Pete RG will release a collection of brand new songs, titled ‘Reaching For The Moon’, on October 9 via his 4L Entertainment imprint. The singer-songwriter delivers a rustic yet soulful sound throughout the five song EP as he sings about celebrating the splendours of life.
‘Reaching For The Moon’ marks RG’s follow up to the acclaimed Lightning Strikes EP, released earlier this year. Once again recording in his personal Santa Monica studio, RG collaborated heavily with multi-instrumentalist/co-producer Brina Kabler, bassist Adam Kury, guitarist Kevin Haaland and drummer Dave Krusen (an original member of Pearl Jam) after touring the better part of the year together.
Getting his start in music as the frontman of L.A. indie pop/Americana outfit Last December, RG wasted no time finding his own voice as a solo artist, starting with his debut full-length New Eyes in 2013. However, Pete RG’s solo efforts have proven to be an even stronger collaborative effort. “I wanted Last December to capture all the feelings and subtleties that I felt when I played the songs by myself,” recalls RG. “Now, I want to reveal as little as possible about myself while working with a band. It’s a much more fun and rewarding process than the earlier days.”
RG and his band will kick off an extensive tour in support of’ Reaching For The Moon’ this September, which includes a residency at New York City’s Piano’s. Upcoming dates can be found below.
