FOR YOU is Peter Baumgartner's 3rd album. Different than its predecessor, The Zurich Sessions, but loyal to his instinctive songwriting nature: it all starts with a guitar in his hands and a melody in his mind.
Speaking about his latest single BE READY, Peter says: «BE READY is a song that I’ve loved for many years. The song was originally written and recorded by Robby Ballhause back in 1996, an artist whose songwriting and performing has always left a strong impression on me. I’ve been interested in somehow collaborating with Robby for some time now, and my new album seemed to be an ideal opportunity to do so. It’s never easy covering an accomplished artist’s original work. While the goal is to give it your own touch and spin, it has to offer a new perspective that remains respectful to the original. I love the result and believe it blends beautifully with the overall tenor and tone of my new album.»
Asked about his latest album FOR YOU, Peter adds: «The album is meant to entertain. It is not meant to teach or pretend – but hopefully to create interest with the audience that allows for reflection and inspiration. And it takes you to different places both in style and moods. Just when you think you classed it, it may hold a little surprise for you.
I’m incredibly fortunate yet again, to be surrounded by such an accomplished group of musicians who helped bring my ideas to musical life. A huge thank you goes to Jeff Thall for pulling us all together tightly through his production and mixing talents while Tom Durack, once more, added his final mastering touches.
Making music is a form of reflection and expression for me. I hope it will bring you moments of joy like it brought me making it ‘For You’.»
