Peter Mulvey On Songwriting, Gathering Around Music
The restrictions of COVID-19 have brought Peter Mulvey closer to his purpose as a musician. Social distancing and the widespread transition to digital platforms has heightened a recognition Mulvey says he’s always felt: “the most good I’ve done in the world has been to give people a reason to gather together”.

Mulvey explains the changes in his songwriting process, including possibilities for collaboration with fans through a weekly writing group. He examines his position as a role model with the responsibility to promote safety, as well as the new and delightful opportunities he has had to bring people closer through music.
