About 'Songs in the Key of Me':
Greg Peterson is a man who lives his life vicariously through show tunes. A staple diet of torch songs and production numbers naturally inspired this ARIA award-winner to serve up his own platter of musical morsels. The stunning vocals of Adam Bianco and Samantha Du Rennes join forces with the incomparable Danny Forward on piano to bring this original songbook to life. Witty, moving, and 100 percent gluten free, 'Songs in the Key of Me' gives its regards to Broadway with a tip of the bowler hat and a tap of the cane.
