PETER MATTHEW BAUER
Peter Matthew Bauer is an American singer and recording artist born in 1978 in Washington DC. He has had a strange, storied and original career. A founder of seminal New York art rock band the Walkmen, he released 6 full length albums with the band before his first solo LP Liberation! in 2014 on Mexican Summer. His second record Mount Qaf (Divine Love) was released in late 2017. The album reflects a decades long focus on his esoteric work as a writer and astrologer, drawing influence from different schools of eastern philosophy along with the work of Carl Jung, Alejandro Jodorowsky and the western phenomenologist and Islamic scholar Henry Corbin.
Concurrently, Peter moved to Los Angeles and founded a record label and artist management company called Fortune Tellers, representing an eclectic roster of artists including Starcrawler, Lushlife, Matt Costa & Liily and releasing albums from others such as Lushlife, Caveman & Caroline Kingsbury.
