Peter Q. Myers / BMI Songwriter
Myers' professional songwriting career started after an in-house showcase was arranged at CBS with A&R director John Hammond which resulted in a three year staff writing position at AprilBlackwood/CBS and a recording/production contract with producers Hank Medress and Dave Appell.
During that time Myers formed the Peter Myers Band [PMB] and worked the showcase club circuits of New Jersey and New York City. PMB also played concert openings for national acts. Attending one of the NYC showcases was music publisher Leeds Levi who eventually signed Myers to a publishing/recording contract with Duchess/MCA Music and the Peter Myers Band released their first single on the MCA/Deli Platters label titled Real Tears written by Myers.
Myers continued to sign song publishing deals with independent music publishers in Nashville, L.A. and New York. Among the contracted songs was the title track from David Hasselhoff's debut recording project Night Rocker produced by Joel Diamond. Myers also wrote Hasselhoff's No Words For Love. The album helped launch a huge UK and European career for David Hasselhoff as a singer.
Myers disbanded the PMB to work as a solo artist/writer under Harry Palmer, GM/VP at ATCO Records in New York City after signing a multi-song publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music / COTA Music.
Currently, Myers is developing new song catalogs, producing emerging artists and continues to work as a producer/songwriter having several of his BMI catalog songs being held by major artists and record producers. Myers' songwriting reaches different genres including musical theater. Myers' one-act musical play "Pardon My Reach" received a performance/reading at the Grand Theater on 44th Street, New York City directed by Don Price.
Myers has composed Kosmo the title track of Maria Markesini's cd release on ETCETERA Records, distributed by Codaex. The cd also includes "A Day At The Races" also composed by Myers.
