ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peter was born in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey and is the second youngest of six boys. His first introduction to music was witnessing two of his elder brothers jamming to Glam rock covers with home made polystyrene guitars. Soon enough the polystyrene guitars became real and the second eldest brother Terrey, who had just finished the first European tour with The Rolling Stones as lighting manager, took an interest and recorded an album at home with his two younger brothers. Peter, being artistic and painting from very early age, saw that he would be able to express himself in a different way through music after witnessing his elder brothers endeavours.
Peter picked up the acoustic guitar and jammed along to his brothers music, then moved onto bass guitar finally finding his forte.
Peter found an expression for his grief at losing his parents at early age firstly through the anger of punk, and then through the passion of rock.
Studying bass guitar and musical theory at Basstech in Acton enabled Peter to enhance his natural talent and improve his chances as a gigging musician.
His first big break was playing bass guitar with the original members of Thin Lizzy at a Phil Lynnot tribute gig. This was the springboard for Peter to tour the UK and Europe in various different bands.
While all this was happening, Peter found time to hone his songwriting and production skills to enable him to write a spoken word album with Ted Golder, an American associate, and form the band, The Spoken X. At the same time Peter is continually writing songs with the emotion and passion of his earlier life, Through his experience in production he has also developed an interest in instrumental music of different genres. He is now focusing his career on completing his first solo album entitled “Stepping Up”. Also he is planning to go out first as a solo performer then with a band to tour his new album.
Music is his life.

Intelligent Adult Pop/Rock CD
"Stepping Up" by Peter Paul Parker is an alternative rock album with acoustic roots. Peter has a sound all his own and his lyrics speak of life and "Turning the Page." There is a great deal of passion in the performances on the CD, with driving verses and powerful, well harmonized choruses. The musicianship is superior and is certainly what you would expect from an industry professional. The production quality is very good and the arrangements stay true to the sound while having a pop sensibility. Highlights include " I Believe," which features meaningful lyrics and a fluid, rocking chorus. "Sad But True" features a beautiful melody and memorable chorus. "Things Ain't So Bad" has a banging beat and nice poppy accents. If you enjoy adult pop/rock with meaningful lyrics, you'll enjoy this CD.
