Peter's musical career began at an early age when he joined Swallow's Juniors following great success in the TV show's talent contest.  Peter honed his singing, instrumental and entertaining skills performing regularly on the show for five years and also appearing at hotels and clubs.  At the age of 14 he became a regular on the Sunday afternoon shows at Melbourne's Festival Hall and was offered his first recording contract whilst still at school.

His first solo single was a hit and was quickly followed up by several more, an album and two EPs.  Next Peter joined Grandma's Tonic recording two singles as the group's lead singer and then two more as a soloist with the group providing backing.  Further recordings came after he joined the Virgil Brothers whose success landed them a trip to the UK and then Peter was invited to join the New Seekers making numerous records and scoring a good number of international hits.

After Peter left the New Seekers, he carried on recording but releases were much less prolific, his last single was released in 1980 though happily for us,  Peter kept many unreleased recordings and from these treasures, his friends recently put together a CD of Peter's unpublished work.
