“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

"The warmth of a troubadour brought up on the traveling spirit songs of The Boss, and other canonical idols brings about a spark that rests in a kind of a warm subtle glow with a brightness to entrance the glass windows of a lantern."
-Impose Magazine

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, released on September 23rd. To accompany the announcement, RG shares the earnest title track.

"As a songwriter, I’m always trying to express myself as best I can, lyrically and musically," RG says. "On Tender Souls I feel I was able to do that without cutting corners or falling back into ambiguity. It’s a really good picture of where I’m at, with a lot of experience under my belt but also a lot of optimism."

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 50+ show 2016-17 US tour with Candlebox. 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."
Night Spins
Night Spins
Garage pop laced with New York City grit, dark humor, and rock 'n' roll attitude. Born out of the American South, the first seeds for the group were planted when Josh Brocki and Manquillian Minniefee started messing around on guitar in high school down in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Fast forward to 2014: Josh and Manq, now living in Brooklyn, joined forces with Dallas, Texas-hailing Jesse Starr and Andrew "Ace" Jernigan to create Night Spins (FKA The Boobies). Calling upon their experience working at burlesque clubs, circus shows, and raunchy variety clubs across NYC, the four-piece band melds its theatrical background with influences like Iggy Pop, Modest Mouse, and David Byrne for an unrivaled—and must-see—display of contemporary showmanship. So what does that sound like? Sizzling riffs, earworm hooks, raw vocals—all imbued with a Southern-bred shake of the supernatural. Fans who go to see Night Spins know one thing: They're gonna get a show.
