Pete's Bio

Hi,

 

I started playing guitar aged 7, back home in my native Perth, Western Australia. By aged 9 I was already teaching guitar for pocket money, and I did my first 'paid' gig at 13.

After a decade of playing in various bands across Australia, the UK beckoned. I wanted to broaden my musical experience. Fortunately, the gamble paid off and I started getting offers for session and touring work with artists as musically diverse as: Dido, Natalie Imbruglia, Anastacia, Gary Barlow, Gareth Gates, Alfie Boe, Paolo Nutini, Kevin Simm, Cassandra, Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes To Hollywood), Rick Wakeman, Callaghan and Haken. I have also been integral to various original projects in that time: One Eskimo, Hotleg (Justin Hawkins. The Darkness), and Headspace.  Having served time in the musicals 'We Will Rock You' and 'Rock Of Ages', I am also no stranger to London's West End.

When I'm not performing live or in the studio, my time is spent writing, producing and teaching guitar privately.

Please feel free to take a look at the Teaching section of the site for more details.

Thanks!
