Background Information:

Peter became involved in music early in his life. He had been singing in his school choir for some time when he developed an inherent love for music. Peter started in Rock-n-roll. He began to actively pursue his musical career in the early 80's, but that was brought to a halt after a series of incidents that caused Peter to get out before he ever really got started. In 1994, after a long absence from music, Peter found his calling once more. He fell in love with music all over again. Due to the biggest influence in his life, his wife Sheri, he was convinced to try again and strive to achieve his dreams. Since then, Peter has been concentrating his efforts in country/rock music. Peter's CD, "That's What Living's For", is his first effort in country/rock. We think you will agree he was born for it!

A Statement from Peter about his Music:

"It's not that I had lost the music, I was just keeping it suppressed inside. I thank God that Sheri wanted me to be happy and she wouldn't let me give it up. Writing is a pleasure and I can feel the music again. Finding country music has been a catalyst for my writing. I've found a creative aspect I never even knew I had. I'm pretty lucky really; I've been given a second opportunity to find out who I am. I'll never be the same again."

Peter completed and released his first full length CD in August 1997 entitled "That's What Living's For". Peter has re-released his CD in 2003 with all new photos. The CD includes the five songs from his demo, as well as six original works, all penned and performed by Peter.

Peter is a regular visitor on the Internet and has samples of all the songs from his CD available as Real Audio and MP3 files. Thanks to chat programs such as ICQ, he has accumulated thousands of followers. We estimate there are approaching 1,000,000+ mp3 files of his music circulating on the Internet and it is growing daily. Peter has fans in countries in every corner of the world. His demo and CD have been sold as far away as Germany, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Scotland, Okinawa, Malaysia, England, Australia, the Philippines, and in almost every state in the country.

Due to Peter’s own marketing efforts, he has sold over two thousand cd’s and demos thus far. This is limiting in terms of self-marketing. Peter only lacks the muscle of industry professionals behind him to put him on the top. Peter Britt is a solid hit, musically and vocally. His music is unique and diverse in the country/rock genre.
