Peter One is a singer-songwriter from Côte d’Ivoire, currently living and making music in Nashville, TN. In the 1980s Peter One and his then duo partner Jess Sah Bi released their debut LP, Our Garden Needs Its Flowers, to mass appeal. The act quickly became one of the most popular bands not only in the Ivory Coast but all of broader West Africa, filling stadiums and playing on television and radio across the continent on many occasions.
Due to the violent political unrest and economic hardship in Côte d’Ivoire, Peter immigrated to the US in the 90s to pursue his musical career. That plan was quickly derailed. Over the last 20 years, Peter has worked as a nurse in the United States, while slowly writing and recording music at home. He’s now finished his first new record in over three decades. Stay tuned for more to come on that.
