When Karma Was King is the songwriting and performance duo of Peter Errich and Keith Knowles. Peter and Keith have been co-writing and performing with each other since 2000. They have collaborated with noted producers/engineers/songwriters such as Shelly Yakus (U2,Tom Petty), Jim Tullio (Los Lonely Boys, Mavis Staples), and Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Madonna). The release of their 2010 EP, My Small Self, highlighted Peter and Keith's unique writing style and provided a new sense of direction for these musicians. "After that EP, Pete and I really discovered that we really enjoy co-writing and performing together in a stripped down setting which allowed the songs to be the focus. We felt and feel that each person highlights the other's strengths.", states Keith. Throughout 2010, When Karma Was King supported its debut EP with acoustic performances for audiences who were drawn to the quality of the songs, harmonies, and distinctive selection of covers presented during their intimate acoustic sets.
In fall 2011, Peter and Keith traveled to Hudson, NY to record with producers Henry Hirsch and Rachel Alina of Waterfront Studios. Waterfront Studios is a production company that is committed to promoting and representing the songwriters with whom they work via their licensing catalogue. During these sessions, two songs were recorded which will be included in the Waterfront licensing catalogue and will soon be available for download and streaming on this site. The creative partnership between When Karma Was King and Waterfront Studios will help Peter and Keith hone the craft of songwriting and expose new audiences to their music.
"Writing, licensing and performing these songs gives us a great opportunity to connect with others in so many ways. It is truly something that we are grateful for. Music is an interactive process between the listener and the writer or performer. It's karmic in many ways, hence the name of our duo. There is nothing more we'd rather do with our lives.", states Peter. When Karma Was King's music can be purchased on this site as well as digital distributors iTunes and Amazon.
