Peter has had numerous top spots in the Norwegian charts. He has released 11 albums, including seven studio albums, three live albums, and two "Best Of" albums. He has also released many singles, ranging from hard rock to beautiful ballads. In addition, he now presents his own television program, Petter’s Pop Show.
Peter began his music career in the late '70s. He and his band became household names with several appearances on the popular youth TV show, Halv Sju. As a member of many rock and cover bands in the '80s, his artist name Peter Wave was first used when his band Army released the single "Waiting Around" in 1983.
His solo career reached new heights in the early '90s with the release of "Æ Længte Hjæm" (I'm Missing Home). This song became the anthem of his home city, Trondheim, and is still as popular as ever. In 2015, the song was performed live at the Norwegian Constitution Day Celebrations in London, and broadcast on Norway's national television station, NRK TV.
Peter recorded his recent English language studio Album "Raise Your Glasses" with top British record producer Stuart Epps, at his studios in Berkshire. Stuart has previously worked with artists including Elton John, George Harrison, Led Zeppelin, Oasis, Robbie Williams, Bill Wyman, Twisted Sister and Chris Rea.
