Peter Cincotti, singer-songwriter-pianist and native New Yorker, began playing piano at the age of three. While in high school, he regularly performed in clubs throughout Manhattan and by the age of 18 was being called “one of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation” by the New York Times.
Hailed as “the rebirth of cool” by Elle magazine, Peter explores musical styles that blend pop, rock, blues and jazz, infusing each new song he writes with originality and startling energy. His unparalleled piano skills and brilliantly relevant songwriting make Cincotti one of the most unique and socially aware artists in the music industry today, a sentiment that is freshly showcased on his new album “Metropolis.”
“Working with people like David Ryan Harris (John Mayer, Dave Mathews, etc.), John Bettis (The Carpenters, Madonna, etc.), Jon Ingoldsby (Ke$ha, Elton John, etc.), and producer John Fields (Jonas Brothers, Switchfoot, Pink, etc.), opened the door to endless creative possibilities that allowed me to execute a vision without musical boundaries or limitations,” says Cincotti.
“I wanted to make a record that could be played anywhere from a dance club to your living room and still feel unified. The songs themselves blend many genres and styles together, and explore themes of loss, change, sex, and love, with a musical atmosphere that revolves around the piano – as with everything I do.”
