 Tender Souls reminds me of the best of Euro-80s melodic rock." - Radio Informer
"With Heaven Knows," he drops a pop-influenced burst of cowpunk ferocity that's sure to rattle the bones in your body and inspire some truly wild dreams." - Nooga 
“Speckled with hints of Neil Diamond, Leonard Cohen and Matt Berninger, RG is blessed to have a voice so unique, so enchanting and so captivating. It is that voice and its intrinsic charisma that will carry RG forward in the months and years to come.” - Absolute Punk
“The warmth of a troubadour brought up on the traveling spirit songs of The Boss, and other canonical idols, brings about a spark that rests in a kind of a warm subtle glow with a brightness to entrance the glass windows of a lantern.” - Impose Mag

July 21, 2016 – Pete RG’s rich baritone voice is at the center of his distinct sound, one that has reached fruition on his debut full-length, Tender Soulsout September 23. To accompany the announcement, RG shares the lyric video for the earnest title track.

“As a songwriter, I’m always trying to express myself as best I can, lyrically and musically,” RG says. “On Tender SoulsI 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.”

RG 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 fiancee,” 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.”

Born in Los Angeles to Greek immigrants, Pete RG (nee, Peter Argyropoulos) grew up in a musical household. As working musicians, his parents inspired him to learn a variety of instruments and start playing band gigs while in college. Beginning in 2002 and up into 2007, he was the principal songwriter and lead singer with the popular indie band, Last December.

During that time he also laid the foundation for his solo career, with years of live shows that most recently included a 20 show, Fall 2016 US tour. In its review of one club date, Pancakes And Whiskey pretty much summarized all that RG offers to his audiences: “high-quality rock with honest and engaging lyrics, a hammering backbeat plus gorgeous harmonies."
