Peter Richardson

Indie // Killiney, Dublin // He/Him

Peter Richardson is a 23-year old singer/songwriter from Dublin. An avid songwriter since the age of 15, Peter grew up surrounded by music. After testing the waters with his original songs at a college open mic, Peter began properly recording his music at home in the summer of 2020. A few months later in October he released his debut single, “The End of The World”, an indie folk ballad filled with choral vocals and stirring, apocalyptic lyrics and instrumentation.

Peter’s dramatic indie folk sound draws from a wide range of influences, drawing on the poeticism and varied sounds of artists such as Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Hozier, Lorde and Ben Howard among countless others. Peter also draws influence from great Irish folk singer/songwriters, such as Paul Brady and Declan O’Rourke.

Peter’s second single, “Please Don’t Believe Me” released in March of 2021, and further expanded his ambitious home-crafted sound. The “Gripping sophomore track” (Hot Press) was featured on RTÉ Radio 1 and Hot Press’ “Track of The Day” upon release. Indie Buddie remarked the track “oozes passion, compelling melodies, and cinematic appeal”, describing it as “a refined display of contemporary pop marking Peter Richardson an artist to keep an eye on.” Peter then went on to begin working with prolific cork producer Cian Sweeney (1000 Beasts) on his debut debut EP ‘Then & Now’, which released on July 10th 2022. This was followed shortly by his debut headline show in Whelan’s, which after selling out the upstairs venue weeks in advance was upgraded to the Main Room, and his debut festival performance at Kaleidoscope festival. Following the success of his debut EP and headline show, Peter has returned to the studio, this time with Drogheda-based producer Dan DeBurca, and has been working over the winter on three new tracks, the first of which will release this April and elevate Peter’s sound to the next level. In line with this series of releases, Peter is returning with his next headline show in the Sound House on April 7th. With his brand new music, and returning headline performance, Peter is looking forward to building momentum towards an even bigger summer than the last.
