Bio

Peter Tam’s musical styling is easy listening, smooth sounds, and positivity. With his rich dulcet tones, masterful piano skills, and beautifully crafted lyrics, Peter brings a flavour to jazz that is simple, yet unique.     

Peter has worked with Andrew Van Slee, who has produced for many artists, notably Michael Bublé, and worked with other well known JUNO award-winning musicians.   These collaborations have led to him forging mellow yet polished tunes for his listeners.   Peter’s distinctive voice, exquisitely fashioned balladry and uplifting melodies put him in a category that exudes sophistication, elegance, and class.



Performance

Peter is a versatile performer who works with a large roster of professional musicians to entertain an audience as a Vocal Piano, drum, bass jazz trio to a 5 pieces ensemble.   The cover songs and original songs are in classic swing pop, and smooth jazz genre which reminiscent of the glamourous era that gave life to the Greats such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Ray Charles but infused with a few Billy Joel and Elton John.

“Peter Tam is a relaxed, happy musician and those qualities can be heard all through his original pop-jazz songs. As he tickles his piano, he sings about themes inspired from life on the west coast.”

ROSS HARVEY

“The sound takes me to a jazz club decades old, when people went out for the night dressed in class, sitting in low-lit, smoke filled rooms listening to the best of the best jazz a club owner could find. Tam has elegantly revived elegant lounge jazz”
