Four albums and 30 years of performing, touring and activism, Pete Kronowitt's songs lie at the juncture where culture and passion clash with politics. Following in the footsteps of folk singers advocating to better humanity, Pete has organized, marched and sang his way across this land. Kronowitt's fourth album, 'A Lone Voice,' re-imagines the protest song, was released in 2016 during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and was recorded and produced in Nashville by Grammy-winning songwriter Phil Madeira. These songs face uncomfortable truths, tackle injustice, poke at the absurdity of extremism, lift the curtain on the strings of media manipulation, and remind us the power of change is always here and now within each of us.
His freshman project, "Phases of the Heart," recorded in 1993, was produced by John Alagia, of Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, and Ben Folds Five fame.

Anti Music Review 8/2/16
Kronowitt is an established Americana artist, a singer, songwriter and guitarist with a penchant for making political statements without conveying anger or preachiness; in fact he generally gets his point across in a fun way.
Rootstime BE (Translated) Review 8/2/16
"Another songwriter from the States making us wonder how in the world he managed to stay under our radar for so long. We can't but wonder about that now that we've been listening over and over again to his new CD...In summary: we have here a man in the prime of his life, who knows what this world is about. He has the ability to cast these in razor sharp and accurate lyrics. He has a sense of melody reminding us of Mellencamp, Springsteen and Earle. Together with this circle of top musicians he produced a beautiful new album."
