Meet Peter Nigido

When did you first start making music and what led you there? I found my interest in music (especially rhythm) throughout my early studies of dance. At 13, I began learning how to play the drums and by 16 I was delving into the world of composition. It wasn’t until my early 20’s that I began releasing solo material.

How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it? My current sound is full of energy. I usually write music with sequencers merging and complementing parts with organic instrumentation. I would have described my early works as cinematic, now I’ve pulled my style into a more pulsating electronic groove that steers it into that “early morning” club feel.

Tell us about your new single ‘Turn a Page’? ‘Turn a Page’ is a representation of moving forward. It’s about self-reflection and becoming emotionally stronger. It’s also about the process of developing a positive outlook to any negative situation.

How is it different from what we’ve heard on your previous singles? My previous works have all been written within the Minor key, I usually like my work to carry a darker feel. ‘Turn a Page’ has been rearranged with a Major lift and for the first time I’m using colour and upbeat rhythms to distinguish the feel and energy. 

What do you love about making music? I love the challenge making music has to offer, and also the opportunity to collaborate with inspiring musicians. Even though I’m a solo artist, I have a small team of producers directing and challenging my sound to the current edge.

‘Turn a Page’ is available on all streaming services on Friday August 31. Keep an eye on Peter Nigido online to see when he’s launching his EP.
