***Singer/Songwriter: Peter Mayer
Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of “folk” and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. In college he studied theology and music and then spent two years in seminary. Afterward he took a part-time job as a church music director while performing at clubs and colleges, and writing and recording his music. In 1995, he quit his job and started performing full-time. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has ten albums to his credit, and has sold over 80 thousand of them independently.

***Singer/Songwriter: Tim Cheesebrow
His latest album, “Somebody, Somewhere,” was released last fall. It’s a collection of driving beats and catchy tunes that ride the line between rock and country. Based in St. Paul, Tim brings a distinctly Midwestern sound to his songwriting. Honest lyrics sung over big wide-open melodies and energetic grooves will leave you saying, “well now … that’s not too bad, don’chaknow?”
Tim has been performing for over 20 years. Using his degree in music composition from St. John’s University, five full-length solo albums, hundreds of shows performed annually, and an entrepreneurial spirit, he’s supporting a family of five with his lifelong passion for creating music. This foundation of experience allows him to help young people find their place in the music industry.
He’s a steadfast advocate of the arts, education and social justice causes. Tim founded Discover Music, a nonprofit that uses the power of music to positively impact the lives of underserved student populations. Privately he’s working with elected officials to make needed changes in the MN education system. He supports other local nonprofits with music, graphic design and strategic consulting work. He is an active member of the Minnesota music community, working behind the scenes to create opportunities for growth, professional development and charity for fellow music professionals and young aspiring artists.
