"I picked up my first guitar at age 14 and never put it down", he says. Through high school and college dues-paying bands, Peter began to sculpt his own style from the magical marble of guitar-based classic rock married with modern influences. He did not take music and song-writing seriously, however, until his early 20's. "All the while I was taking notes at the concert that was happening constantly in my head", he states. That log transformed itself into a serious of songs showcased by bands throughout the 80's and 90's to the present. Along the way, that stylistic evolution progressed to include elements of Acoustic Rock, Pop, and Folk.
Peter has recently released a CD of very TV and Film-friendly songs including both vocal and instrumental arrangements. Throughout the collection, he displays how he has effectively mined the caverns of the sounds of various popular artists for great influences. Tasteful and melodic guitar work punctuates his songs, from blues driven rock to soulful acoustic ballads to aggressive rock instrumentals.

Finally he explores the Indie Folk universe with songs like "You Are the Mystery" and "Taking the Long Way.
Peter's lyrics, sometimes Dylan-esque, but always clever and heartfelt. "People tell me they can really relate to my lyrics, but I just write what I feel", he states. He channels images of themes both dark and brooding, and yet brings us back with songs of hope and devotion.
Peter has "created songs with catchy choruses and tight lyrics". These, the musing of a reviewer on one of Peter's song collection.
