After experiencing the West Coast, Pete returned to his hometown of Philadelphia, PA, in August of 2004, where he started to perform in local bars, restaurants, and coffee houses with several aspiring musicians.
He later arranged his first acoustic demo, “Reflections.” In January of 2007, Pete moved to Kailua, HI, where he worked as a line cook. A year went by and he left Hawaii artistically enriched with a more fully developed sound. He then completed his second set of acoustic recordings entitled “No-Frills."
Pete has also resided in Ocean Isle Beach, NC, and Brisbane, Australia. He has visited Thailand, Bali, Anguilla, Germany, and Ireland, where he was invited to share the stage with local bands. His desire for travel and perspective continues to have a major influence on his songwriting. Pete hopes that his music will encourage his listeners to seek culture and creativity.
In the Fall of 2013 Pete Groch made his debut as an independent artist releasing his first extended play production. Pete's songs tell stories of his journeys and everyday encounters in a style that is optimistic and uplifting. Finding inspiration through great music, simple living, and a year in San Diego, CA, he began to search for his own blend of rhythm, tone, and rhyme.
