Pre-order Peter’s new album SOUL STORY now (release date Aug. 26,2022)!   

Amazon #1 Hot New Release

In intimate settings over the years, I’ve noticed that I’d feel compelled to play differently depending on who I was playing for. Curious, I started inviting people, one at a time, to lie under the piano while I improvised just for them. Intrigued, I explored further and started sitting and chatting with individuals before playing for them and noticed that while listening to their life stories I’d hear melodies and segments of music in my head. This evolved into what I now call “Piano Readings”; improvised pieces of music inspired by and played for individuals while lying under my piano that I would record professionally and give to them so they could listen to it over and over again. This album is a collection of some of my favorite segments. I hope you enjoy these deeply felt, very personal, solo piano Soul Stories. - Peter Kater

Amazon #1 Best Seller in "New Age" Category

A beautiful collection of solo piano improvisations that I've been recording over the last several months. These pieces are tender, calming and very heart centered. I think they're very special.

Amazon #1 Best Seller in the "International" Category

My tribute to Aloha Aina (the soul of Hawaii). It features ALL Hawaiian musicians, except for myself (but I'm Hawaiian in my heart) playing all indigenous instruments with lots of traditional Hawaiian chanting and singing. I'm very proud of this album and honored to have worked with these soulful musicians.

Peter’s Grammy-Winning release WINGS

Peter presents a passionate and alluring recording that is rhapsodic and abundant with emotion. “Wings” soars, swoops and dives deep into the heart and soul of the listener. These recordings display a fresh new beauty and depth in Peter’s compositions and piano artistry. From spacious intimate passages through gusts of whirlwind delight, this music will enliven and lift you, almost as if you had Wings.

Amazon #1 Hot New Release & #1 Best Seller in New Age

“Wings” elicits poetic passion and romantic mystery . . . enrapturing beauty and depth . . . the precise timing of each note, the spaces between the notes, and the distinct emotion impressed upon each note played that collectively results in nearly unmatched perfection.

- Aural Awakenings

“Wings” is luxuriant and sumptuous, every single song is like a rich, silky, soothing balm for the soul. Truly radiant and soaring, this is his finest work yet. Brilliant!
