When Peven returned to Chicago he began his solo career with his compositions “Gabriel”, “Watch Them Come – Men From the Nile”, and “Someday”. “Gabriel” charted in the UK and became a classic, garnering him a spot on Spin magazine’s Top 40 Best Deep House tracks of all time.
Recently, Peven served as resident faculty for Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead program at the John F. Kennedy Center, mentoring the future of Jazz. He has also returned to his studio between live engagements all over the world. Peven’s entertainment company, Studio Confession, has multiple labels representing various genres and placement for artists to come. There is much to anticipate this year including collaborations with Mousse T. and Tony Touch. With a catalog of countless songs including the release “Fuego” due out in 2016, Peven shows no signs of stopping.
