$15 ADVANCE / $20 AT DOOR
Join singer-songwriter Adam Smith as he hosts one of his favorite singer-songwriters for a unique live performance and conversation at The Listening Room Phoenix. Here’s the format: The show will start off with the guest artist performing one of Adam Smith’s songs of their choosing. Next, we will settle in for a conversation focusing on the guest artist and what music/creativity means to them. Then, after the interview segment, Adam will perform one of the guest artist’s songs followed by a full live performance where both Adam and his guest will each do a 30-minute solo set, all in front of a live studio audience.
Born into an Air Force family in Augusta Georgia, Peter spent the formative years of his life moving and living all over the U. S. and Europe. He speaks English, Swedish and German fluently.
His parents retired in Rapid City South Dakota and shortly thereafter he was infected with rock n roll fever and became involved in the local music scene. His band Zulu caught the attention of talent scouts from Los Angeles, and Peter moved to LA where he shredded the Sunset Strip and beyond for the next 30 years, releasing numerous records and jamming with everyone from Billy Idol to Slash and Johnny Depp.
Peter also ended up owning his own Hollywood hot-spot Bar & Grill, Luna Park. After shuttering the Restaurant and amicably parting ways with his wife of 28 years, Peter recently moved to Scottsdale. He is in the process of bringing an exciting new restaurant concept to the Southwest, hopefully opening their first location in Scottsdale in early 2019.
Peter loves to hike and has had a life-long love for Weimaraners. He continues to play his music professionally and can be seen performing around the greater Phoenix area!
Adam Smith is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who grew up in the mountains of Southeast Kentucky. He began writing songs in his early teens upon hearing Joni Mitchell’s album “Blue” which he says changed his life forever. He has since released five full-length studio albums and toured the United States, bringing his unique sound to a growing number of loyal fans. Adam now resides in Phoenix AZ and is working on new projects which can be expected to release this year.
