WPRK’s Local Heroes – Peter Baldwin

General Information Comments

Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Peter Baldwin began his music career while studying Recording Arts at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. By age 19, he was locally heralded in the press as an electrifying vocalist and live performer. Since releasing his unplugged album, I Was Here (2008), Baldwin has continued to headline concerts throughout the state of Florida while showcasing in New York City and Los Angeles. He has opened for such venerable acts as Earth, Wind and Fire, Joss Stone, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Mayer Hawthorne, Theophilus London, K’naan and Aloe Blacc.

His music is a unique cook-up of soul induced-indie rock with folk, jazz and pop overtones, a sound he calls “alternative soul.” With the release of his proper debut EP Peter Baldwin in Vodville, Baldwin not only introduces himself as an promising recording artist, but as a visionary and equally adept producer who aims to push the boundaries of popular soul music.

Written, produced and arranged by Baldwin, Peter Baldwin in Vodville (2011) is available on iTunes. The EP was released by Rock Ya Girl, a music company founded by Baldwin and his manager James “Tru” Truitt. Since moving to Brooklyn, NY, in the summer of 2011, PB has been featured in M Music Magazine and Music Connections Mag (print), as well as Russell Simmons’s, and more!
