Leave It All Behind
"Leave It All Behind" is Pete Goslow's debut Singer Songwriter CD. Every second of "Leave It All Behind" is an acoustically driven journey through a vast and enormous wall of sound. His warm playing style and imaginative songwriting lends itself nicely to this adventure you don't want to miss. In terms of his mammoth production, Pete pulled out all the stops and did not hold back. His lyrics are influenced by growing up in the spectacular mountains of Northern Arizona (Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, Sedona, The Painted Desert). Through his love of surfing and his Southern CA lifestyle, his songs also express paramount concerns facing the wellbeing of our oceans and beaches. Considered to be an up and coming mainstream singer songwriter with an edgy classical, virtuosic approach to the guitar, "Leave It All Behind" is his official launching pad. Goslow's original sound can be identified as a head on collision with Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Cat Stevens and Dave Matthews. As a singer songwriter, Pete was influenced as a child by folk legends of the seventies, "his father's music". As a teenager his love for progressive rock inspired him to take the job as lead singer of his high school rock band "Vital Signs" (there were concert videos: plenty of embarrassing "Behind the Music" material). As a Los Angeles based singer songwriter and classical guitarist, he has made his living playing fulltime as a blue collar musician for the past 20 years. Live performances of his original songs have been broadcast on KUSC. He has also appeared on "Daybreak OC" KDOC Live T.V. morning show as their featured music guest. Recent highlight performances include: presidential, state senator and governor receptions and parties, major award shows, private celebrity parties (recently hired by Michael Eisner and his lovely wife Jane to perform privately at their home in Bel Air), as well as warming up for such pop artists as Lisa Loeb and Olivia Newton-John. On numerous occasions he has performed during private dinners prepared personally by Chef Wolfgang Puck who jokingly refers to Pete as "guitar guy"! During his classical guitar training at Chapman University's Conservatory of Music, he was a member of the highly acclaimed Chapman University Guitar Quartet, who released a CD and toured throughout the Western United States. He has performed classical guitar in master classes for world-renowned artists such as Manual Barrueco, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, and David Russel. Chapman University is also known for it's vocal program - which he took full advantage by studying voice with some of the top vocal teachers in North America. Upon graduating from Chapman, he moved to Los Angeles and began singing, performing and teaching full time. He recorded and release his well received first solo classical guitar CD "Love's Passion" in 2000 (click the link on your left under "albums you will love").
