Peter Hadar doesn’t mind being called a “weirdo.”
“People are afraid to go against the grain,” says Hadar. “It’s cool to be different. It’s cool to be strange.”
Baby Hadar, 2, looks like he’s ready to set sail at his uncle s New Jersey wedding.
A five-year-old Hadar spends time with his mother, Antonia Winstead, who is proud of his success though not aware of his music’s sensual undertones.
Hadar first pursued fashion before music and continues to express his creativity through his wardrobe.
“I’m a big fan of Tom Ford, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent and 21MC,” he says. “They all think outside the box but everything makes sense.”
Hadar cleans up well.
“[My music is like] a tall glass of Merlot,” says Hadar. “Merlot relaxes me, gets me in a cool mood, and I think that s what my music does.”
“Well Dressed for the Art Show,” Hadar’s sophomore album, explores lust and love over funky beats.
“It’s an album about art; the title just means I’m prepared to present my art to you, the listener,” he says. “It’s like 13 different outfits and styles. Pretty eclectic—soul, hip-hop, rock, jambalaya, electronic, progressive and edgy.”
Hadar checks his reflection, content with what he sees.
