Jim Peterik – Eye Of The Writer
Hi everybody! Jim Peterik here. If you don’t recognize my name you probably know many of the songs I have written: “Eye of The Tiger,” the multi- platinum theme from Rocky III, “High On You,” “I Can’t Hold Back,” and “Burning Heart” for the band I founded, Survivor. I also wrote “Hold On Loosely” and “Caught Up In You” for 38 Special, “Heavy Metal” with Sammy Hagar and of course my first million seller, “Vehicle” by my band The Ides of March. And many more.
For years my fans and friends have been asking me to do an acoustic album of my biggest songs done in an intimate and more revealing way.
The time is now and I’m really pumped!
I’ve enlisted the amazing Fred Mollin to help me on this journey. Fred has produced albums in the “unplugged” style for brilliant artists such as Jimmy Webb, Art Garfunkel, America and Kris Kristofferson. We will be reaching out across generations to both classic artists and current hit artists to guest on this project as well.
As a part of the Pledgemusic/Peterik team- because the cameras will always be rolling- you will get a private window into the creative process as we make this album, even taking part in certain decisions along the way.
You can get involved at any level from being the first to receive the finished product (cd and dvd), to higher levels of signed copies. I will also be offering signed guitars from my personal collection, private skype songwriting sessions, signed copies of my autobiography “Through the Eye Of The Tiger”, signed copies of my new Ides of March 50th anniversary 5 disc box set, VIP tickets to my multi format shows and the big CD release party at the Jam Lab in Chicago, right on up to the Ultimate Fan Experience!
I’m looking for a few good men and women to help me make this life-mission album. This is my legacy and I want it to shine.
As a member of Team Peterik/ Pledgemusic you can help me make it real.
