Singer/songwriter Joe Peters grew up in the American midwest during the turbulent times of the 1960s and 70s, and his songs hearken back to a time when the youth of the planet sought the experience of peace, love and adventure and expressed this search in their music. Through his own music, Joe hopes to rekindle in others that spark of spiritual journey that was awakened in him long ago by the songs of introspective artists like Cat Stevens, Donovan, and Neil Young.
