Peter Asher

We first came to know Peter Asher, CBE, as one half of Peter & Gordon, the 60s British Invasion era duo whose debut single--the Lennon/McCartney composition “A World Without Love”-- rocketed to number one in over 30 countries. Nine more US Top 40 hits followed, and by the time of Peter & Gordon's final chart success, Peter Asher had embarked on a new career as a record producer and Director of A & R at the Beatles’ Apple Records label. There he discovered and signed James Taylor, and as Apple began to disintegrate, Peter moved with James to America and founded Peter Asher Management in Los Angeles in the early 1970s.

Peter’s “A Musical Memoir of the 60s and Beyond” multimedia concert events are in their 10th year in 2019. “Memoir” remains a unique creative performance that prompted the New York Times to comment that Mr. Asher “Conjured history in the making, before it was set in stone”, while the Wall Street Journal correctly observed that “Mr. Asher knew everyone who rocked and anyone who mattered”. His radio show on SiriusXM’s the Beatles Channel, “Peter Asher: From Me To You” is a runaway success, with millions of listeners each week, as it nears its 100th episode.
