REVIEWS:

” I have listened with great joy … This is excellent work… Peter Calo’s “Time Machine” is optly named, as these wonderful songs and their delicious and masterful musicality take us both through the past and into the future… And know “Every Ordinary Day” is my current favorite… ;)” -Michael McGlone Actor/Writer/Musician Hi Peter, I’m listening to your album, and I love the mix of styles, The unselfconcious vocals, and the smart lyrics! I especially love “Elephants Never Forget”. It’s a deep, lyrical and soulful 60s Rock/Pop song. I hear it in a movie. I hope many ears get to relish your work. Your faithful songwriter, Sophie B. Hawkins Your CD sounds fantastic. Your singing, the arrangements, the mixes. It’s got great songs done to perfection. I LOVE “Don’t Ever Go Away”, – there have been a few times when I just found myself singing it in the shower. It’s a great song. And “Ordinary Day” is a classic. And “Sail Away” – well, it’s stunningly beautiful! Really stunning. Ok, “Elephant” may be my absolute favorite song of yours ever. And this track is so, so great. And “If My Heart Was Yours” is so catchy, you can’t keep still when you hear it, and you go away with it bouncing in your head. I never heard you sound better. And, “Do I Love You Too Much” is terrific.” April Martin, singer, songwriter “The guitar playing and interpretive skill of Peter Calo is a rare and stunning natural occurrence, like a meteor shower on a magical night on the prairie, or viewing the moon setting slowly on the ocean’s far horizon. Like those things, this album is a gift to be savored and treasured.” – Richard Barone producer
