With the demise of the CDBaby store, we’ve moved our online CD sales to BullMoose.com

Kiss Me Quick is a collection of duets, written and recorded here at home on the coast of Maine.

Luminous Darkness – Parker Gray. A new recording of spoken and sung interpretations of poems from Peter’s collection “Big Mercy.” Parker Gray is Peter’s duo with keyboardist Harvey Jones. Meanwhile, we are both in the studio working on new projects. Peter has recorded new songs with The Real Band; Annie has a new solo project in the works.


Reach For It – Peter Gallway and The Real Band… When we moved to Maine, in 2018, Peter reconnected with musicians from an earlier incarnation of The Real Band that he performed with in the 70s and 80s. Now The Real Band is Mark Wainer on guitar and Andrea Re on vocals and percussion. This record is spare and full. And danceable.

Bookish – Annie’s solo, live-in-the-studio collection of twelve new songs. She says “I’m sidelined from performing because of chronic Lyme, so I made this recording to sound the way these songs would sound if I were able to play them in concert.”


Our seventh CD, Cold Smoke, is out and available at CDBaby

And... we've relocated to the central coast of Maine. Beautiful.
