Peter Myers: Award-Winning Singer-Songwriter & Musician
Peter Myers / Artist Bio
Peter Myers is a singer-songwriter whose career began with a music publishing contract and songwriting position at April/Blackwood, a music publishing division of CBS Music in New York City. During that time, Myers formed his own band based out of the Jersey Shore. The Peter Myers Band (PMB) began opening for national acts and working the showcase-club circuits of the Jersey Shore and New York City.
One of those performances led the band to a recording agreement with MCA/Universal and a songwriting contract for Myers with MCA Music Publishing. PMB recorded Real Tears which was released on the MCA/Deli Platters label. The record received some regional and national air-play and was posted as one of Billboard Magazine’s “Top-Ten Picks of the Week”.
As a songwriter, Myers continued to sign song publishing deals with independent music publishers in Nashville, Los Angeles and New York resulting in some of his songs being covered by other artists and released throughout the US and Europe. After a few years of ‘pitching songs’ to other artists, Myers decided to focus on his own solo artist career and was offered a multi-song publishing deal with Cota Music, a division of Warner Chappell Music and recorded his first solo artist CD titled “Cosmo.”
Myers continued to focus on his solo career and has now become a recognized, acoustic music artist with two nationally released CD’s; Jigsaw Monet and Flying Dream. In 2013, Jigsaw Monet received the Top Award in the Folk / Americana category at the 2013 Jersey Acoustic Music Awards. Myers is now in the studio recording Family Portrait, his third CD as an independent, Folk / Americana, acoustic artist.
