Bio

My mission, my calling, and my express purpose is to contribute to everyone’s enjoyment. I love to sing and play the piano to make people happy. I want to reach out to people in ways words alone cannot, but music is a joyous gift I have and I am glad to share with all.

Although I am classically trained and grew up with classic rock, I gravitate toward easy smooth jazz, Latin beats that stir the soul, and music of the crooner’s heyday. It was after attending the 2019 JUNOs in London, Ontario that I decided to follow my true passion and become a professional musician.

I dedicate all my time to writing, recording, and playing music. Also, I continue to learn about the industry and creative ways to monetize my art.

Performances

Peter can marvel the audience on easy listening popular jazz and original songs with his smooth voice tone and piano skill whether as a solo, with his bass and drums trio or the Bossa Nova Quartet. 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 bit of Billy Joel and Elton John.
