'Pete Minda's singing can easily stand up to any one of his folk influences. His voice is touched with that boxcar tone found in some of the early American crooners but with a more relevant passion and richer vocal and guitar tones.' Eric Shea, Listen.Com At the place where soul meets folk, pop meets rock and earnestness meets wit stands.....well nothing stands there but if something did, it would be the music of singer/songwriter/guitarist Pete Minda. A self-described music listening junkie for most of his adult life, Pete has been writing and recording his unique brand of folk rock since the early nineties, releasing the all acoustic compact disc, Fringe Of Happiness in 1999 while living in Austin, Texas. A self-titled release followed in 2002 while Pete was living in his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. He relocated to Brooklyn, NY in 2003. Released in March of '06, Long Way is Pete's first full scale CD recording. Featuring some of NYC' s finest producers and players, it has been a year in the making and is a collection of tunes from the first 15 years of his songwriting career. This very personal collection of music is a rollicking ride through the American music form with touches of blues, gospel, folk, country and singer/songwriter pop.
