Peter One - Come Back To Me LP



Come Back To Me is a multi-lingual blend of afropop, 70s-influenced country and folk, featuring a blend of sounds from an artist who has been on a most unique life journey. The heartfelt collection of folk songs sung in English, French and Guro shares tales of painful divorce, love and loss, as well as reflection on concepts of the healing power of music, diaspora, immigration and home.

Originally from the Cote d’Ivoire, Peter One was once a star in West Africa, as one half of a duo—alongside his writing partner Jess Sah Bi—who created a seminal folk album Our Garden Needs Its Flowers in 1985. The album gained momentum across the region, and found Peter performing his music for presidents, first ladies, adoring sold-out crowds, and even soundtracking the release of Nelson Mandela from prison in 1990 as shown on the BBC.

He moved to the U.S. in the ’90s due to political unrest in his home country and suffering political persecution for creating the Ivory Coast’s first musicians union, as well as an attempt to pursue his music career stateside. However, due to cost of living, he was forced to switch jobs and has been working in relative obscurity as a nurse first in Delaware, then Tennessee, for the better part of 20 years, until now.
