If you missed it on TV last week, here's my interview with Kat Iniba on Halo Halo. I chat with Kat about why I left Goldman Sachs, the night I wrote "Into the Sea", co-writing with Olivia Thai, my upcoming album Lions on the Beach, among other fun topics.

Vicious Cycle (Live Debut) - Olivia Thai and Peter Su

Olivia and I got together last week - and wrote this song pretty quickly.  We probably chatted for an hour, then got to writing and an hour later it was done.  After being in performing and recording mode for the past few months, it feels really good to finish a new song, let alone with someone as talented as Olivia.

I’m working hard on finishing the album artwork and booking the release shows for Lions on the Beach (yes new title, not Into the Sea - the album took on a new meaning for me as I put it together).  But in the meantime, I’ll be doing more co-writes and collabos for y’all to hear!

Hey everybody!

Little celebratory vid here. Thanks to you - we reached the first goal - $10K! The Album will be finished. The Music Video will be shot. THANK YOU all so much for your support, for pledging, for spreading the word.

So once the album is done, what happens after? I've thought a lot about it, and want to publicize "Into the Sea" as much as possible, to give it a chance at finding its audience, for people to hear the music.

I wanna bring it to you live with a tour, bring it to you online via music videos, and maybe even bring it to you on college radio. The publicity will need its own budget so I'm setting a stretch goal of $20K.

BONUS REWARD: If we reach the goal of $20K, I'm gonna write and record my best attempt at a "summer jam" and send it to all of you backers! Pledge now, keep spreading the word, thank you!

My G+ peeps!

"What the heck has Peter been up to?"

As some of you know, it's been more than 3 years since I left my venture capital gig to pursue my dream of making music for people as a singer/songwriter. It's been a life-changing journey so far - discovering who I am, what I want, and most importantly what I can give to the world.

“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” - Picasso (I love this quote)

It'd mean the world to me if you could check out the official launch of my Kickstarter for my debut album - "Into the Sea".

Here's a happy sounding melody with sad lyrics - all sung in Portuguese. Had a blast collabing with Lisa Sonoda, who has a great ear for tasty tunes. 

O Ritmo Da Chuva - the rhythm of the rain (reminds me of you)

Into the Sea
By Peter Su

I'm a prodigal son with no father
Sailing a ship with no rudder
Chasing down the wind
Traveling to the ends of belief

I'll follow you into the sea
Calm the waves, on which we meet
I'll follow you, I'll follow you
Into the sea

Who's heard the prayers of my mother
Heavy, released like an anchor
Her begotten son
Can she save him from, the burning sun

I'll follow you into the sea
Calm the waves, on which we meet
I'll follow you, I'll follow you
Into the sea

Ooh
Ooh

I'm drowning, I'm drowning
In my own world
I'm sinking, I'm sinking
In my footsteps

Is this the beginning?
Of understanding?
If I could see you
From where I'm standing

I'll follow you into the sea
Calm the waves, on which we meet
I'll follow you, I'll follow you
Into the sea

Into the Sea - Peter Su

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? - Peter Su & Katie Ferrara (Zooey Deschanel and JGL Cover)

I fell in love with this cute and charming song after seeing Zooey and JGL’s version a few year’s ago.  It feels like the older I get the more resonance this question has - “What are you doing New Year’s Eve”?  Maybe it’s because a lot of my good friends are out of town this year, or that it’s harder and harder to get everybody out in the same place every year.  Do we all end up as couple’s or single people looking anxiously around the bar at 11:59pm?  

Haha, ok, subconscious ramble over.  Enjoy the charming little tune and happy new year!

Just co-wrote a new song! "Where Do We Go", with Jamal Lamont - one of my favorite soul voices I've heard in a while.
Check it out, and subscribe to my youtube channel.

What does it sound like when a Goldman Sachs banker and Sand Hill VC quits to chase his closet dream and become a singer/songwriter?

My first time "acting" in a music video.  Lisa Sonoda's "Never Could", directed by Christian Soriano.  Fans of chill dream pop, check it out:

Any +passenger fans?  

Here's our take on "Let Her Go" - a little more soulful with a pinch of jazz.
First collab with +Tommy Animato

"Wake Up" - Arcade Fire, 3 part harmony, parking garage edition. 

A few minutes past midnight on Tuesday, I found myself stuck with my car in a parking garage in dtla. Luckily, I had just befriended 2 great musicians, Andy Yoontae Kim and Christopher Changchien, who happened to have a guitar and laptop. We found an outlet and shot this arcade fire video before our phones died.
