Peter Tam is a new Canadian singer/songwriter in the pop-jazz genre. His songs often touch on themes of gratitude and relationships. Peter likes using the Pacific Northwest weather as a metaphor.
On September 10 Peter’s single “Thanks for the Rain” was released on all streaming and downloading platforms as well as on radio. Producer Andrew Van Slee, who produced Michael Bublé’s first album, was instrumental in making this happen. “Thanks for the Rain” is about how dealing with adversity builds strength and resilience.
Music has always been a passion for Peter. When he attended the JUNO Awards in London, Ont. this year, he felt inspired by Canadian icons and pioneers like David Foster. It is Peter’s dream to win a JUNO or maybe even a Grammy Award.
Peter’s easy-listening pop-jazz music is mostly influenced by songs sung by legendary Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole infused with some classic rock of Elton John and Billy Joel.
