My musical career was probably pre-ordained. Long before I was born, there was a musical history in my family. On my father's side, his father played the fiddle, my grandmother played the piano, my uncle played the accordion, and dad played the mandolin. They had their own band, and played colonial and Irish folk music at local dances.
Peter Cupples led the band Stylus, one of Australia's best-known acts, in the 1970s when pop/rock groups Sherbert, ACDC and Cold Chisel dominated. Stylus combined a soul and funk sound with rich harmonies. Eventually the group signed for American giant Tamla Motown, the first white group to sign for the label. Hits included "Summer Breeze" and "World Of Make Believe". During the 80s, Peter led The Peter Cupples Band which made two albums and has since maintained a significant presence in the industry.
This album was recorded in early 2000 but it was shelved because Peter wasn't happy with it. Eventually, after some perspective, Peter did release it and suggests that, as an analogue recording in a digital world, it has a unique charm.
