Clean, clear, and precise with honestly holding it all together … this is color palette of Pete Mroz’s music. His music is Hot AC, AAA, Americana, or Pop … a love song, blues song, acoustic song, or a roots song … it is all about the soul of the music and sometimes that concept doesn’t fit a genre. Influenced by a wide range of artists like Robert Johnson, The Beatles, Clapton and Sting his music has been compared to artists like Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor … an old soul in a modern world some would say. Born in Indiana and raised in over 13 states he learned at a very young age the rhythm of the road which has served to be a priceless lesson in his life. He started playing guitar at 17 and moved to Nashville, TN at 19 to learn how to write songs. Pete has independently released his 3rd studio album “We’ll Rise Above” produced by Warren Huart and fully funded by his fans through Kickstarter.com. Pete is currently out on the road promoting and making new fans from town to town. He plays over 175 shows a year between on-line live broadcasts and shows on the road. He recently has been endorsed by longtime favorite guitar company Martin Guitars and Fishman. If asked the question what’s next Pete says, “Right now … onward and upward”!

Pete Mroz has a rough-ish look to him (catch the reverse liner photo) so you never expect the sensitivity and delicacies shown. Nonetheless, the guy is fully invested in his gentle compositions and not just as a sideline, as is the case with so many. He plays a simple chord-oriented guitar while making a melodious and wistful singing voice the main point—pitch perfect, floating, and pliable. Think of the mellowest sides of early America, Michael Franks, Chris DeBurgh, Batteaux, Simon & Garfunkel, that sort of thing. And when David Henry brings the strings in, oh geez! Hauntingly beautiful and then some.
When you might need a period of calm and reflection, this is what you want. Soothingly arranged, gorgeously spare and spacious while exactly populated for precise and perfect evocations, Detachment is a rare bird and herewith joins my small collection of diamond expositions in this vein, releases all too few and far between. Be prepared for pastorales, thoughts on vanished love, insights on human dilemmas, and moments so poignant they make your spirit ache, each one presented in filigree and gauze—in short, ten cuts of non-stop exquisite delicacy.
