Bringing together influences from the worlds of rock, pop & folk Peter Appleyard crafts distinctive, timeless and emotionally charged compositions.
Following some well received EPs Peter released his debut album 'Day in the sun' worldwide digitally in early 2010. Featuring the award nominated tracks 'Can't help smiling' and 'Popstar', the release firmly established his confident and original style. Support soon followed from local, regional and internet radio stations.
Performing the tracks live throughout the UK particularly showed the strength and wide appeal of Peter’s music. Making the national final of the Exposure Music Awards in London, for Best Live act, confirmed his talent too. Supporting some of Peter’s favourite independent and established artists proved a great experience and helped take his music to a new audience.
Peter’s critically acclaimed second studio album, ‘No Looking back’, was released in late 2014. Recorded in the wilds of rural Norfolk, with expert producer/engineer Jonny Cole, this more ambitious record broadened Peter’s musical horizons and features the live favourite ‘Ordinary’. Working with New Zealand based Songwriter/Actor Kevin Harty, and backed by some of the UKs finest musicians, key tracks were 'Commended' in the UK Songwriting Contest, made the final of international competition the ‘Recording Festival’ and were featured on the cover CD of Acoustic magazine.
