Hey what's up SoulTracks visitors! It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you my second project, "Simply Hymn, Volume One." These are the songs that so many of us grew up on, but arranged and performed in my style. Many of us are unsure as to what the future holds, with wars and natural disasters so prevalent in our world today. These songs have brought great comfort and peace to so many through the years. My prayer is that they will do the same for you and that all who listen would receive the peace of God. You may recognize some of the songs, others you may not have heard before, but I'm sure there's a message in there for all of us especially in this day and time. I am also inviting you to check out my web site at http://www.nevillepeter.com/ to learn more about me or just to say hello. A special thanks to you Chris for this feature.
Peace and blessings to all.

Neville Peter is a talented singer who was on the path to fame as a jazz vocalist, but instead chose a different path for his career - and Christian music fans have benefited ever since.
Born and raised in the Virgin Islands, Peter began singing in church as a child. A degenerative eye disease caused him to completely lose his eyesight by age 12, but by 14 he was studying piano and using it as an accompaniment to his developing singing voice. In high school he was singing jazz, pop and R&B in clubs and was building a name for himself in local music circles. He moved to Florida as a young man to attend the University of Miami and there won the Down Beat Magazine award for best college male vocalist. He appeared to be a jazz star in the making until he resolved in 1998 to give up his secular music opportunities and devote himself exclusively to music of faith. Over the past 7 years he has written songs for a number of Gospel artists, including Gladys Knight and has performed with a virtual who's who of contemporary Gospel artists.
In 2004, Peter recorded Messages from the Throne of Grace, an acoustic gospel album that included all original material and received notice among Gospel fans. He followed it up in 2005 with Simply Hymn, Volume One.
