I am really excited for this interview. My guest this week is Peter Eldridge.
Peter has remained at the forefront of both the singer-songwriter and jazz realms as a vocalist, pianist, composer, and arranger. His new album MY MUSEUM was released on March 15 and is available on his website petereldridge.com
