“Speckled with hints of Neil Diamond, Leonard Cohen and Matt Berninger, RG is blessed to have a voice so unique, so enchanting and so captivating. It is that voice and its intrinsic charisma that will carry RG forward in the months and years to come.” – Absolute Punk
Pete RG’s rich baritone voice is at the center of his distinct sound, one that has reached fruition on his debut full-length, Tender Souls (out now). He hits the UK mid-January 2017 to showcase his latest album Tender Souls in support to fellow U.S. band Candlebox. The band features Adam from Candlebox (double duty) and also Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox).
The album has received some ecstatic responses: In its review of one club date, Pancakes And Whiskey pretty much summarized all that RG offers to his audiences: “high-quality rock with honest and engaging lyrics, a hammering backbeat plus gorgeous harmonies”
Born in Los Angeles to Greek immigrants, Pete RG (nee, Peter Argyropoulos) grew up in a musical household. As working musicians, his parents inspired him to learn a variety of instruments and start playing band gigs while in college. Beginning in 1998 and up into 2007, he was the principal songwriter and lead singer with the popular indie band, Last December.
During that time he also laid the foundation for his solo career, with years of live shows that most recently included a 25 show, Spring 2016 US tour with Candlebox. Now he brings this brand of rich melodic rock to the UK. See full dates below.
