Statement by Peter Wise about “Window Dressing”
I wrote this song two months ago after getting a stream of feedback and opinions regarding my career and how I should sound in order to be a successful artist. In response to a lot of this feedback, I was motivated to write an anti-pop song: something very long with a lot of chord changes, a low melody and a guitar solo, more or less the antithesis of the modern pop song. Go figure, when I turned the idea in my head into a voice memo, the song sounded pretty anthemic and pop-y! I self-produced and mixed Window Dressing as well, so the entire concept came together as a statement of holding onto my identity regardless of the opinions of others.
Wise is currently working on more pop-driven material for 2021. New releases are expected in the spring and summer
Wise has collaborated with The Eagles, Lisa Fischer, Liza Anne and Joey Dosik (Vulfpeck).
