Peter Eldridge is a Master.
A masterful singer and musician, a masterful arranger, a masterful creator and composer, a masterful lyricist, a masterful teacher and nevertheless a masterful human being. In his online class Peter shared his wisdom with great generosity. It was very inspiring, great fun (what more can you ask for?) and I can highly recommend working with Peter! Go catch him!

New Release #2 Peter Eldridge/Kenny Werner Somewhere
Vocal Release #3 New York Voices Reminiscing in Tempo
Hey - this is pretty cool ! Honored to share a magazine cover (my first!) with Kenny Werner and our ‘Somewhere’ project. And as always, thanks and love to Eugene Friesen, Matt Aronoff, Yoron Israel, George Garzone, the string orchestra, and the mighty Ann Braithwaite, Jean Charles Lignel, Rosebud Music, and Margie Farmer. This project was a labor of love from all involved. Hope you can feel that aspect in the music.
An Evening of Elegance
… of lush strings and gorgeous harmonies.
It’s Peter Eldridge, his sensuous, velvet tones and deep storytelling and Kenny Werner’s divine arrangements.
Somewhere. It’s American elegance not heard or seen
since Fred Astaire donned a top hat!… Classic, soulful ballads and stories, including songs by Peter Eldridge,
Kenny Werner, Ivan Lins, Leonard Bernstein and others.
A few words from Peter ...I have been working on an album of beautiful ballads set for voice and full string orchestra – titled “Somewhere” – with arrangements by the inimitable Kenny Werner (this is a project Kenny and I have been talking about doing for about a decade) . Kenny has truly outdone himself orchestrating these songs (his string writing is just incredible). Some tunes by me, some by Kenny, and a few well-known classics.

Singer/songwriter and musical alchemist Peter Eldridge teams up with piano legend Kenny Werner on his latest album, Somewhere. This new LP also includes a 20-piece string orchestra conducted by cellist Eugene Friesen, and a sound that pairs timeless romanticism with sophisticated modern harmony in a program of classic standards and clever originals.
…sophisticated arrangements…It’s lush ...and always classy…
Peter Eldridge’s baritone timbre, used with elegant delicacy,
greatly enhances this impression…clever and distinguished music…
