Zenéjét leginkább a latin, rock, lírai és jazz dallamok jellemzik.

Peter Gerendas was born in Budapest. After graduating high school, he was an actor at the Déryné Theater then joined Los Pachungos, a group who played Latin American music.

After this success, he went on writing songs for Zoran and Zsuzsa Koncz. In 1994 he is awarded the Liszt Prize. In 1999 he receives the Huszka Jeno Prize and the "Singer of the Year" Emerton Award.
