Pete Herzog

Genre:  Blues

Pete Herzog is a singer / songwriter from Medford, OR. Pete ‘s unique sound comes from his ability reach back through the ages and find a common sound that touches all people at a basic level. Even when composing a contemporary song he strives to make those connections. Born in the city but living most of his life in the country, he relates strongly with rural music, delta and country blues and the roots of bluegrass and jug band styles and just a touch of Hawaiian flavor.  For Pete, the blues have always been more than three chords and twelve bars, but a means to tell a story. As a retired railroad worker, the experience of timing, beat and rhythm are all very precise in his music and permeates his performances. Pete employs several different guitars with varied arrays of sound capabilities from acoustic to slide guitar. Pete splits his time between Southern Oregon and the Big Island of Hawaii. Pete continues to tour up and down the West Coast and beyond.  Pete is available as a solo artist, duo known as ‘Snake Fat’, and with a full band to accommodate any requirements. He is a truly talented artist that should not be missed.
