Speed Control

Straight out of -40 degrees weather in Canada’s Yukon, Graeme Peters, brother Jody Peters and Ian March formed the power trio Speed Control. The three members all come from a jazz and classical background but have turned to their true passion – rock n’ roll. While studying at the University of Toronto’s Jazz Performance Program, multi-instrumentalist Graeme Peters embraced all musical genres becoming a highly sought after touring and studio musician. Graeme recorded and played with Canadian jazz greats Ingrid Jensen and Terry Promane as well as Inuit throat singer, Tanya Tagaq. In 2012, he co-wrote a rock opera, The Busker and The Barista, which features Speed Control as both band and actors. Graeme was hired by Yukon’s Dept of Health for the role of Captain Germfighter, giving 40 performances to primary students. Graeme studied education prior to transferring into the jazz program and specializes in working with behaviour challenged youth.
