Since the release of his 80s infused single “Breaking Chains” in 2021, Newfoundland’s Peter Vance has set himself free from the past, taking the deep dive and confronting relationship realities from experience. Written in the aftermath of a relationship and personal breakdown, the catchy songwriter teamed up with Paula Danylevich of HYPE MUSIC PR to push the release, going on to receive great publicity from Global TV News, VENTS Magazine, Canadian Beats, and other radio and media outlets across Canada.
When interviewed by The Newfoundland Herald, Dillon Collins referred to Peter’s infectious artistic style as a “rock-pop hybrid, tailor-made for modern-day radio,” adding “he has all the tools to make waves, locally and abroad.”
Three years earlier, he earned himself a place in the hearts of export Newfoundlanders as well as other Canadians with his then pop rock band Mile Twenty Five. Their hometown proud single “Riverside Drive” amassing 47,000+ views on YouTube and impressive media coverage on CBC and NTV, shooting them to #1 on the East Coast Countdown and Top 10 on CIOE Radio in Halifax, NS, for 2019.
This opened doors and opportunities to perform as a working musician and songwriter, allowing him to become a regular in the bar and club circuit across the island as both a solo act and in various side projects. Learning some of life's hard lessons along the way but staying focused on his artistic vision, he has been honing his craft ever since and is set to become one of the province's promising young songwriters.
Having come a long way since entering the music industry in 2017, the singer-songwriter is set to return to the studio in 2023, working with local music legend - producer Clint Curtis, in hopes of returning to a more organic, nostalgic pop rock sound.
