Celebrated harpist Peter Sterling's life serves as a reminder to all who present themselves as open vessels for the Divine: once the Spirit unleashes its creativity, there is no stop button. Peter’s response to his heavenly calling 25 years ago blossomed into an endlessly creative multi-media career, spanning 16 studio albums, numerous Music Awards, a book called Hearing the Angels Sing, and an impressive series of crystal-frosted Mandala art prints enough to fill a gallery. Peter also creates sacred geometry-stained glass art and presents dynamic workshops on the science of sound healing and sacred geometry. 

Success came quickly for Peter when the music label “World Disc” released his first album, Harp Magic, which was nominated in 1994 for NAIRD’s (now A2IM) Best String Album Award. In 2004, Sterling’s album Hap Dreams sat at the top of New Age Radio’s Top 100 for 8 weeks and garnered an Album of the Year nomination. In 2005, Peter signed on with renowned new age music label Real Music to release his Shadow, Mist, and Light CD. Peter’s self-released 2008 effort, The Sands of Time, earned a nomination for a Hollywood Music Award for Best New Age Album. His 2012 release, Patterns of Reflection, soared to #1 on the ZMR 100 International Radio Chart, also grabbing a nomination for Album of the Year. 

The very next year, his album Twilight Serenade ascended to the #1 position on the ZMR Chart, while the track entitled “Isle of Light” earned a bronze medal in the Global Music Awards for 2016. His 2017 CD, Sacred Visions, went to #3 on the ZMR and won a Silver Global Music Award. In 2021, Peter’s album Sanctuary of Light won the Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best New Age Albums as well as the COVR Visionary Music Award. Most recently, his 2022 release, The Winding Way, won the Gold COVR Visionary Music Award for Best New Age Album, further cementing his status as a leading figure in the New Age music genre. 

A favorite on Internet radio such as Pandora, Sirius, XM Satellite, and Soundscapes Radio, as well as United and American airlines, Peter’s angelic music will continue to reach the masses, heal lives, balance brains, open hearts, and connect people to their innate spiritual essence. Exploring Sedona’s remote canyons daily and living out of his trusty van, Peter followed every Divine hunch and inspiration as a free-spirited seeker. The Celtic Harp serendipitously entered his life on a fateful day in Sedona as an answer to a prayer on how best to fulfill his unique life purpose. Now toting his harp with him everywhere he went, Peter surrendered himself completely, allowing Grace to unfold through him amidst Sedona’s epic scenery and energy vortices. Having only a few lessons under his belt from the seller of the Celtic Harp, the Angels took over, guiding Peter’s hands and causing them to move masterfully within a few short months. No one was more surprised than Peter, whose skill level demonstrated that of a virtuoso rather than a mere beginner. 

Peter felt inspired to make drastic changes to his diet and lifestyle, switching to vegetarian “living” foods and immersing himself in healing treatments to upgrade his physical and energetic bodies through shamanic, chiropractic, energy healing, and herbal treatments. With his newfound inner attunement, the Angels continued to reach Peter’s inner ear with heavenly sound transmissions, a sound that many mystics have called “the Music of the Spheres.” 

Little did Peter know that one day his angelic music would garner testimonials from around the world for its miraculous healing effects: softening the hearts of the dying during their transition, being used by mothers at the time of birth, and easing their autistic children’s suffering. For many, it has become the quintessential healing soundtrack for meditation and massage. “My mission is to create music that can create an experience of transcendence in the listener; strike a chord on their heartstrings and remind them of home—a feeling of oneness,” Peter commented.

Peter scarcely dreamed that his music would have a massive worldwide audience back when he was recording his first 8 tracks on a cassette tape in Byron Bay, Australia, and marketing it on foot around Sedona with its hand-drawn cover art. Now, through Internet radio, CD, DVD, his website, and countless other forums, Peter’s angelic music will continue to reach the masses, heal lives, balance brains, open hearts, and connect people to their innate spiritual essence. 

On a walk into his beautiful West-Sedona home, you will find dozens of his canvas and wood-mounted “Portals of Light” Mandala art prints, glossed and shimmering with finely-ground quartz crystal specks. Peter’s stained-glass pieces adorn much of the house as well, which are the inspiration used to create the Mandala design for the “Portals of Light” series. When not in the studio working on his next album, Peter is often found working in his organic vegetable and herb garden, ensuring fresh, high-energy food for his family, which now consists of his partner Crystal, and their 5-year-old son Micah. Peter also enjoys guiding out-of-towners on Sacred Land Journeys to Sedona’s spectacular vortex sites that have captured his heart and inspired his art and music.
