Peter Mandic started writing songs after a friend suggested he take songwriting at Canada's music school, Humber College. Ten years later, three CDs, over fifty songs, and a fourth CD on the way, Peter Mandic and his band are having fun. In 2005, Razor Wire from Mandic’s third CD ‘I Used to Work’ was featured throughout an episode of CBC’s The Fifth Estate. Inspiration comes from everyday people and events seen through a storyteller’s eyes.
I Used to Work, Peter Mandic Band … acoustic tones as warm and soothing as a summer breeze … the songs are beautifully subtle and understated… Mandic’s singing voice is nothing fancy, nor does it need to be. His tone is somewhere between Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, but he’s not imitating anyone…lovely back-to-basics music that goes nicely with sunshine, a cold drink, and a barbecue.
