WINNER OF "INDUSTRY LEADER" AWARD :
Peter was born in Zilina, Slovakia, emigrating to Montreal, Canada with his family when he was 3. He listened to his mother sing and play piano in their Montreal apartment while growing up in a very multicultural school within a predominantly new immigrant community. He was thus exposed to all kinds of cultures, religions, music, art and languages. It was there that the seed of wanting to actively participate in arts and culture was planted.
Peter started to play guitar and sing more seriously at the age of 17 in at Holy Trinity High school in Kanata, where he began crafting his skills as a writer and musician predominantly with long time friends Shawn Tavenier of Silver Creek and Tyler Kealey. He played in school events, various bands and explored blues, funk, folk, and alternative music styles. His best effort to marry his love for performance art and entertainment led Peter to attended Carleton University and earn a degree in English Literature with a Minor in Musicology.
Vocal influences include: David Gray, Cat Stevens, Dave Matthews, Johnny Cash, Martin Sexton, Ben Harper, Ray Charles, Shannon Hoon.
His guitar influences include: Dave Matthews, Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Brian Setzer, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Ben Harper, Billy Corgan.
