It’s now been over five years since we first saw Peter Nevland & Paul Finley at The Wizard Academy near Austin, Texas, Roy Williams amazing place. Part of the program included the very talented Peter & Paul. Since I’m on Peter’s email list, I have followed his adventures over the past five years. And as Roy Williams has said, “…hearing Peter perform is like … taking a running leap off the rim of the Grand Canyon with your hands tied behind your back so that the only way to pull the parachute’s ripcord is with your toes.”

This is not the first time I’ve shared by love of Peter’s talent.

Some four years ago, Joy and I spent a day at the Wizard Academy outside Austin. Since that time we have been on Roy William’s mailing list, allowing us to follow the many offerings of the business, marketing and writing institution. While there, we were entertained by two young men, “Peter and Paul.” Paul’s a very skilled musician and Peter — well Peter is a bundle of creative energy that completely captures your attention, as if caught off guard, causing one to wonder what will be coming at you next. As Roy WIlliams has stated; “…hearing Peter perform is like … taking a running leap off the rim of the Grand Canyon with your hands tied behind your back so that the only way to pull the parachute’s ripcord is with your toes.”

We have not had a chance to see Peter since that 2006 July, however I have followed him through his “Spoken Groove” newsletters, web site and YouTube. Here’s one video current on his web site.
