It’s been a good year so far for pianist Peter Kater. After winning his first Grammy in February (his 13th nomination), Peter has also defied the odds by having two top 10 albums on the Billboard New Age Chart in the same week.
The new record, She (featuring Peia Luzzi) and a celebration of women, was released on March 30 and already has debuted at number 3 on the Billboard New Age Chart. It was also number 1 on Amazon’s Hot New Release Chart. Dancing with Water (released in 2017), won the Grammy for Best New Age Album in February of this year. The album consists of improvised piano solos performed by Mr. Kater while individuals lay under his piano. The record previously peaked at number 3 on the Billboard chart and the album re-emerged last week at number 8.
In his career, Peter Kater has recorded over 60 albums and has scored the music for over 100 television & film productions including 11 On and Off-Broadway dramatic plays. Having the award show in NY this year also stirred up some nostalgia for Mr. Kater, “It’s also cool that the awards were in New York because of the Broadway plays I scored in the 90’s.” His music has been featured in everything from Olympic games to the Kentucky Derby to Wild World of Sports and many in-between. He has performed all over the world including the United Nations where he received the prestigious United Nations Environment Leadership Award.
Mr. Kater is a long time supporter of holistic wellness and will be hosting The Art of Presence retreat in Whitefish, MT in August. “Being present with yourself and in your life is the single most healing, inspiring and transformative practice you will ever learn.” – Peter Kater
