Peter is the youngest of the three Harper brothers. They all grew up in the famous Folk
Music Center in Claremont California amongst the guitars, banjos, ukuleles and other
musical instruments from around the world. The music store was opened by their
grandparents in the late 50’s where Peter’s grandmother, Dorothy, could play anything
with strings. The eldest brother Ben, would grow up to be the world famous singer and
musician. The middle brother Joel, is a prolific writer of children’s books and an avid
environmentalist. For 20 years Peter, the youngest of the bunch, chose the art of
sculpture to express his creativity. He spent time as a professional visual artist, a
college professor and a passionate musician.
After releasing his first album “Self Titled” in 2016, Peter toured extensively in North
America and Europe. Alone on the road with his tenor guitar on both a quest and an
adventure, his first tour through France was such a success that he decided to release
a European edition of his self titled album which was received with critical acclaim.
In 2017, Peter recorded and released his second album “Break The Cycle” which
features the duet “Million Miles” with Grammy Award-Winner Jody Watley. The album
marks the first release in which Peter displays both his talents as a visual artist and a
musician together in one package. The CD booklet contains 11 original drawings and
the limited edition vinyl (200 pieces) are each individually hand drawn. In 2017, Peter
was made an ambassador of the Surfrider Foundation in Europe as he performed on
multiple tours across the European Continent.
His latest EP “Twilight Time” was recorded in late 2018 and released in early 2019. It
contains five songs from the forthcoming album. Based in the soul drenched folk style
that Peter is known for, the EP also features some new collaborations and the
introduction of the band known as Peter Harper and The Last Three.
Headed back to Europe for his fourth European Tour in the summer 2019, Peter Harper
is ready to charm his audience with his warm soul filled voice, his four string guitar and
his sense of humanity that will not only leave you glowing, but remind you that there are
still beautiful things in the world worth believing in.
