Peter Matthew Bauer is an American singer and recording artist born in 1978 in Washington DC. A founder of seminal New York art rock band the Walkmen, he released 6 full length albums with the band before his first solo LP "Liberation!" in 2014.
Concurrently, Peter moved to Los Angeles and founded two organizations: the artist management/production label Fortune Tellers Music and the Laurel Canyon Center For Consciousness Studies, focusing on his esoteric work as a writer and astrologer and drawing influence from different schools of eastern philosophy along with the work of Carl Jung, Alejandro Jodorowsky and the western phenomenologist and Islamic scholar Henry Corbin.
Peter's second LP "Mount Qaf (Divine Love)" is due out November 10, 2017. It is described as 10 esoteric love songs and is a strangely primitive and direct rock & roll performance that goes beyond genre into something more contemporary and strange. Co-produced by Nick Stumpf (French Kicks, Caveman, NVDES), it is driven both by Peter's own synchronistic outlook on life, as well as the discovery of a worn out copy of a Henry Corbin book on the Sufi master Ib’n Arabi. The songs arise from a central idea of human love and poetic insight seen as a literal shift from concrete objective reality into a further dimension, a transitory realm of light and imagination that supersedes all forms of fundamentalism and rationality.
