Three-time Grammy nominee, Peter Cases work sets the bar for authenticity, passion and imagination and spans a number of genres, including folk, blues, and rock. Raised in Buffalo, NY, Case came to the Bay area in 1973 and worked as a street musician and played in the seminal power pop group The Nerves, before moving to Los Angeles to form the Plimsouls, landing a deal with Geffen Records.
The Plimsouls achieved success with the hit single A Million Miles Away, which landed them a role in the movie Valley Girl, as the band performing during the club scenes. Cases 1986 solo Geffen Record debut revealed deep roots in folk and blues, and earned him his first Grammy nomination for the song Old Blue Car as well as the Number 1 spot on the NY Times 1986 Best CDs list. Six CDs later, Case earned another nomination for Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John, a remarkable collection of songs that features Cases voice and a single guitar. Its clear that Case is a major talent on the Americana troubadour landscape.
Cases 2010 CD, Wig!, emphasized the rock and blues side of Cases repertoire, while 2007s Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John demonstrates what Case can do with just his voice and a guitar. With or without a backing band, Case delivers his songs with both intense passion and introspective nuance.
