BlueBoat Home Peter Mayer Concert
Singer-songwriter, Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet songs (to include UU favorite, "BlueBoat Home")about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of "folk", and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. In college, he studied theology and music and then spent two years in seminary. Afterward, he took a part-time job as a church music director while performing at clubs and colleges, and writing and recording his music. In 1995, he quit his job and started performing full-time. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has ten albums to his credit and has sold over 80 thousand of them independently.
"Peter Mayer is a magician...(his) universe is full of metaphor and meaning, story and symbol-everything contains more than meets the eye."
-- Bill Reed, music editor, Colorado Springs Gazette
"His guitar work is breath-taking, his lyrics mind-spinning, his singing soul-soothing and his feet-on-the-ground optimism nothing short of healing."
--Marilyn Rea-Beyer, music director, WUMB Radio, Boston
"Peter Mayer makes it look easy-- beautifully crafted songs that pose eternal questions -- his arrangements make it sound like there is certainly more than one man and his guitar in the XM Satellite Radio studios."
--Mary Sue Twohy, XM Radio
"He is unafraid of complicated topics and always strives to look beyond the easy sentiment...Peter does nothing less than address the very nature of our existence...Trust me, most songwriters cannot pull this off. Peter Mayer does."
--Dale Connelly, Morning Show Host, Minnesota Public Radio
