Pete Mancini got his start as the frontman and songwriter of Butchers Blind, a critically acclaimed rock band from NYC. In 2017 he released his debut solo album Foothill Freeway, which explored the Americana influences that were a hallmark of his former band. The album garnered rave reviews from NPR, No Depression and Newsday. He hit the road to support the album and made his network television debut on NBC’s Today in Nashville.
His second full length album Flying First Class was released in 2019. The album was met with critical acclaim and made Mancini’s debut appearance on the AMA radio charts. Extensive tours of the East Coast, Midwest and South followed, establishing Mancini as a national artist.
In the Summer of 2020, Mancini flew down to Dial Back Sound in Water Valley MS to begin work on his third album, Killing The Old Ways. The 10 song album, produced by Matt Patton (Drive By Truckers) and Bronson Tew, marks a significant artistic leap forward. The album features contributions from Jay Gonzalez (Drive By Truckers), Jamison Hollister, Schaefer Llana and Horace Willis.
Over the years, Mancini has opened for acts such as Jimmy Webb, Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Pure Prairie League, Robbie Fulks, Amy Helm, Larry Campbell & Theresa Williams, Kevin Gordon, and Iain Matthews. Pete is also a member of The Famous Doctor Scanlon Band, which performs the music of Travis McKeveny.
