“Nevada Sky” features Peter’s well-deep vocals on three of his original songs – “Like Music, Like Fire”, “I Was Dreaming” and the title track "Nevada Sky”, plus a choice cover of the late Willy DeVille’s “I Call Your Name.”

Felix McTeigue produced the sessions at Saltlands Studios in Brooklyn and the Morrison Hotel Gallery loft in SoHo, and Peter got tight-knit backing from an all-star cast of players including guitarist Chris Masterson (Steve Earle), Bassist Byron Isaacs (Ollabelle) Drummer Tony Leone (Ollabelle) and vocalist Fiona McBain, (Ollabelle).

Originally from Northern California, Peter was in his early 20s in 1978 when he drove his beat-up ’58 Chevy pickup onto the Capitol Records parking lot in Hollywood for his first industry job, packing his guitar, and a pocketful of dreams.

Once in the door with his first job in the mailroom, Peter rose quickly in the biz, working as a marketing exec for Capitol/EMI, then cross-fading to EMI’s Picture Music International as music video division chief, content producer and marketeer, and, since 2001, as co-founder of the Morrison Hotel fine-art music photo gallery in New York City that represents scores of renowned photographers.

As he achieved success behind the scenes, Peter always kept his own musical dream alive, writing songs and singing them in clubs and venues. Finally, in 2012, at age 60, he thought the time was right to take his music public.

“I think that somebody my age should still be able to write and record, and to sing to all generations, even if it's for the first time” Peter said. “My perspective, our perspectives, are different at 60 from what they were in our 20s. Musically, the whole idea of Americana is to keep the musical roots and song structures that have remained strong the last 50 years, some even longer. When you hear the songs, you'll hear all sorts of things that I've stuck to like wishing you might meet that old friend again or just long for a peaceful life in the mountains. What's inside never changes.”
