Pedro Costa is an indie rock artist based in Ontario, Canada. Born of Portuguese roots he spent part of his childhood living in Europe which influenced his taste in music. Although he was involved in music in various capacities throughout his life, he became serious about song writing late in 2008. In February 2009 released his first EP “The Light”. The title track has charted nationally in Poland and has been garnering attention in all corners of the world.
Pedro is actively working on remixes, collaborations, and of course original tracks. Stay tuned to the site or other social networking pages.
Surrounded by all types of music Pedro sang constantly as a child. But it was during his final years of high school that Pedro began exploring his talents. As a member of the acapella quartet “4 Vocal F.X.” he performed at many community events including some shows raising funds for various charities. They also recorded jingles for radio and television. At the same time Pedro led a hard rock band called “My Pet Fish Gus” which won the local battle of the bands in 1993. At this time he wrote many songs to record with the band. On top of all this Pedro also led a local Portuguese band called “Malta Nova” that played at many Portuguese parties.
In 2000 he became involved with the site MP3.com as an internet artist promoter. His promotion group became #1 in the world by the end of year 2001. However, with the changes/elimination of artist royalty payments at the site MP3.com he decided to close down the services in the beginning of 2003. This decision would give him more time for family and to re-initiate his own musical career.
