artist info

Legendary Percussionist Pete Escovedo is an artist who broke down the barriers between Smooth Jazz, Salsa, Latin Jazz and contemporary music. His name has been synonymous in the music industry for more than 50 years. Pete is known worldwide for his live performances, session work and solo albums.

As a young boy he would sit on the steps of nightclubs and watch musicians play. Music became his outlet. When he was 15 years old he began to also sketch and paint on wood or cardboard. Anything he could get his hands on, he would start to draw. Pete did not know that his love for music and art combined would change his life forever. And this is how it began.

Most recently, he’s written and released his personal account of his life as a musician, artist, and patriarch of his musical family in his new memoir, My Life in the Key of E. This has been a dream of his that has taken 5 years to manifest, and one that he earnestly wants to share with all his fans, friends and family.

In his memoir, My Life in the Key of E, Escovedo describes the ups and downs of his extraordinary life and career, starting with his early years navigating family disconnection and poverty. He then artfully narrates his more than six decades as a devoted family-man nurturing his musical progeny, while he also chronicles key moments in his own ground breaking musical career. And along the way, he provides a fascinating depiction of his collaborative adventures with some of the very best in musical history. It's a thoughtful and revealing look into the life of a musical icon, as well as a vulnerable exploration of the private questions, yearnings, costs and victories that can accompany the passionate pursuit of an artist's dreams.
