Peter Himmelman is a critically acclaimed American singer-songwriter and film and television composer from Minnesota, who formerly played in the Minneapolis indie rock band Sussman Lawrence before pursuing an extensive solo career. “Himmelman writes with the same empathetic edge that impelled the Lost Generation to write novels,” according to Time magazine. Himmelman is also the founder of Big Muse, a company which helps individuals and organizations unlock their creative potential. Himmelman garnered his first solo deal on Island Records in 1985 after a video for the song "Eleventh Confession" made its way onto regular rotation on MTV. His first release entitled This Father’s Day was composed for Himmelman’s father David. "Stunning... "Eleventh Confession" is a hauntingly beautiful track..."- Rolling Stone. In the early '90s, he achieved significant alternative radio play with songs including "The Woman With The Strength of 10000 Men", from his From Strength To Strength release. He was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2002 for his song "Best Kind Of Answer" which appeared in the CBS series Judging Amy, for which Himmelman also composed the score. He was the composer for the FOX television show Bones through the fourth season. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for his children's album, My Green Kite. USA Today has called Himmelman "one of rock's most wildly imaginative performers" for his often times highly improvisational stage shows.
