Mike Peters @ SXSW 1995
Mike Peters first played at SXSW as a solo artist in 1995 and later with both Coloursøund and The Alarm. It was whilst at SXSW in 2006 that Mike Peters met Texas Entertainment Insurance Executive James Chippendale (himself a Leukemia survivor and bone marrow transplant recipient), and created the Love Hope Strength Foundation.
Mike Peters ‘Declaration’ at both SXSW and NYC promises inspirational performances of music, memory and innovation that will allow fans and supporters to see another side of the musician that is Mike Peters.
Upon its original release on February 13th 1984, ‘Declaration’, The Alarm’s debut album, instantly catapulted singer Mike Peters on to the worldwide stage. Now thirty years later, Mike Peters will perform the entire album in full, with a unique one-man band ‘Alarm’ style show which will highlight the original alt-folk, acoustic punk protest roots of the songs that form the core of the album’s original intent. The sonic blueprint for The Alarm’s organic sound was amplified acoustic guitars, harmonica and a drum kit; a formidable sonic attack that will be reinforced in a contemporary setting when Mike Peters’ ‘Declaration’ will be unveiled in the US to coincide with a 2014 remake of the album that will also be showcased at SXSW this March.
