Still working on that hot first release.



Peter Lehndorff writes folk and jazz songs about everyday life. Some are humorous. Some are serious. They are observations about the things that happen to him and the stuff he sees. There are stories about cars; what he eats; and the places he has lived.

Caregiving. For several years, Peter stopped performing. He was his late wife, Kathy's full-time caregiver as she battled Huntington's Disease, the genetic brain disease that took the life of Woody Guthrie. He continued writing songs and recording them in his attic. Music is part of his therapy and part of his journey. A portion of his music proceeds benefits the Huntington's program at UConn Health Center.

Awards. Back in the late 90s, he appeared at coffee houses and venues throughout New England. He was a finalist in the Boston Acoustic Underground competition and performed on three of the Folk Next Door concert compilations at the University of Hartford CT. Now, back on the road, he has opened for Tom Paxton and appeared at clubs in the northeast. He has won some recent competitions in New England.

Cars. Several of his car-related tunes were on the CarTalk radio show. His song, Peugeot was included on Car Tunes Volume 1: Disrespectful Car Songs. He shared the stage with many artists from the late Bill Morrissey and Robert Earl Keen to Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, and Dar Williams. He performed at Lincoln Center Outdoors Festival, in New York.

Seriously. In addition to his slice-of-life songs, Peter is now mixing the funny with the serious; the romantic with the eccentric. It reflects his recent experiences. His early disc, Love on the Line received a great deal of airplay on college and public radio. Some of his more recent songs feature old friends like Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry. He has also been collaborating with new friends on sites like SoundCloud. He has also covered songs of the British post-punk band, Bent Cousin.
