Dear Friends, Greetings from an unseasonably mild Nashville, TN. Happy 2012.
Birds of Relocation Update: Like most construction projects, recording for BoR has lagged behind my hoped-for schedule, but there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel. Ben's (Shive) touring schedule has been, and will be, super busy this winter/early spring, so though our work days will be minimal that doesn't mean things are at a complete standstill. After tracking (i.e., recording drums and bass) the first six songs before Thanksgiving, we were finally able to track the final four songs two weeks ago. We are set to record electric guitars early this week, and then I’ll begin recording vocals and background vocals (my favorite part) into early February with the talented Andy Gullahorn. Have I told you that I'm so very eager for you to hear the songs on Birds of Relocation? I am. Verily, verily so.
Original Artwork Available: In addition to music, I have begun offering some of my original paintings (I paint) and photos (I'm a shutterbug). If you are interested, these are available (and for sale) in the webStore. Please check back there often as I will be continually posting new paintings, photos, and perhaps other various homemade crafts. Of course, CDs, t-shirts (adult and youth sizes), infant onesies, and combo deals are still available, too.
House Concert Tour: This winter/spring/summer I am embarking on a house concert tour. Based on my experience this past fall on the Under The Radar Tour, I am very excited about the prospect. Curious? Here's the scoop: - $150 fee (50% deposit due upon booking -> helps me book my travel). - Hotel room (for privacy) is much preferred, but not a deal-breaker. - A meal (preferably not cold gruel). - I play my songs in your living room for you, your friends and neighbors.

Website Facelift: Finally, if you’ve visited www.ericpeters.net lately, you’ve no doubt noticed a most welcome new look. A huge thanks and cyber-hug to James Witmer of Grove City, PA for his hard, efficient and dedicated work in giving the ol’ website a new look. For those of you who still follow my rip-roaringly haphazard blogging skillz, we’ve moved all things “bloggy” over to my now-official blog: In The Middle of the Storm. Most recently, I’ve been posting some of my oddball poetry. Embrace the inner weirdo.
