Feeling a bit camera shy


Peter Michael Richardson, as an early recording artist, made his living in the Recording studios of Memphis and Nashville. One day at age 17, he walked into a Recording studio in Memphis, and said , "I'm A Singer", and Dee Barden said, "Well, let's try you out!" Peter won awards such as a 'Cleo' for singing the first 'Sears Steelbelted Tire Commercial', and 'ABC Network Spots' with Wm. B. Tanner Company under the direction of Mr. Pete Pederson who wrote, 'Peg Of My Heart' while touring with the 'HarmonaCats'. After moving to Memphis, Peter and his band 'E. Bartlett' signed a Recording Contract with STAX RECORDS. While the group was recording their album titled 'DUSTY ROAD', the STAX company went out of business, suddenly, a short time after ISAAC HAYES released, 'SHAFT'. After that happened, Peter stayed in Memphis singing for Tanner Company.
In 1974, he joined some local musician friends in Memphis and formed the RockGroup 'Leviathan'. They signed a Recording Contract with London Records and started touring the United States as a front act for 'Electric Light Orchestra', 'Manfred Mann's Earth Band', 'Greg Allman', 'Ashford and Simpson', the late 'Muddy Waters' and many other artists.
In the late 70's, Peter played keyboards and sang background vocals for 'Yancey'. Performing all the orchestration written by Carl Marsh with the regional hit song, 'Honey Bee' and 'Fallen Angel'. After a few years of playing locally, Peter moved to Dallas to sing jingles for T.M. , Jam Productions, Steven Arnold and other producers. Playing the piano on weekends at the 'Bell Star Dance Hall'. Peter played piano with 'ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL', and the 'SIDE OF THE ROAD GANG'. Later, he joined the 'Road Gang' with their album debut on Capital Records w/ a National DR. PEPPER Comercial on T.V.
They periodically toured Texas kicker bars like 'Billy Bob's Texas' with Country Greats like 'MERL HAGGARD'. The Road Gang toured the U.S. and ended their tour in NEW YORK CITY at a kicker bar named 'CITY LIMITS'. While in New York, Peter hooked up with lifelong friend Super Model, 'ROSIE VELA'/A & M RECORDING STAR and the 'Gang' recorded some sound tracks for ROSIE's Original Songs in a 24 Track Studio in downtown Manhatten.
After leaving the 'Road Gang', Peter sang jingles in the studios in Dallas and played at night with 'Rick Mensik & the All Stars', a local showband who played the CASINO'S in VEGAS. After moving to Houston, and living there for four years, Peter owned his own Jingle Company and Recording Studio. He & Rick moved to Fairbanks, Alaska for a house gig in 1986' after the economic crunch.
Peter started recording at his home 24 track studio. Breaking away from the bar scene in 1987, he started working in the construction industry through Local 302 Union and developed his New Direction. Producing, writing & recording christian music, he started ministering in music at the his local church, and several other venues in Alaska.
Peter performs his original music frequently throughout Alaska and the lower 48. He wants to branch out into Europe, and then the rest of the world where his music has been heard. "I'll most likely play music and sing until I'm a hundred and three. God has given me a second chance and this time, I want to go wherever He sends me to share the Love that delivered me from Alcohol and Drugs to Freedom and a Healthy Full Life!"
He sings from his heart with every song and writes about everyday life experiences with many stylistic influences. Great Voice and a Great Talent of our time.
