Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet – songs about interconnectedness and the human journey, about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of “folk” and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. He studied theology and music in college, then spent two years in seminary. After deciding that the priesthood wasn’t for him, he took a part-time job as a church music director for eight years, while performing at clubs and colleges and writing and recording his music.
In 1995, he quit his job and started touring fulltime. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has 10 albums to his credit and has sold over 80,000 copies independently.
On Aug. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Peter will take the stage at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. General admission tickets are $15 in advance at www.aca.tix.com or can be purchased at the door the night of the show.
