Students Moving Company. That's what good music does. Different places with differnt listens.

WHAT a great way to spend an evening.
I know a few singer-songwriters, so I'm not exactly shocked that someone so talented could be off my radar; but YOW, this guy is so EXcellent. Helluva a singer & writer --lots of range/nuance/power, fantastic guitar player, an amazing performer. He's got it all, except fame. Which, happily, doesn't seem to affect his performance level --the audience wins every time (and I've seen him a few times now). His CD & cassettes are knockout, too. A puzzle, but luckily for us fans, it doesn't matter if his name is a household word ...we get him all to ourselves! Highly recommended! (...in case that was unclear before.)

Can't beat these blues!
Peter Lamson's CD, Lookin' at the Blue Side of Things, balances outstanding instrumental skill with expressive vocals on a great selection of both familiar and original songs. He has created a sound here which makes it easy to listen to the blues without getting them. His rendition of She Moves Me is among the best I have heard, and I often find myself singing Funky is a State of Mind. Peter's interpretation of the blues leaves me hoping for a sequel.
