PETER GALPERIN – Concept, Music, Lyrics and Book
Longtime New York City resident, Seattle native and grunge rock refugee, Peter studied classical violin and piano with his musician parents, and was active in the burgeoning Northwest rock scene. He has recorded several critically-acclaimed CD's in New York (2010's PERFECT WORLD TODAY and 2013's A DISPOSABLE LIFE) and in Nashville (2014's JUST MIGHT GET IT RIGHT and 2017's recently released THIS BURNING SUN), and has composed music for a variety of dance performances, tv, and independent film soundtracks. He regularly performs as a solo act and with his band in clubs throughout New York City and in the Pacific Northwest. Music Web Express 3000 has described him musically "in the spirit of Paul Simon at his most folk-rockingest" and "...like a 21st century Phil Ochs, redefining the significance of the modern day pop musician." Another review in ventsmagazine.com says "Galperin's music is uplifting, thought provoking... and overly eccentric in a good way."
BULLDOZER: THE BALLAD OF ROBERT MOSES is the result of Peter's overlapping interests in the urban environment, car culture, 20th century history, and a youth spent obsessed with epic stories (Ben-Hur, Moby Dick, Treasure Island, The Book of Revelations, etc.). Currently, Peter is developing a play with music that explores the intersection of real estate, love, and cosmetic surgery, and writing a new rock musical focused on climate change that he'd rather not talk about just yet. Peter's CD's are available for streaming and downloading at petergalperin.com, and all the usual digital sources.
