“Guess I colored a bit outside the lines but that's me,” Peter says, after returning an email interview with some unconventional answers. It’s an apt description of his own career, which started in the subways of Boston and on the streets of Dublin and has seen Mulvey through 25 years as a recording artist. His journey has been marked by departures from the norm: an album recorded in the Boston subways; annual tours by bicycle; performing Tom Waits’ uncategorizable album ‘Rain Dogs’ live; 12-hour live performances in person and on the internet, often for worthy beneficiaries; and an album of spoken-word letters to his young nieces and nephews. Twenty-five years in and still fired up, he traveled to New Orleans to record his latest, ‘Are You Listening?’ with Ani DiFranco producing at her Big Blue studio. In February, DiFranco Tweeted, “Can’t wait for folks to hear it! What a beaut this one is, what a joy it was to make.”
‘Are You Listening?’ is his Righteous Babe Records debut with a March 24, 2017 release. As DiFranco says, "Mulvey has been honing his craft for many a decade and it shows. He can play some badass guitar, sing to touch your heart, and write a song that will knock you down – and by knock you down, I mean lift you up."
Mulvey is an iconoclast within the singer/songwriter world. Restless and inventive, he has made seventeen records, spanning rock and roll, folk, Tin Pan Alley, spoken word, and Americana. His spoken word piece “Vlad the Astrophysicist,” which arose from a conversation at his recurring gig at the National Youth Science Camp, became a TEDx talk and then, in 2016, an illustrated book. In 2007, he began an annual late summer tour by bicycle instead of by car or airplane – the 10th annual bicycle tour will happen this September. He has also taught songwriting and guitar workshops at the Swannanoa Gathering and at various folk festivals across the U.S.
NPR Music’s Bob Boilen has called his music “beautiful…. touching.”
Rolling Stone.com hailed his music ”haunting... A voice lush and hushed that occasionally sinks into a whisper."
The Washington Post said, "The subtle power of his voice, a husky, hushed baritone... understated, at once sophisticated and intimate ... song as cover-worthy as Randy Newman or Elvis Costello."
