  • New Recording: I Need More by Angela Molineux and Geoff Peters

    My friend, vocalist Angela Molineux, dropped by my place in between her trips to New York and London, and we recorded an original song called I Need More. We wrote this song around three years ago, and it has been good to let time pass and see how we grew musically since then. I would […]

  • New Composition: I Spy

    Last weekend I wrote a new song, it’s called I Spy, and it starts off with a “haunting minor” mysterious opening, builds some tension, and then has a cool major-7 bridge section which I really like. I made a recording of it which you can view in the Youtube video player below or view on […]

  • New Composition: Lament

    I wrote a classical-sounding piano piece, Lament, that is quite moody and reminds me a little bit of Beethoven and Chopin. (Click here to listen.)
