Peter Light is a singer songwriter from Guelph, Ontario, Canada. When he’s not doing solo shows he’s busy playing with a trio called “Outside The Box”. The group includes: Gwen Potter (viola d’amore) and David Lum (multi instrumentalist). Hold down the fort as they belt out everything from classics to Celtic and back again to Pop! On the original side, they write and play across all genres (nothing is safe!).
Outside The Box is mature, seasoned, and original. They have variety in their show. Some songs are just fun, others thought provoking, most have a lot of energy and humour. Above all else they are musically accessible honest performers with broad appeal. They also perform as a solo act – Peter Light, a duo with Peter and Gwen on viola or as the trio.
Outside The Box keeps audiences engaged with their energetic music and performance. They simply relish in making people smile, tap their feet and ponder life a little.
After playing a house concert at the Grise Fine Art Gallery in Penetanguishene, this is what Debbie Grise had to say: Peter Light has a way with storytelling in song, that engages and delights his audience. Gwen adds pleasing layers to the performance with her viola d’amore and light harmonies. The two perfectly compliment each other. D. Grisé
Glen Silverthorne, music columnist for the Brantford Expositor, had this to say:
“The first half of the (performance) provided happy upbeat covers and originals starting with Kansas City. The band immediately followed with a catchy rock original, We Belong To The Fifties. This infectious song really got the packed house finger snapping, toe tapping, table finger drumming, or just clapping the rhythms. During many of the vocals by Light, with Potter doing voice harmony, we heard some groovy scat singing with those ooby-doobys, da-ba da-bas, and scooby-do-bop-bops cleverly inserted into the arrangements. The trio soon followed with another original with a nice shuffle beat and written by Light called Hopelessly In Love.”
