Pete RG shares video for "Let It All Go," tours (2015)

At the core of Pete RG’s rustic yet soulful sound is a voice that reflects on the passing of time. While this notion is present throughout the singer-songwriter’s latest effort Lightning Strikes (out February 10), RG’s frustration with wasting time away is best captured in the song “Let It All Go,” a lyric video for which Under The Gun Review  recently premiered.

Shot in one take, the video follows RG’s point of view as he sees the lyrics to “Let It All Go” appear on office supplies scattered throughout a workplace setting. “My personal studio shares a building with a few offices,” explains RG about the video’s location. “It’s the perfect reflection on how we get so wrapped up in daily routines that we often need to remind ourselves to just let go and live life.” Lightning Strikes was recorded and mixed primarily at RG’s Santa Monica, CA studio, while additional tracking and mixing was done by renowned engineer Brian Scheuble (U2, Elton John, Sheryl Crow). The album finds the former frontman of Last December once again collaborating heavily with multi-instrumentalist /co-producer Brina Kabler, who RG refers to as his “musical Swiss Army Knife.” RG’s solo efforts also find him working closely with drummer Scotty Kormos and bassist Adam Kury. “I wanted Last December to capture all the feelings and subtleties that I felt when I played the songs by myself,” recalls RG. “Now, I want to reveal as little as possible about myself while working with a band. I want Scotty and Adam to run as far as they can and take me somewhere else.  It’s a much more fun and rewarding process than the earlier days.” RG will be touring extensively in the U.S. in support of the EP with Kabler, Kury and lead guitarist Noah Lebenzon. While Kormos won’t be able to join RG on the road due to previous commitments, filling in will be Pearl Jam’s original drummer Dave Krusen.
