What to Expect
I am a keyboard/ acoustic guitarist that sings. I grew up on the Beatles & the 70's Laurel Canyon singer songwriter movement. If you like the Beatles, The Eagles , CSN, Neil Young , Jackson Browne you'll love my classic rock set. I combine a bare bones acoustic performance with augmenting backing tracks that give me a full band sound.
I also can provide a cocktail hour set for weddings & private parties. This set would also include classic songs from the '50's and '60's from "Sinatra to Elvis" into addition to hits from the '70's and '80's.
I also am a songwriter and my music is available for listen and download at www.petermichaelcardella.com Take a listen...
Peter Michael Cardella has traveled many musical roads in his lifetime and finally found the way back to his heart.
" I only write about matters that personally affect me and hopefully these songs will make this journey through life a little smoother."
"My music reflects everyday life; the good and the bad. I aspire to write songs that affect people and hopefully they"ll experience a new perspective on this adventure we call life."Cardella's music is very vocally oriented, focusing his songs on the melody to create his own brand of country-tinged,folk-rock. PMC cites The Beatles, Neil Young, Jackson Browne and the Eagles as his musical mentors.
I've always been drawn to songs that possess two key ingredients; a strong melody and a meaningful message.
I am now in the process of re-releasing my first CD "The Way back to your Heart" on CD with new digital mastering & art work. " Heart is available for purchase via digital download on either www.reverbnation.com/petermichaelcardella or from my new website www.petermichaelcardella.com.
