Heavily inspired by the genre-defying works of Porcupine Tree, Nautical Operator is the solo project of musician Peter Crofton. Born 1991 in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, he has spent much of his career writing and performing with progressive rock band The Rupert Selection.
In 2014, he released his debut solo record "Nautical Operator" under his own label, Moiety Recordings. As a self-taught musician and producer, he has focused on blending the elements of progressive rock music with the peaceful and nostalgic atmospheres inspired by Boards of Canada and Tycho. His 2nd full-length studio album, "Delta", is set to be released in early 2019.
