Well Dressed For The Art Show(NY, NY- June 3, 2008) Independent singer/songwriter Peter Hadar will release his highly anticipated album Well Dressed For The Art Show on his own Cool Weirdo Music label, Tuesday June 17th; but not before unveiling the project before a world-wide audience on June 3rd, for an advanced screening on BET.com’s “Listen Up”. In conjunction with this major exposure, the 13-track album will be available for download on his MySpace.com/PeterHadar site.
Hadar and his music are receiving impressive endorsements from major publications like URB Magazine, who aptly named him “the next, next Big thing in R&B”, when including him in their 2008 list of the Top 100 Artists. Major online mentions also include Billboard, VIBE, SOHH, About.com, SingersRoom and SoulTracks; amongst a host of others.
The album Well Dressed For The Art Show is an electronic upgrade to his critically acclaimed debut Memories Of The Heart. Hadar’s hearty, sultry vocals lace highly synthesized baselines, and speaks to a generation starving for something out of the box. Sidestepping traditional R&B formulas, the album unleashes a new generation of hypnotic energy; often deemed ‘Electronic R&B’. Even more recently featured on progressive imprints like okayplayer.com, and Vapors Magazine, this independent power-house is primed for the big leagues; an early review of the album in the June edition of YRB Magazine provides it’s first rave review.
Hadar who started his working career representing top fashion brands in and around NYC, got his break styling for other indie and signed artists. Since releasing “Memories…”, Hadar has been featured on stages with a myriad of top performers including Mos Def, Questlove, Taleb Kweli, Dwele, Musiq, Bilal, Q-tip, Estelle, Pete Rock, Raheem Devaugn, and Chrisette Michelle to name a few.
Peter Hadar will embark on his own 10-city tour starting Thursday June 5th in Philadelphia; with stops in LA, Detroit, Dallas, and NYC. His first single “Painted” is ripping thru underground and online radio stations, internationally. Intent on bringing his unique ‘Cool Weirdo’ style to the masses; this bonafied Hustler is well on his way.
