Peter is a nationally known jazz vocalist and band-leader that has blended genres of music from soul, Hip hop, funk and blues to create a unique sound. His residencies at Time in Center City Philadelphia and private event appearances in New York, Atlantic City and throughout Pennsylvania have made him a sought after singer for numerous groups and collaborations.

Christopher Davis-Shannon’s music is the essence of honest simplicity. Steeped strongly in the piedmont and delta fingerstyle blues traditions, his performances bring you back to a time of juke joints and smoky blues clubs of the early 20th century south. A modern vagabond he has toured the country, performing from Las Vegas to New Orleans and throughout the South.
