Peter Case is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and producer, a mighty fine guitarist and a well-reviewed published author and yet, he's most at home on the stage. For 25 years, Peter, his guitar and his songs have mesmerized audiences from coast to coast, whether holding down a festival crowd, warming up the place for luminaries like Jackson Browne and John Prine or headlining his own nightclub shows—of which he can claimed to have logged thousands.
As leader of the Plimsouls, and as a member of the groundbreaking punk era trio the Nerves and duo the Breakaways, Case earned his four stars a long time ago, while new generations continue to discover his unique amalgam of sound (2010 saw successful reisussues on all three bands). His songs have been featured on the hit TV series True Blood, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood.
Playing a blend of vintage rock 'n' roll, blues, traditional and contemporary folk, and soul, he remains an original modern troubadour. He's passionate about writing songs and connecting to real audiences, no matter the size. He regularly tours the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe, and his hardcore fans everywhere bring a deep connection to the songs and to the artist. Wig! His latest recording for Yep Roc was his eleventh solo album. The Case Files, his twelfth, was a compilation of rare and unreleased studio and live recordings, and was released on Alive/Naturalsound Records.
Peter Case's songs have been recorded by: James McMurtey, Dave Alvin, Chris Smither, Alejandro Escovedo, Robert Earle Keen, Hayes Carll, The Flaming Groovies, The Goo Goo Dolls, John Prine, Maura O'Connell and many others. On stage he's performed with John Prine, Richard Thompson, Mavis Staples, Tom Petty, R.E.M., Merle Haggard, T Bone Burnett, Gordon Lightfoot, Sir George Martin, Steve Earle, Los Lobos, John Hiatt, Bobby Womack, Jackson Brown, Bonnie Raitt, Dave Alvin, John Doe, Phil Lynott, Stan Ridgway, and many others.
