Peter Jessy: Music

Need some new music recommendations? Today’s #PassionPreview is from singer/songwriter Peter Jessy: “Music has, and always will be, my biggest passion. I have been a singer-songwriter for most of my life. From the ages of 6 - 16, I took classical vocal training, and did as many music competitions as possible.”

Why music? “I’m not very good at expressing myself, so music is the best outlet for me to let everything out. I love taking a bad moment in time and creating something beautiful out of it. In my music, I make sure to share my own personal experience with mental illness, the LGBT community, and relationships in hopes that others with similar experiences can take comfort in knowing they aren’t alone.”

To someone not interested in music: “Some people say it isn't realistic to pursue music as a full time career, and I get where they are coming from. It's very difficult and it's very unpredictable. Regardless of all of the negatives, music is the only thing I have never given up on.”

To someone interested in getting started in music: “Do it. Start now. Write and sing as often as you can. There are so many resources available online to help you get started! The hardest step is the first one. Get out there and share your story.”
