Composer and musical architect PETER T. MYERS joyfully crafts detailed compositions, illuminating lively stories through counterpoint, textured harmonies and striking rhythms. His inventively orchestrated works and productions showcase the colorful range of each individual instrument and capture the exciting emotional impact of a live performance. With five decades of experience in the music and entertainment industries, he has worked extensively with many gifted artists, groups and professionals, including Sarah Vaughn, Sammy Davis, Jr., Marvin Gaye, Bill Conti, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, Doug Cramer, Doc Severinsen, Olivia Newton-John, The London Symphony Orchestra and Placido Domingo.
His diverse work on film, television and theatre projects demonstrates his natural ability to interpret the voices of many different types of artists and to create exceptional music that perfectly expresses a specific story and genuine feeling.
