WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Longtime New Yorker Peter Salett happily returns to Joe's Pub. Salett has released five albums on his own Dusty Shoes Music label, and has become well known in the film world for both movie scoring and writing songs for movies. He wrote, arranged and performed songs for Universal Pictures' "Role Models"; and he wrote songs for characters to sing in Universal's "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", (Dracula puppet musical anyone?), executive produced by Judd Apatow. He co-scored the 2008 HBO documentary "Cat Dancers", which won the SXSW Special Jury Prize, and scored Cannes Film Festival selection "Down in the Valley", starring Edward Norton. Sweet Song Records has just released "The Carriage House Sessions", a duet record from Peter and Grammy nominated jazz pianist Larry Goldings. This January his song "Endless Orange Sky" was included on the "By the People, the Election of Barack Obama" soundtrack inspired by the HBO movie, along with songs by Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, and more.
