P.J. Pacifico has built a name for himself over the past few years, gaining credibility in indie singer-songwriter circles for his serene and thoughtful brand of introspective folk and pop music. Pacifico is a fan and critic’s favorite, and has even earned the admiration of club owners across the U.S. and closer to home in Fairfield County. He tours Europe at least once a year, with radio play in the Netherlands (Radio 1, 3FM) and the U.K. (BBC radio).

Over the past couple of years, Pacifico has evolved from a beloved, under-the-radar, Connecticut-based road warrior to an international-profile indie. Reviewers compare his music to that of Paul Simon, James Taylor and Matthew Sweet. His music is generally in an introspective and emotional style

He has released a number of solo albums on Viper Records in the styles of rock, pop and folk. His newest EP, “Overlooking the Obvious,” features collaborations with songwriters Stephen Kellogg and Garrison Starr, and guest musicians from “The Alternate Routes.”

“I was a singing drummer in my Norwalk high school band, “The Front.” We thought we were “R.E.M.” meets “The Replacements,” said Pacifico. “When it came time to go to college, I couldn’t really bring my drum kit to my dorm room, so I got an acoustic guitar for high school graduation. I learned some basic chords…and then took a stab at writing my own tunes.” He graduated from the University of Hartford with a bachelor’s degree in acting.

After being signed to Viper Records, his first release was the studio LP, “Well I’ll Be,” which came out digitally and on CD in 2005. Perhaps you are one of the lucky ones who have heard Pacifico perform. If not, this is your chance to enjoy an up and coming American singer-songwriter. Come celebrate his latest release with great company on a beautiful summer evening.

“It is the artist who can make you forget all the work that went into creating what you are hearing that is the true artist. Pacifico makes it seem easy.” – Seattle Post Intelligencer
