The band has an amazing resume. You've probably heard their music even if the name isn't instantly familiar (it will be):
The Pete Kilpatrick Band hails from the music mecca of the northeast, Portland, Maine. They have been writing, recording, and performing regularly since 2004 and have released six independent albums to date including their most recent, Heavy Fire (2012). They have been named Maine’s best act four times in the Portland Best Music Awards and have performed over 1,000 shows since their formation, sharing the stage with such notable acts as Dave Matthews Band, David Gray, Jason Mraz, Ray Lamontagne, Guster, Amos Lee, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Brett Dennen, The Wailers, Dawes, Blues Traveler, and DJ Logic, among countless others.
The thought that my books inspired another artist to interpret and riff on its themes is so amazing and gratifying. The song is fantastic (I can't wait to hear it live). Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
And buy the album! If you can't find it locally, you can download it next month; it'll be available on iTunes on April 24.
As if this song isn't cool enough, here's something that really blows my mind. "Trespasser" was mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig of Gateway Studios, the man who cut Janis Joplin's "Me and Bobby McGee," Led Zeppelin II and Houses of the Holy, most of the Band's famous recordings, and almost all of Bruce Springsteen's entire catalog of songs—among many others. Humbling, like I said.
