-Michael McGlone
Actor/Writer/Musician

Hi Peter,
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!
Really stunning.
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.”
- Richard Barone producer

Carly Simon, John Forte & Peter Calo on the Jimmy Fallon Show  

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 Moon"

(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 here.

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", especially
"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 folk
form. Another song of note is the soul-inspired "Guns Are Not Enough".
