Drake's Music Dealers Artist Spotlight: Day 4 of 5 (Interview) 516 words · 3 minute read

MD: If you could pick one show to do all over again, which one would it be?

Peter: Just recently I opened for Zach Deputy… and stunk. I’d just arrived in Orlando after a week and a half of my first time ever in New York City. Basically, I just wasn’t prepared or interested in that show. I should’ve been.

 

MD: What’s your favorite type of ethnic food?

Peter: There’s a tie between Vietnamese and Cuban cuisine. Usually, I’ll lean toward Vietnamese just because I have more pork-free options. But I’ve been living in Central Florida for over 3 years so I’m about 27% Hispanic.

 

MD: Name an artist, whose career you would like yours to resemble?

Peter: Prince is the goal. I keep saying that, and I’ll keep saying it ‘til I get there. He’s brilliant.

 

MD: What kind of guitar do you have?

Peter: What I have is called a Muir guitar, meaning my friend Craig put it together and gave it to me. The body is Fender Strat… it’s basically a Strat with a different neck. My guitar is the love of my life and the greatest guitar in the world. I’m sure.

 

MD: Which instrument would you like to play, that you do not know how to play.

Peter: Bass! It’s the instrument with all the qualities that make you fall for a woman.

 

MD: Do you think that everything in your career right now is on track and right where it’s supposed to be?

Peter: I’m on track, yes, but I’m growing all the time. By nature, I’m a mishap, so I’m learning how to keep my filthy hands off my career. I’m feeling more and more connected to my audience and the world outside myself. That’s always progressive. I hope your question has been answered.

 

MD: Which artist would you most like to open up for?

Peter: Gnarls Barkley. Or pretty much whatever Danger Mouse is involved in.

 

MD: If you got the chance to tour any country in the world, which would it be?

ter: Geo (my bassist and comrade) wants to be in Colombia. I’m down.

 

MD: In regards to your music career, would you change anything you have or have not done?

Peter: No. Where I’ve failed, I’ve gained experience.

 

MD: Who is the most influential person in your life?

Peter: Elder Carl L. Baldwin. My father.

 

MD: Fruits or Vegetables?

Peter: Veggies. This would be a different story if the potato was a fruit.

 

MD: Florida or California?

Peter: So you’re asking me to choose between the Orlando Magic and Kobe Bryant. Sorry, Kobe.

 

MD: Sweet or Savory?

Peter: As a rule, I’ll go for savory, but there’s nothing like a special combination of the two. I would list examples, but they all involve alcohol. Mother wouldn’t approve.

 

MD: New BMW or old school Chevy?

Peter: I’m an American.

 

MD: Nike, Converse or Adidas?

Peter: Converse please and thank you.
