027: Peter Hollens: Creative Entrepreneur – Part I

The Charismatic Voice with Elizabeth Zharoff

re Charismatic voice 8 1

If there’s one artist who has inspired my current vocal endeavors more than any other, it’s Peter Hollens – THE GUY who made multiple layering of the same human voice popular on YouTube. Peter now has 400 videos on his channel. Some are elaborate collaborations with well-known artists and some are just him, multiple times. 

While many singers only need to think about singing one line and maybe a few harmonies, Peter has to think about singing tons of lines. Just imagine the additional time it takes for him to create a song because he is the whole band. His songs are also released with music videos of high production value. His channel has been going strong since its debut in 2011, it’s amazing how he’s able to keep up his pace – even with a team in place.

Now actively taking a role beyond singing, Peter offers consulting and advising services for creators and creative companies. Today, Peters talks about his influences and mentors, how he’s able to release music videos consistently, and his process of producing high-quality videos.


In this episode, you will hear:

  • Voice type he prefers in acapella
  • Sound engineering and techniques for layering the voices
  • Peter’s music influences and mentors
  • Educating creators on true value
  • The process of making a video and how he’s able to release videos consistently
  • The power of professional video editing
  • What makes a good collaborator
  • Tips for collaborating with your spouse in music and life
