Peter Case says he is primarily a songwriter who uses all the American styles to get his point across: blues, rock, country, soul and folk. He is a folk singer, rocker and punk. He also had his hand in that whole new-wave thing.

Case dropped out of school and started playing music in the local bars of his hometown in upstate New York and ended up in San Francisco, playing on the streets, in 1973. Case formed the new-wave band the Nerves, and their single "Hanging on the Telephone" was later recorded by Blondie.

Case then moved to Los Angeles and formed the pop-rock band the Plimsouls in 1980. After that band broke up, Case struck out as a solo act and released his first album in 1986. Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the album featured a treasure of guest artists, including Gurf Morlix, John Hiatt, Jim Keltner, Roger McGuinn and Van Dyke Parks.

Case has released 10 albums since and a three-disc tribute album "A Case for Case" was issued in 2006.

Case is an adept solo acoustic guitar player and his lively set includes his own "Words in Red" plus Bob Dylan's "Long Time Gone" and Robert Johnson's classic "Steady Rolling Man."
