Detroit-born, Chicago-bred, L.A. based singer-songwriter Petey released his second studio album, USA, via Capitol Records on September 22nd. The 12-track USA collection is his major label debut. To mark the occasion, Petey will be enjoying the great American pastime as he throws out the first pitch at this afternoon’s Cubs vs. Rockies game at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
Recorded mainly at Gold-Diggers Sound in L.A. with co-producers Aidan Christopher Spiro and John DeBold, USA came to life with equal parts intention and spontaneity.
“For me making music has always been like throwing spaghetti at the wall, and working with John and Aidan allowed me to be reckless and experimental while giving each song the care it deserved,” says Petey, who plays guitar, bass, drums, and synth on USA. “It helped me fulfill the only real goal I had for the album, which was to make sure every single song would be super-fun to play live.”
Petey will be bringing his USA tour to 10 states (and one Canadian province), beginning with a November 3 show at Terminal West in Atlanta. The headline run will include shows at NYC’s Irving Plaza (November 11) and The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (December 6).
