Peter Buffett: Composer, Singer, Activist speaks about his life and new CD, IMAGINARY KINGDOM

Peter Buffett, a well-established composer/producer, has released his third vocal album, IMAGINARY KINGDOM.

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Buffett began his career in San Francisco writing music for commercials. He has eight released albums on Narada, Epic and Hollywood labels as well as six releases on his own label - including the EMMY award winning CD, Ojibwe.

Buffett also composed and produced the score for the Duncan Group production of WISCONSIN – AN AMERICAN PORTRAIT, a regional EMMY award winner. Highlights of his film and television work include the Fire Dance scene in the Oscar winning film Dances With Wolves, and the score for 500 Nations, the eight-hour miniseries for CBS produced by Kevin Costner.

Buffett's theatrical production, Spirit – The Seventh Fire, originally launched as a successful PBS pledge event, was located on the National Mall for the Smithsonian's opening of the National Museum of the American Indian. As co-chairman of the NoVo Foundation, Buffett helps guide the strategic plan that he and his wife Jennifer will implement with a small dedicated staff over the coming years.
