R&B vocalist Peter Hadar (born Peter Winstead, Jr.) grew up in a supportive Newark, New Jersey household. The son of a gospel musician, Hadar was naturally drawn to music but opted to enter the fashion world as a stylist and salesman. After he lost a job, he redirected his creative energy toward music. He wrote and recorded his debut, Memories of the Heart, with studio assistance from Mike Genato, and self-released it in August 2006. It introduced his husky but sensitive voice, somewhere between those of Jaheim and the Foreign Exchange's Phonte, along with his slight left-field twist on adult contemporary R&B. Hadar continued to cultivate a following through word of mouth and online support, releasing Well Dressed for the Art Show (issued in 2008, the year Urb magazine featured him in their annual Next 100 series), the She’s 4 Months EP (2009), and Take Off Victoria (2011) on his Cool Weirdo label. ~ Andy Kellman
