Steven Peter Biography
Singer, musician and songwriter Steven Peter is an Irish native living in Germany. His music is a gentle blend of styles and influences from pop and rock to country and folk and with inspiration from artists such as Ryan Adams, John Mayer, Sting, Paul Simon and Jason Mraz.
Presently living in Berlin, Steven is operating on a very busy schedule of touring, recording and writing and is currently preparing the promotion for the first of his up and coming EP releases. The music was recorded in Dublin with his long time friend and collaborator Mathias Baumann who he met through a mutual friend in 2006. “Mathias brought a great deal of energy and enthusiasm to the sessions. We’ve known each other for a long time so he knows quite well what I’m trying to achieve with the songs. It’s a pretty good partnership.”
The songs are a beautiful balance of well crafted music and the written word. They’re sometimes philosophical and sometimes direct but reveal the kind of honest emotion that will tug at the heart strings of the listener.
Other musicians that feature on the album are Judith Font, Abel Benito, Tadhg Byrne, Aibhe Nic Oireachtaigh, Aleka Potinga and acclaimed singer songwriter Sive.
When not writing and recording Steven can be found performing live. Since moving to Berlin in 2013 he has been performing, on average, 150 -200 shows a year.
So where did it all start?
Steven began his music career as a bass player working as a freelancer, touring Ireland and England with various rock cover bands. After doing this for some years he realised that something was missing. The elusive element? Song writing which he discovered after a tour of Germany with an original rock band. And so began his love affair with crafting songs, songs that have matured with Steven as a musician and singer.
Since then he has lived in the U.S.A. and Canada and toured extensively around Europe where he now does most of his work.
The first in a series of 3 EPs will be released on 21st September 2015
