  • New Composition: “Me N Petrof” by Geoff Peters

    My friend Marcus was over for a visit today and he encouraged me to write a song dedicated to the new “love” in my life, my Petrof acoustic piano. So I wrote a simple folk ballad which I call “Me N Petrof“. It is similar to a Brad Mehldau song I vaguely remember listening to, […]

    My talented globetrotting singer-songwriter friend, Angela Molineux, dropped by my place today for a visit, and we wrote and recorded a new song, called All I Want To Do.

The second one is a […]

  • New Composition: A Horrible Accident (Music for a Film)

    Tonight I wrote a new piece, called “A Horrible Accident”. Thankfully no horrible accident actually happened for me lately. This melody really jumped out at me (it’s kind of classical), and I’m sure I’ve heard it before. I put some mysterious chords underneath and a simple major bridge to tie things together. Please click below […]
