In the Fall of 2008, while still in school, Peter Terry began opening for acts passing through Evanston, IL's infamous SPACE venue. With no recordings to date at that point, he borrowed some money to record five acoustic solo tracks down in Bloomington, IN at Airtime Studios. One of those tracks would be the first meeting and collaboration between Terry and future Cello player Stephen Juergensen. That same Winter he found other venues throughout the Chicago area that welcomed his acoustic guitar and soulful vocals but his sound was evolving faster than any of his friends had anticipated. During that time he was recording more songs, playing in various bands, and immercing himself with the Chicago music scene, learning as much as he possibly could from colleagues and friends that he often played with. It soon became apparent that his writing style was becoming too diverse and elaborate for merely vocals and guitar. His first meeting with Chris Spann came through Terry's best friend (frequent writing partner Corey Frye) in Terry's parent's living room in the Spring of 09'. Shortly after, Terry left for a 6 month hiatus at sea, putting a temporary halt on the project. While singing a cappella on a cruise line to earn money, Terry got word of a childhood friend studying Double Bass. On his return to Indianapolis in 2010, Terry invited that childhood friend Andrew "Chuck" Goodlett again to his parent's living room to talk about playing together in Chicago. For a month Terry slept on the floor of Goodlett's apartment in Evanston, teaching every song he had written. They played where they could, when they could, accumulating musician friends to sit in for vacant roles until September when Spann and Juergensen returned permanently to create "The Chicago City Profits". Peter Terry & The CCP create music that leave your father longing to rebuild his LP collection and sounds that will have your friends reevaluating their musical parameters. What began as folk has evolved into hints of blues, rock, pop, and even orchestral rock. No matter what the song may call for, PTCCP play because they love what they do and enjoy sharing with old friends and new faces.
