Mountains and motorcycles; pigs, pubs, and planets; insight, hope and humor--such are the ingredients one finds in the songs of Peter Mayer. Earthy and intimate, Mayer's songs invite the listener to consider the deeper aspects of life. The standard lyrical dish of love lost and found is not on his menu, rather, it consists of an eclectic blend of thoughtful songs about the collective human journey. His welcoming voice and inventive guitar work along with his honest delivery provide the perfect vehicle for his down-home wisdom.
"Million Year Mind," Peter's fourth CD, offers an eclectic blend of thoughtful songs about the collective human journey. Fans in the Upper Midwest learned about Peter through his previous CDs, "Uncrowded Sky," "Straw House Down," and "Bountiful," but it is with "Million Year Mind" that Peter's audience and critical acclaim has expanded across the country.
