Born out of the wonderfully peculiar Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Peter Stone has cultivated a unique blend of alternative and folk music. His intimate, autobiographical songwriting lends itself to a feeling of closeness, drawing in listeners to witness his distinct perspective. He has lived in apartments, vans, tents, hostels, from Boston to Oregon to Los Angeles, picking up a layer of road dust which coats his reflective, balanced take on the American songwriting tradition. The musical output of his band The Rare Occasions has generated over 1.5 million streams online, and he has been found sharing the stage with the likes of Guster, Dr. John, Dirty Heads, AJR, and Yoke Lore. He continues to craft emotive, thought provoking songs dealing with conflict, voyages, love, and loss. Now, he has returned to his native Pennsylvania and is preparing solo material for release.
