" I have listened with great joy ...
This is excellent work...
Peter Calo's "Time Machine" is optly named, as these wonderful songs and their delicious and masterful musicality take us both through the past and into the future...
And know "Every Ordinary Day" is my current favorite... ;)"
I'm listening to your album, and I love the mix of styles,
The unselfconcious vocals, and the smart lyrics!
I especially love "Elephants Never Forget".
It's a deep, lyrical and soulful 60s Rock/Pop song.
I hear it in a movie.
I hope many ears get to relish your work.
Your faithful songwriter, Sophie B. Hawkins
Your CD sounds fantastic.
Your singing, the arrangements, the mixes.
It's got great songs done to perfection.
I LOVE "Don't Ever Go Away",
there have been a few times when I just found myself singing it in the shower.
It's a great song.
And "Ordinary Day" is a classic.
And "Sail Away" - well, it's stunningly beautiful!
Ok, "Elephant" may be my absolute favorite song of yours ever.
And this track is so, so great.
And "If My Heart Was Yours" is so catchy, you can't keep still when you hear it,
and you go away with it bouncing in your head.
I never heard you sound better.
And, "Do I Love You Too Much" is terrific."
April Martin, singer, songwriter
“The guitar playing and interpretive skill of Peter Calo is a rare and stunning natural occurrence, like a meteor shower on a magical night on the prairie, or viewing the moon setting slowly on the ocean’s far horizon. Like those things, this album is a gift to be savored and treasured.”

Jimmy Fallon Show - 11/11/2009:
Carly Simon Performs 'You Belong To Me'
featuring John Forte, Peter Calo & The Roots
PETER CALO is known for backing
the likes of Carly Simon and Mary Gatchell
(which is where I saw him work), but he proves with "Wired to the
(petercalo.com) he is more than capable of holding
his own. All the pop
singer-songwriter material here were either written by him, or collaboratively
with his wife Marianne. Calo is in total pop singer-songwriter mode
I was totally impressed by his vocals, which
are soft and genteel without
being too soft or too genteel. I would happily
go see him perform solo, as
well as in backing-up mode. He's a talented
songwriter, guitarist, and singer.
His songs are pull of shifting melody
lines and pacing. Some of my fave cuts
include the title cut, the other
celestiial song "Full Moon Tango",
"Situation Totally". I was also in
awe of his instrumental, "Takin' a Sip
(On a Horse-drawn Carriage), which is
total guitar in near bluegrass
form. Another song
of note is the soul-inspired "Guns
Are Not Enough".
