THIS IS ME
"Peter's an absolutely delightful person, and his playing is spot-on."
~ Peter Dolese, Exec. Director of OKC Arts Council
"Amazing talent with the knowledge to back up his genuine flair...mainly his warmth and genuine love of music - he can engage with grannies to grandchildren! Book him now!"
"Super musician and artist."
After a 16-year career in the orchestra classroom and being named the 2014 State Teacher of the Year in Oklahoma, I left teaching to pursue creating and sharing music full-time. Second only to my family, my greatest love is to play my guitar and sing with playing my violin a near second. James Taylor and the Beatles are spun the most on my record player, and I strive to write uplifting and encouraging lyrics accompanied by beautiful yet simple melodies. My latest musical adventure has led me to looping violin performances where each song is built live in front of the audience with nothing pre-recorded.
The greatest fortune in my musical life is having parents that viewed music as an essential part of the home. A near second has been making music with my friend and musical partner of over two decades, Kyle Dillingham. As part of his band, Horseshoe Road, I enjoy learning new songs of all genres and bringing to life the possibilities of changing lives through music. Learn more about us at www.HorseshoeRoad.net.
