Today we’d like to introduce you to Riel Peters.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
Started in the 10th as “Vo1c3” with a collective named Creative Mindz Ent. Met a guy by the name Josh Halo. When CME passed away, he was the only one that stuck around. So we been rocking ever since. Providence Rd. is the collective. Riel Peters came from my birth name, Gabriel Peters. Just thought it sounded cool until I looked it up and the name Riel has more power than I could have thought. I’ve been Riel for close to six years now.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Everybody got the things to go through to get to where they’re going. Money problems. Car breaking down. Folks not believing the vision. Etc. I don’t care to speak on it too much because that’s dead language. We progressing. We growing. Maybe when I’m actually a name, I’ll talk to yaw again. Who knows.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Songwriter. Producer. Beatmaker. Mix & Master Engineer. Nothing too crazy these days because you can’t just do one thing anymore. Gotta be valuable. I love producing. Writing was first, but I love producing records for myself and others.
Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
Establish myself as a simple man’s brand. That gotta ring to it, huh? The closest thing to Jet Life Recordings. Blue collar mentality. Get the work done. Pay your bills. Do what you love. Have the community that I’ve built rely on me to give them what I do best.
