Music crooner…

Peter started his career as a guitarist and singer in 1966, with a band called “Crowd”, which later changed into “Liza”. In 1974, they moved to Copenhagen to make their debut album. But before that, in ’69, they had made a single.

The debut album made it fair, and 2 years later, in 1976, the successor: “Take a look again”. Next album, which was released in 1978, was all Danish and called “Hold kontakten”.

Approximately at the same time, Peter Brander joined the band “Charlatan”, and they recorded 2 albums: “Glimt fra Werners Verden” (1977), “Masser af Mennesker”, including the hit-single: “Johnny Gi Et Nummer” (1979), and “Gi Den En Paa Hatten” (1981).

After that, Peter Brander played in “Kroelle Eriks Bluesband”. They made 2 albums, and after that, Peter Brander had a quit period, at least concerning own recording. The following years is spending making albums and sounds, among others “Nikolaj og Piloterne”, “Big Fat Snake”.

In 1989, he toured with Michael Falch on the tour called “Haabets Hotel”, and this collaboration still continues. He has also mixed and recorded all of Peter Viskinde’s albums (except the very first), just as he has helped making the sound on records by Poul Krebs, One Two, Zapp Zapp, Nikolaj Steen, C. V. Joergensen and many more.

In 1997, Peter Brander releases his first solo-album: “AM/PM Blue Shades”, and the year after that, he played a lot of gigs, e.c. as warm-up for B. B. King. In 1999 the band “The North” is formed with Klaus Schoenning and Kim Skovbye. So far the band has released 2 albums, and a 3rd is to be released.

In 2002, Peter Brander releases his 2nd solo-album: “Silk and Steel”, which is followed by a lot of concerts, including Langelandsfestivalen, Dragoer Festivalen, as warm-up for Peer Gren in Amager Bio among others. Besides playing music, Peter Brander attends to his professional studio: Media Sound in Copenhagen, where a vast majority of all Danish musicians, sometimes or another has recorded.

Throughout his long and comprehensive career, Peter Brander has recorded a lot of albums, numerous demos, and performed live more many times.

In 2016 Peter Brander can celebrate his 40th anniversary as recording artists, musician, side-man, producer etc. and to celebrate this a new solo album will be released titled “Town & Country”.
