Pete RG will support Candlebox on their UK tour later this month.
The support slot will be in support of Pete RG’s album Tender Souls, which is available on iTunes now. Pete RG’s band features Adam from Candlebox (double duty) and Dave Krusen (Pearl Jam, Candlebox).
Since its release Tender Souls has been picking up great responses from critics and fans.
Pete RG says, “As a songwriter, I’m always trying to express myself as best I can, lyrically and musically. On Tender Souls I feel I was able to do that without cutting corners or falling back into ambiguity. It’s a really good picture of where I’m at, with a lot of experience under my belt but also a lot of optimism.”
Pete credits Brina Kabler for helping him raise the bar on Tender Souls and on the road.
“She’s my engineer, co-producer, mixer, keyboardist — and my fiancée,” he notes. “Whether onstage or in sessions, we’ve established a great give-and-take, where we learn from each other. We’re very much on the same level in terms of taste and inspiration. She helps me focus on what I do best. Brina is a huge part of everything I do.”
