Peter Giri’s musical career began in the early ’70s as a member of Cowboy, a Southern country-rock band signed to the legendary Capricorn Records. Known for heartfelt lyrics and amazing harmonies, Cowboy has often been credited with originating the sound later adopted by the Eagles and Poco. The band toured with the Allman Brothers on the East Coast for two years while gaining a devoted following nationwide.
Since then, Peter has mellowed into a gifted performer in his own right, whether solo acoustic or rockin’ out with his band. Besides his fine original compositions, he is also a masterful interpreter of others’ songs—and these are never just covers. He makes each song his own, with variations of rhythm, vocals, and melody that bring them new life. Listeners often comment, when hearing Peter play a song by another artist, “He does that better than the original!”
Peter Giri’s infectious style of playing and soaring guitar solos, combined with an uncanny ability to create rapport with his audience, invariably bring everyone out on the dance floor, where they stay until the last note is struck. If you’ve never heard an audience go wild to his unique rendition of “Red, Red Wine,” complete with added vocal patter, you’ve really missed something.
Peter Giri is both old school and new school, crossing generational gaps with his timeless music. His tasty guitar playing, heartfelt vocals, and playful nature on stage have gained him a devoted following. At a time in history when we need both heart and a good dose of fun, Peter connects with his audience in a most meaningful way.
