"Of all the artists that I have worked with, Peter Block is the best project I’ve ever worked on in my entire career," said Cannata.

Influenced by Broadway shows at a very young age, Peter began learning the piano on his grandfather’s 1926 Steinway piano. This eventually heightened his interest in composing music and lead him to take singing lessons. A native New Yorker, he has performed in Manhattan at venues such as Catch a Rising Star, Dangerfield’s, and Improvisation, opening for such greats as Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, and Jerry Seinfeld.

About Peter Block

His grandfather, who loved watching Broadway shows, influenced Peter from a very young age. He would write a graph of his own musical language on the playbill that he made up in order to remember the songs while watching the show. He would then go home and play the songs with the best harmonic and chord substitutions one could imagine, all from his ear. After his grandfather passed, Peter inherited his 1926 Steinway piano on which he received lessons on and began writing at a young age. Peter developed the ability to compose and till this day still owns his grandfather’s 1926 Steinway piano.
