Peter Cupples Live @ Miss D's
My first encounter with the great Peter Cupples occurred when I heard his track ‘Love of Another World’ in the early 1980’s – this great track has been one of my favourites ever since then. Having enjoyed some of the hits by Peter’s band ‘Stylus’ over the years, it was a great treat to see him perform live some years ago and then develop a friendship with one of Australia’s greatest artists. Filming and producing the performance at Miss D’s was a real treat for me, Peter just keeps getting better and better. Interestingly enough, ‘Love of Another World’ was produced by Louie Shelton, a fact that I only came to know this year.
On these film clips, Peter perfoms a number of classics and new material along with some great standards from artists such as Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts tribute by Peter Cupples, Living in A World Of Make Believe , an original track by Peter Life Goes On, Peter's tribute to Max Merritt Slipping Away - The great standard Fly Me To the Moon (Peter Cupples opened for Frank Sinatra at the opening of the Gold Coast's Sanctuary Cove Resort with Whitney Housten and Peter Allen).

Peter Cupples is an Australian singer, songwriter and producer who's career spans several decades, commencing as lead singer of 70's band Stylus. Peter Cupples first came into prominence in 1975 as lead singer and songwriter for the blue-eyed soul band Stylus.
Stylus released four albums which included such hits as 'Summer Breeze' 'World of Make/believe' 'So much Love' and 'Work out fine' to name a few. Stylus became the first all white band to be signed by U.S. Company Tamala Motown, and had moderate success internationally under the Motown banner. Stylus split in 1980 and Peter went solo achieving a top twenty with his first release 'Fear of Thunder', 'Blame it on the Weather' was also a success not only for Peter, but also for John Farnham, as a part of his return.
Peter became a regular on the Midday show after doing a song called 'Happy Ending' to close the Opening of the entertainment centre in Sydney, a channel nine spectacular. Peter became a regular with all variety shows, 'Hey Hey it's Saturday' 'Tonight Live with Steve Visard' 'I.M.T'. 'G.M.A.' still today, and fifteen years of 'Carols by Candlelight' Christmas Eve at the Myer Music Bowl. Peter continues to write and record albums, he is heavily involved in certain charity's, recently writing songs for the 'Make a Wish foundation' and the 'Sacred Heart foundation'.
Peter also wrote the song 'Best of the Best' for the racing hall of fame, and the kangaroo's team of the century tribute. Peter has done many main events, none bigger than opening for Frank Sinatra at sanctuary cove. This is a great product from an Australian artist who surprises, and delights us with his musical credibility, and song writing prowess. His new album 'about time' is now Peter often works with Jon English and they are currently working on the 'Uncorked' project.
