Having first picked up an acoustic six-string aged 14 in post-communist Slovakia, Peter Aristone found an escape through music that he had been searching for throughout his life. Now an established musician in his own right, he reflects on the joy he finds in playing the instrument through every track he creates.
Despite having worked long and hard to present himself as a determined and confident artist, it wasn't until he met Sacha Skarbek, best known for writing and producing the Miley Cyrus smash "Wrecking Ball", in 2014 that his career truly set itself on an upward trajectory.
What followed was critical acclaim from the likes of MTVU and Performer Magazine among others, all of whom championed Aristone as a real artist to watch, while Aristone himself has since been wowing crowds across America with acclaimed artist Marc Broussard.
While many of today's musical counter-parts deliver the same dull and drab, often cheesy pop that dominates the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, Aristone prefers to do things a little differently and has, in his short career, managed to reinvent what it means to create music that matters, with a folk-rock edge. His passion for playing, together with an intense vocal which undeniably hits home when you hear it, means his music transforms in a way few other artists have managed to make happen.
With performance plans already in the works for the rest of the year - some of which are sure to delight fans of a certain British artist - PopWrapped is delighted to premiere the video for Aristone's newest track "Fire Inside."
With a toe-tapping rhythm and a soulful smooth vocal, "Fire Inside" serves a a great introduction to those who have yet to discover this hugely talented artist and will no doubt make for a great audience sing-along during his upcoming performances.
