For years Peter Eldridge has remained at the forefront of both the singer-songwriter and jazz realms as a vocalist, pianist, composer, and arranger. He has five critically acclaimed albums under his belt: Fool No More, Stranger in Town, Decorum, Mad Heaven and Disappearing Day, the last of which was released on Sunnyside Records and called “an out and out masterpiece” by allaboutjazz. Most recently Peter and iconic jazz pianist and composer Kenny Werner joined forces on Somewhere, a collection of lush ballads for voice, string orchestra and jazz trio. The album, a combination of original compositions and timeless classics has garnered rave reviews thus far and plans are in the works to tour the project when it is safe to tour again.
Eldridge is also a founding member of internationally acclaimed vocal group, New York Voices. The group continues to tour internationally and has performed in some of the world’s most preeminent venues and festivals, including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, and the Kennedy Center. NYV has been involved in two Grammy winning projects with Paquito D’Rivera and the Count Basie Orchestra.
On the more contemporary side, Peter is also a member of the vocal group MOSS, alongside Kate McGarry, Theo Bleckmann, Lauren Kinhan and Luciana Souza (and now vocalist Jo Lawry). In addition, Peter was head of the Manhattan School of Music’s jazz voice department for eighteen years and is now Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
