South African born, USA-bred Xhosa singer, songwriter, composer and organist Peter Ngqibs recently released his official full-length album, Let Me Go – a piece of work that has been long in the making. The 13-track album features the melodic, uplifting and inspiring first single “Broken” in 2017.  The single, as remixed by Mikey Gallagher (Leona Lewis, Deborah Cox, Danny Howells) climbed to the Top 30 in the U.K. Commercial Pop Club Charts.  His music video for “Free Me” was nominated for Best Music Video by the Jersey Shore Film Festival (2018); “Over Again” was nominated by the Garden State Film Festival (2018) and the Berlin Motion Picture Festival (2017) for Best Music Video and Best Rock Music Video respectively.  Although based in the States, Peter still calls South Africa home. 

Born and raised in Pretoria, Waterkloof Glen, Peter (born Ngqibeko Peter Ncanywa) has had music in his bones, from as early as his primary school days.  Peter joined the Drakensberg Boys Choir, which saw him touring, travelling the world and solidifying his dreams and career as a musician.  After the Drakensberg, Peter joined the National School of the Arts in Braamfontein. From there, he found his way to the United States where he truly came into his own musically. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance and a Minor in Psychology.
