Pete Hill of The Waywoods

Pete Hill of The Waywoods performs an acoustic version of their single “Black Hair, Blue Heart”, from their new album “A Ghost River Companion”. “The Waywoods, fronted by Philly everyman Pete Hill and joined by Dan Beaver, Jarrod Pedone, and Nate Matulis, just released their debut LP, A Ghost River Companion, after a handful of years spent shuffling around a solo project and collaborating with some of Philly’s most prolific musicians. The album floats somewhere between an indie and Americana rock space, following Hill’s true to form stream-of-consciousness writing style, emphasizing whatever feels the most authentic on any given track. The opening song, “Black Hair, Blue Heart,” is a subtle, country-rooted stop-and-start exploration of wanting something you shouldn’t have.”

The little-known greatness of Pete Hill

Pete Hill could do it all, and he could do it all well. A five-tool player before the term even existed, Hill was remembered by those who saw him play for excelling in all aspects of the game, as well as his ability to excite on both ends of the ball. Yet as much as his athletic abilities, it was the outfielder’s influence that made him so important; his obituary in the Chicago Defender asserted that Hill “helped put Negro baseball on the map.”
