andrew sutherland (AJ)

peter nevland Peter started as a lead engineer for Motorola on Apple’s G4 chip.  Then he left corporate life to travel the world with Spoken Groove, the unique brand he created, sold over $100,000 in merchandise & recorded 7 albums, 2 live DVDs & 1 book.  In addition to his writing & performing he now also creates marketing strategies for small businesses looking to sell more of their products.     His creative writing curriculum takes school kids around the world from hating writing to loving it & producing their own work in as little as 45 minutes.  That kind of creativity inspires beginning performers to go for it. Justin Bieber is just one of the many artists who have benefited from his advice & encouragement.

When he’s not travelling the globe working in concert production, AJ spends part of his time at Resound Media HQ in Sheffield, developing thisispromotions.com. His willingness to get stuck in & natural ability to make himself incredible useful opened up the opportunity to work with internationally renowned artists at the age of just 18. Having recently toured with The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Snoop Dogg & UK artist Chipmunk, AJ is well connected & offers artists valuable insight into touring & the logistics that come with it.
