Music and Lyrics
by Peter Link
Thru Me, a compilation of favorite songs written over the last twenty years, was produced, orchestrated and sung by the composer. Taken from both his work in the theater and from his own personal experience, the styles range from theatrical to pop.
Peter Link is probably best known for his work as a composer/lyricist. He has won the NY Drama Desk Award for his work in Salvation, out of which came his first Gold Record, “If You Let Me Make Love To You, Then Why Can’t I Touch You?”, which sold over two million records.
Peter is a two-time Tony Award nominee on Broadway both for his musical score of Joseph Papp’s Much Ado About Nothing, and for his score for Neil Simon’s The Good Doctor.
He has also produced and orchestrated for many of the Watchfire artists: Julia Wade, Mindy Jostyn, Jenny Burton, Tom Tipton, Osceola Davis, and Bobby Stanton, to name a few. For complete info on Peter Link, read his wiki article.
