Mike Peters moves effortlessly from light jazz/rock through to powerful piano instrumentals and poignant ballads. But he always demonstrates a remarkable talent for melody and a commitment to strong well crafted lyrics. And with these lyrics he paints very powerful word pictures.
Mike Peters is a singer/songwriter and professional musician who has enjoyed an extensive and successful career in Sydney, Australia. Much of his professional career involved studio session work, studio production and gigging 5 nights a week. He is now back in the studio, writing and recording again.
Early in his career Mike was signed to the famous Alberts Studios in Sydney and released several singles and an album through them.
The legendary songwriting and production team of Vanda and Young acted as mentors to Mike and his brother Stewart during their time at Alberts. Here they were taught recording and production techniques - and the art of Rock and Roll. Those lessons have proved invaluable.
Since moving to Tasmania - the southern most state in Australia, Mike has established himself as a respected performer and he now records in his own studio in the quiet hamlet of Franklin. Here is housed his much loved brand new Yamaha C3 grand piano.
He enjoys collaborating with local musicians and with musicians all over the world via the internet.
Mike has recently released several tracks via iTunes [and all the other usual outlets] and is quietly working on two CDs for release in the near future: One CD will feature his songs, and the other will hold his much in demand instrumentals and soundtracks.
