Calm Before the Stillness
Peter Sean Maloney is a singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles. His musical influences range from acoustic troubadours of the sixties like Donovan, Nick Drake, and Bert Jansch to new romantic, dream pop artists from the eighties and nineties. Peter draws on the use finger-picking and alternate tunings, as well as the breathy vocals and delicate melodies of the English songwriters, while lyrically he is inspired by authors like Byron, Kafka, and Dostoyevsky. He also plays a variety of string instruments including violin, viola, and mandolin providing a mix of chamber and celtic arrangements. Currently, Peter is playing the acoustic circuit in and around Los Angeles after traveling abroad to perform in London over the summer to promote his debut CD entitled: the calm before the stillness. A followup CD is near completion.
