St Paul Peterson's Life and Music Blog

Will the Songwriter Survive? 

Hey all, Paul Peterson here, 

I’ve been a songwriter for over 25 years, and have had some nice covers in my career.  I have made nice living as well; that is until the streaming services took over.

I am anxious for someone (possibly one of my students) to come up with a business model that the public will embrace, so that creatives like myself and the next generation can earn a living.

I just read an article about superstar Pharrell and his song “Happy.” According to the Business Insider, his song was… Read more

Bu Bye 2014.....Oh hi there, 2015 (part 1) 

Hey all, St Paul Peterson here.  First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!  

I am writing this from my balcony, or lanai in Lahaina, HI where I am vacationing with my wife, 2 adult daughters and my brother and sister-in-law.  Every couple of years I come here to re-prioritize and reflect, and this year is no different.  

2014:

As I celebrate my 35th year in the music business, and my 50th year on the planet, I took a look back on what I got accomplished this year; mostly because I want to see if all the effort is worth… Read more

St. Paul Peterson playing with Steve Cole

Dakota, 1010 Nicollet Ave So, Mpls

 

St Paul Peterson joins Saxophonist Steve Cole, and his brother Ricky Peterson and sister Patty Peterson at the Dakota.
More on Steve Cole: Saxophonist Steve Cole is one of the most celebrated players in contemporary jazz.

The Chicago native exploded onto the scene in 1998 with the album “Stay Awhile” that was produced by fellow Chicagoan Brian Culbertson. The disc scored two #1 hits and earned Cole the Oasis Smooth Jazz Award for best new artist shortly before his sophomore set, “Between Us,” was released in 2000. His catchy singles made him an instant radio favorite and he cranked them out with regularity on subsequent albums “NY LA” (2003), “Spin” (2005) and “True” (2006).

In addition to his work as solo artist, Steve has performed/recorded, with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Boz Scaggs, Larry Carlton, Jeff Lorber, Jim Peterik, Freddie Cole, Cyrus Chestnut, and KMFDM, and has been a featured soloist with the City of Prague Orchestra, and The Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Steve is also a founding member of The Sax Pack, a stellar sax trio completed by Marcus Anderson and Jeff Kashiwa.

In the 15 years since the release of his debut record, saxophonist Steve Cole has traveled full-circle creatively and arrived back home on his new release, “Pulse,” a 10-song set mixing R&B, contemporary jazz, gospel, blues and pop that he produced with fellow saxman David Mann. The new collection surveying Cole’s musical passions showcases the artist’s affinity for infectious melodies, a wall of horns, and soulful grooves.
