Peter Roberts obtained his bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies with a focus in voice from Howard University. He is a former member of Afro Blue the premiere vocal jazz ensemble at Howard and has performed with the likes of the late Geri Allen, Cyrus Chestnut, Esperanza Spalding, Chance the Rapper, Yolanda Adams, Kelli Clarkson, and many others. Being in Afro Blue has allotted him with the opportunities to sing at the famous Apollo Theater, The John F. Kennedy Center, as well as the White House where he sang with the group for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. While his focus in college was jazz voice, his true passion lies with the piano and organ.
The music you’ll be hearing is from a not yet released album called Art of the Simple Song putting aside the complexity of typical song structure and focusing on the simplicity and evolution of melodies.
