Green Arthur (Peter Dorrien Traisci) hails from New Fairfield, Connecticut and had a childhood that he still cherishes today. Peter’s parents routinely filled the house with classic records from a variety of artists – James Taylor, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Carly Simon. These early musical experiences helped shape his music into what it is today.
Having released his first official single, “Breaker Boy”, to a great reception last year, the rising musician, who is now based in Newport, Rhode Island, is back with his new single and first release of 2023, “Pine Needles”. Drawing from a wide range of influences – Blur, Pavement, Alvvays, Conor Oberst – Green Arthur has one goal when writing and recording: to create music that moves people. It’s safe to say he’s more than succeeded with “Pine Needles”. The track, which was originally released by Isaac Alexander, stands out with its eerie production and Green Arthur’s captivating vocal performance.
Speaking further on the new release, Green Arthur says, “‘Pine Needles’ was written by a good friend and collaborator, Isaac Alexander. The song indirectly tells the real-life story of a tragedy that occurred in Arkansas many years ago. The song resonates with me as it deals with grief and loss, which everyone experiences at one time or another. I think the emotion of the lyric is reflected in the production of my version.”
Making such a huge impression with only his third release, it’ll be exciting to see what else he has in store as more music is expected in the coming months, and surely he’ll be one to watch. “Pine Needles” is available to buy/stream now on all platforms.
