Pete Muller’s latest album, Two Truths and A Lie, reflects his unusual journey. While he was achieving success as a pioneer in quant investing, he was also singing his songs to tough-hearted New York City subway audiences. In beautifully composed and rendered material, Muller’s warm vocals and heartfelt songs inform Two Truths and a Lie. The album opens with “Kindred Soul,” its unfurling piano informing a mystical song about longing. Written before Muller met his wife (he is now happily married with two kids), the song contains the line “I don’t know why I cannot find someone to ride with me through this crazy life.” The music video, featuring a girl in a hot dog costume roaming the streets of New York and California, highlights both the uniqueness and universality of our search for love…along with Pete’s quirky and infectious sense of humor!
Produced by Rick DePofi (whose credits include Rosanne Cash’s Grammy-winning The River & The Thread), Two Truths and a Lie is filled with intimate songs that capture audiences on first listen. Muller is joined on the recording by his long-standing trio members Skip Ward on bass and Kyle Rowland on drums.
“There are times in your life when you’re in flow,” Muller says, “when there is nothing but joy and love in your heart, and everything feels like it is meant to be. You’re completely relaxed, but energized and aware at the same time. To me, success in life is about being in that state as often as possible.”
