25 Years.

This summer marks 25 years since the formation of Big Parade and the release of our first album. We’re celebrating on Sept. 8 with a concert at the SANDY AMPHITHEATER. As part of it, we have been digging deep into our catalogue and pulling out songs we haven’t touched in many years for this show. We’ll also be performing brand new songs that have been receiving wonderful feedback from audiences all summer. The band will be scaled back a bit too to capture the more minimalist sound of those early albums, and we've added a video component to the show just like we have used at our Christmas shows through the years. All this is combining to make what feels like, to us, a whole new show -  and we’re just a little excited :) We think it’s going to be amazing.

Peter and his family spent the Winter/Spring of 2018 in Ecuador. Here are some videos of their travels (including new songs Peter recorded while in South America). You can find more videos on the TRAVEL page of this site.


To celebrate the launch of this new website, we're giving away some BONUS TRACK downloads. These are songs that were recorded during the sessions of Peter's original albums but were left off for various reasons. They're B-sides. You can download them for free for a limited time by going to the music page and looking through the track lists for songs labeled "Bonus Track".  


Peter just finished recording a new original song called "A Day's Passed By" to be used as the new theme song for a YouTube channel called "8Passengers". 

A  new film called "Operation Toussaint" came out in July 2018 that tells the story of former Homeland Security Agent Tim Ballard's decision to start Operation Underground Railroad which combats human trafficking around the world. It is a remarkable film. Peter's song "Lullaby" is the closing song of the film and is used in a very powerful way to wrap up the story. We encourage you all to see the film. See the trailer.

Last August, Peter and band did an hour-long radio appearance for a BYU Radio show called Highway 89. We think it's one of the best-sounding broadcast performances we've done, and so we thought you might like to hear it here. 

What has Peter been up to lately? In these podcast interviews, Peter discusses his musical journey, what he's doing these days, and future aspirations.
