Peter’s success in career to date has already seen him tour with some of his childhood influences, including US country hitmaker Joe Nichols and Canadian roots star Corb Lund, as well as sharing festival bills with superstars like Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
Now with his debut album in stores and the CMC Music Award for 2012 New Oz Artist of the Year in his trophy case, the 22-year-old has his sights set on the future and is ready to take on the music scene with his own unique signature of mainstream country.
