C. Peter Fennell
from Portland, Oregon
Peter has been writing and recording for over 30 years. He refers to his music as distorted folk. A prolific writer with vivid storytelling and artistic melodies, his main influences are Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Rush and Collective Soul.
The main reason he started writing music was self-preservation and defense against being bullied. He believes that songwriting saved him from self-destruction and has been the greatest healer in his life. Well, the second, Kris, his wife, is the first. He believes that the thing about most artists is, "we tend to have a background created in a web of chaos and artistry. It seems the muses are protectors as well as our inspiration. I will always write, it is heart, soul and sanity."
