Your voice is incredible in “Under the Mistletoe” Peter! How did you prepare for this recording of this song?
I got my old CD out and sang along with myself in my truck while driving around, doing my Christmas shopping.
Was there anything challenging about doing a collaboration album?
The more the merrier! We had a talented group of giving people involved so we made new life-long friends.
What was a fan reaction to your song that you’ll keep with you forever?
I’ve received so many wonderful messages but two tweets in particular have stuck with me, “Being a romantic at heart, ‘Under the Mistletoe” really caught my attention. I love how personal it sounds. Also reminds me of leaving Ohio and spending Holidays in Florida as a kid. It always felt a little odd without snow but having loved ones around you makes all the difference.”
And the second one: “In a bid to curb our climbing COVID #s, we’re headed for a 28 day lockdown starting Boxing Day. Thank you for your beautiful music. Currently listening to my favorite Christmas playlist, which includes the music from the amazing JOY album.”
It makes me happy to hear that “Under the Mistletoe’ is bringing joy to someone or stirring treasured memories for others.
You were Bo Brady on Days of Our Lives, which is incredible! What are the similarities and differences to being on screen acting and in the booth recording?
Both acting and recording are about storytelling. I just have to put myself into the story, which is like playing make-believe when I was a kid. Best job EVER!
