Talented Singer/songwriter Peter Elkas Releases Full Length Album
"The World doesn?t need you to sell ice-cream. It does, however, need you to play music," said producer/drummer Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, The Rheostatics) to then Montreal based Peter Elkas in a determined attempt to encourage him to move to Toronto and work on some songs. "Who wouldn?t hop-to after that?" says Peter, "it was a huge compliment."
So in 2002, after nearly ten years as multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with Montreal indie rockers Local Rabbits, Peter packed his bags, quit his job selling ice-cream and made the move to Toronto with little more than four songs he had written with a new Local Rabbits record in mind.
The Party Of One EP, which singer - songwriter Ron Sexsmith listed as one of his favourite recordings of 2003, has since evolved into a full-length album. Also titled
Party Of One, Peter?s debut full-length album will be released by Tapete Records May 19th..
