BPEACE busked in New York City's Central Park, selling $5 C.D.'s and stopping tourists eager to pluck a tune out of the BEATLES SongBook :-)
From there, he headed up to Vermont to play the ski circuit - he cut a record called 'The Peace' around this time which had a song played on NPR as well as local and national radio :-) He played with Jon Fishman of Phish at a benefit - he toured the East Coast - the record debuted but a few spots away from Jack Johnson's latest on jambands.com
After performing at colleges and universities nationwide, BPEACE moved to Brooklyn where he cut an EP and hosted an open mic in the Clinton Hill neighborhood before heading out West for nature and fresh air.
BPEACE spent 2011-2014 finding freedom - at times, that came through music and at other times, it came from dwelling in the present moment, being receptive to new opportunities and learning how to be humble and grateful from dusk 'til dawn.
2014 saw BPEACE's return to Vermont as he slowly began to pick up the guitar again and reclaim his passion for his art - after a brief stint back in the saddle on his 'home turf,' a few factors led him to embark on the 3,000 mile journey out to Southern California.
Since 2015, BPEACE has been dipping his toes into the fine music and arts scene which resides in SoCal and San Diego - from playing open mic's with SUBLIME cover tunes to becoming probably the best looping musician in the friggin' county, playing everywhere from the Rancho Bernardo Inn to the Hyatt to the Marriott Grand Marquis and pretty much every other venue in between - all without an agent, I might add - BPEACE is basically the dude who is on the rise.
A new album is in the works - the first proper record since 2009's The Peace - and it looks to be amazing.
