For Pete’s Sake

Debut album out now – and on tour next week

Pete RG’s rich baritone voice is at the center of his distinct sound, one that has reached fruition on his debut full-length, Tender Souls (out now). He hits the UK mid-January 2017 to showcase his latest album Tender Souls in support to fellow U.S. band Candlebox. The band features Adam from Candlebox (double duty) and also Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox).

The album has received some ecstatic responses: In its review of one club date, Pancakes And Whiskey pretty much summarized all that RG offers to his audiences: “high-quality rock with honest and engaging lyrics, a hammering backbeat plus gorgeous harmonies”

RG says: “As a songwriter, I’m always trying to express myself as best I can, lyrically and musically. On Tender Souls I feel I was able to do that without cutting corners or falling back into ambiguity. It’s a really good picture of where I’m at, with a lot of experience under my belt but also a lot of optimism.” He credits Brina Kabler for helping him raise the bar on Tender Souls and on the road. “She’s my engineer, co-producer, mixer, keyboardist — and my fiancée ,” he notes. “Whether onstage or in sessions, we’ve established a great give-and-take, where we learn from each other. We’re very much on the same level in terms of taste and inspiration. She helps me focus on what I do best. Brina is a huge part of everything I do.”

Born in Los Angeles to Greek immigrants, Pete RG (nee, Peter Argyropoulos) grew up in a musical household. As working musicians, his parents inspired him to learn a variety of instruments and start playing band gigs while in college. Beginning in 1998 and up into 2007, he was the principal songwriter and lead singer with the popular indie band, Last December.

During that time he also laid the foundation for his solo career, with years of live shows that most recently included a 25 show, Spring 2016 US tour with Candlebox.  Now he brings this brand of rich melodic rock to the UK. See full dates below.
