Peter Link, Sundown's composer, won the New York Drama Desk Award for his Off-Broadway show, Salvation, out of which came his first Gold Record, "If You Let Me Make Love To You (Then Why Can't I Touch You?)", which sold over two million copies. His scores to Neil Simon's The Good Doctor and Joseph Papp's production of Much Ado About Nothing, which was presented at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park, on Broadway, and as a television special, earned him back-to-back Tony Award nominations. Other Broadway credits include Ulysses In Nighttown starring Zero Mostel, Lysistrata starring Melina Mercouri, The Mighty Gents starring Morgan Freeman, and the cult classic King of Hearts.

Link is also the composer, producer and director of The Jenny Burton Experience, a pop/inspirational/R&B act that broke all box office records playing to packed houses during its seven year run in New York City. His songs have been recorded by Johnnie Mathis, Dionne Warwick, Peggy Lee and Mae West.
