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 Austin based singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer 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.
Released in March of '06 while he was living in Brooklyn, NY, Long Way was Pete's first full scale CD recording. Featuring some of NYC' s finest producers and players, it 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.
A versatile and skilled performer, Pete is capable of playing shows solo or with a full ensemble. Over the years he has appeared on: Americana OK with Tom Fahey, The Austin Music Network, KKFI Kansas City Community Radio, Texas Radio One and many others.
His live playing experience encompasses playing for hundreds of people at festivals, solo gigs in coffeehouses, campfires and even a nursing home.
His song Fifteen Minutes Of Fame was the theme song for Director Mike Akel’s sleeper, indie film hit Butcher's 15 in 1999 and in 2009 his song Time Warp was picked for the best of CD compilation for RAD (Recording Artist Development) a NYC based not for profit that works with emerging recording artists.
Over the years, Pete has also collaborated with other recording artists including, Annie Keating, Breck Alan and Vicky Emerson. He currently resides in Austin, TX with his Wife Eleanor and cats Clark and Penny.
