Going to the FMC every day after school "I [Peter] literally grew up in the music store watching the greats... And not so greats... pass through to play music every day. David Lindley used to come in all the time to just mess with stuff and jam with my grandma, Taj Mahal would always stop in to talk to my grandparents when he came through town and as I got older, Tom Waits, Keb Mo and a slew of other folks would all come trough to check the place out." Peter's grandmother could play anything with strings and his mom followed suit. Ellen Harper, talented guitar and banjo player, gave rise three artistic sons, the now famous musician, Ben Harper. The world famous Author Joel Harper. And last but certainly not least the multi talented artist Peter. "Couldn't one of you guys have been a doctor or a lawyer?" Peter often teases his older brothers. It's all in good fun though, in reality, Peter wouldn't have it any other way. "My family is like a group of artistic super heroes. We use our powers for the betterment of society and the individuals around us. There are a lot of people spreading hate, especially these days. Using art to spread love and counteract that message is a must."
