Meet Peter

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

  1. Good day.
    I am writing and sending my poems, compositions and wonderful congratulations for Gino long ago. I am doing creative activity and art.
    And yet art is concluded to animate vulnerable soul of painter.
    I wrote very big support Gino, via my sincere words about his music and concerts. That his new achievements in music will be very enchanting and magic.
    That his fans, when they listen to his New Album, will wait, having held their breath, his charming melodies, which are going from his musical mouth.
    Album will be strong, beautiful and precious, like sky rainbow. I value this personality for his diligence and industry in Music.
    But i am upset so because i didn’t get any word from him or his team. And to know how he values my work and all what i am writing and creating. Opinion about my letters.
    I don’t know how to connect to him yet. Where it may write. May be manager will answer me. A something contact.
    And yet I have only, little musical composition by which he will interested, i think. It is unfinished for piano. In these sounds one may hear human experiences. Simply charming introduction. Help me please to knock to Gino!!!
    So my belief and expectation are withering, like beautiful petals of flowers

  3. After listening to the samples of Peter Majanen’s CD, I purchased it on iTunes. I have to say, superb arrangement of Scarborough Fair. Also, Make You Feel My Love and He Ain’t Heavy are two more favorites. Thank you for the samples and leading me to this outstanding artist. Awesome collaboration between Gino and Peter.

  4. bought from Amazon.com

    Love Amazing Grace.

    Thanks Gino for turning me on to yet another artist.

  5. oh my – what a beautiful voice! thank you Gino for introducing us!

  6. I am sitting here listening to the brother to brother album and I wanted you to know just how much this album touched my heart and soul. In fact the words and melodies stirred my emotions to the point of weeping. These words and beautiful collection and arrangement of notes, in my opinion have been matched by not to many artists and composers. This music brought me through a very tumultuous time in my life and helped me to get in touch with my deepest emotions thank you so much. Sorry for being so morose but this music impacted my life
