Hey everybody, meet Peter Majanen.
A couple of years ago, during one of my master classes in Portland, I was struck by the vocal quality of one of my students who happened to come from Sweden. Not only was I impressed by Peter’s tone, but was as equally moved by his overall musical appreciation and determination to attain a high level of artistry once more in his life.
Twenty years prior, Peter had been singing with various bands in Sweden, when suddenly, after a life and death operation, he found himself incapable of pursuing the long and hard road to his dream.
After a hiatus of over two decades, and attaining prominence in the advertising field, Peter decided to come to Portland and embark upon the journey back to his boyhood dreams.
I am honored to have produced and worked closely with such a sincere and driven student.
The record is called “Songs n’ Secret Places” – here are a few short samples below. -Gino
