Summer vacation?

Naw, not so much. Probably the world's crummiest blogger, knowing there's no excuse like no excuse to keep from writing.

Plus I'm back on Facebook, and that's a big ol' time vampire... if you need to know my status updates....

Actually, I did have a nice summer. I put out a cool album with Chris, do you have it yet? We did some shows, played on the radio a couple times too. (There are more coming up, so if you've missed us so far, you still have more chances to miss us down the line.) Some rock gigs with Luego around town. I started my kids' shows again at the Regulator Bookshop in Durham. Finally got my father's ashes interred in the cemetery in Hudson, NY. Got to play with my little kids a lot. Some of this stuff is unfamiliar to me, having been a touring summer dad for many years.

I have good news, though. Thanks to the nice people at Arbor Ridge, I am about to launch my for real website at in about a week. It looks beautiful, is completely navigable, will be mostly staffed by myself and is bound to get spammed hard very soon after 'going live'. Don't try to go there now, it'll just take you back here again.

But now that I have your attention, watch this space for details!

The songs on OBP are from the catalog of The dB's but given new and interesting treatments by Chris and me. I've been working in The Hit Shed, my home studio, over the months, writing a

CANCELLED - the new Bandcamp single by PETER HOLSAPPLE - released today, December 3, 2021

  Today, December 3, 2021, I have released a new single on Bandcamp entitled CANCELLED.  Just to be clear, the song is called CANCELLED. There was some question on social media whether the release had BEEN cancelled, which it had not, as it was just released.  Or dropped, if you can do that with ephemeral stuff like downloads. You can buy it here .  And you can watch my lyric video here . I hope you like it.  Remember I'm heading out on a house concert tour in March, so come to a show in your neck of the woods!

House concerts, anyone?

Hi everyone, I'd like to take this opportunity to write to you about performing a house concert in your area (maybe even in your own home). Last week, I was able to enlist the invaluable services of Tina Dunn to book a tour of house concerts in early March of 2022. Tina is encouraging potential house concert hosts for me to contact her either on her Facebook page or her email . Right now, I'm also trying to come up with some bonus incentives for house concert attendees. Beer coozies are probably out, but possibly handwritten copies of my lyrics? My penmanship is still fairly excellent. I'm also going to put together a 'house concert special' CD for these show that will 'represent' the format I play in, AND you can play it in your car CD player on the way home! My plan is to play out as much as I can, as many places as I can for as long as I can and as long as there are people who want to hear me. Thanks again for staying interested in my music
