Following a year that saw him sign to Columbia Records and embark on his first sold-out tour, singer, songwriter, and producer Peter McPoland begins 2022 with the release of his brand-new single “String Lights” – listen HERE.
The emotionally charged power ballad showcases Peter’s captivating vocals and his undeniable knack for storytelling that everyone can find a piece of themselves in. Painting vivid imagery using his handcrafted lyrics, Peter tells a tale of stolen wine, crying on the floor, the fear of growing up and the ultimate acceptance that everything ends.
At just 20-years-old, Peter McPoland creates the kind of finespun folk-pop that feels both beautifully lived-in and undeniably original. McPoland picked up guitar at the age of 14 and taught himself to play, finding lessons to be too regimented. Within a year he’d started writing his own songs, mining inspiration from folk artists like John Prine and Gregory Alan Isakov. As shown on breakout hits like his self-released single “Romeo & Juliet,” the Texas-bred artist has an incredible gift for capturing the most nuanced emotional experiences, then bringing that expression to life in idiosyncratic detail.
