Peter Albert de Reyna on SoundBetter

I am a metal bass player and graduate of Berklee College of Music. In addition to my skills with the metal genre, I am trained in upright bass performance and possess a diverse skillset. I have toured & performed extensively for years. I am a master session musician.

During his time at Berklee College of Music, Peter studied under legendary bass players Bruce Gertz, Susan Hagen (of the Boston Symphony), Oscar Stagnaro, Anthony Vitti, and Victor Wooten. He graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor's Degree in Professional music with concentrations in Upright Bass Performance and Music Business. Upon his graduation, Peter played bass for the 2019 Berklee Commencement concert featuring Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, and Alex Lacamoire.

He has worked and performed with many well known artists such as Jeff Williams, Ronnie Earl, Dirk Verburen (Megadeth), and Steve Kirby. Peter has toured extensively with Seven Spires and is looking forward to expanding into greater international bounds.

As an upright bassist, Peter specializes in all idioms of the Jazz language and particularly Manouche/Gypsy Jazz. With a bachelor's degree from Berklee College of Music focused primarily on upright bass training, Peter has found himself studying and working with prolific jazz musicians as well songwriters and orchestras.

He attributes his highest set of skills to that of the overarching genre of Metal. As a member and primary contributor to countless projects and collaborations, he is considered a master and integral piece of the genre's future. He performs live in countless musical settings as an electric bassist.

    Peter is an incredible bass player! Not only because of his skills on the bass but because he is a full knowledgeable musician! He will always make sure to write bass lines that enhances de music he is tracking. I had the pleasure to work with him on some records and we will be working again pretty soon! Lastly, his tone is the best I ever heard!

    The only bass player to hire on any record. Metal, Jazz, Fusion, R&B, Pop, Country. Whatever the genre this guy is an absolute pro. You're making a mistake if you don't hire this guy.

    Working with Pete is an absolute pleasure. His composition skills, proficiency, and professionalism are unmatched. He knows exactly how to make things sound better than I had originally envisioned in every sense from the composition to the quality of the recording. As one of the most reliable people in the industry, Pete continues to be my go-to guy for bass. The only thing that is arguably better than Pete's masterful skill is his heart of gold. I would highly recommend him for your next project.

    I've played a few shows with Peter's band Seven Spires and they're top notch in their genre. I recently had Peter play electric bass on a cover and he quickly provided me with a high quality track with a high quality performance (plus a video)! Apart from being a good dude, he's a great bassist and look forward to any opportunity to play with him.

    Peter is an exceptional bassist. He is extremely versatile and is one of the nicest and funny people I’ve ever worked with. He works diligently and genuinely cares about projects, he puts forth his best effort to better the song. The parts he creates are bold and uniquely serve the song or performance. Highly recommend.

He is prepared and can deliver according to your every need across multiple genres. Peter exhibits amazing versatility and experience, and it's a no-brainer to hire him for any of your upcoming projects.

    Pete is one of the most hardworking musicians I know. On top of being wildly versatile and proficient on both electric and upright bass, he is also distinctly organised, timely, and he possesses the elusive ability to fill the roles of team player, eloquent ambassador, and section leader. He is a multifaceted asset to any lineup!

    Peter did writing and tracking for two songs for our band Anaria's new album "Exile" (Symphonic Metal). He wrote parts that blended perfectly with the songs and executed them with technical and musical perfection. He demonstrated a strong commitment to the song's vision and in addition wrote a bass solo. Peter was very communicable, extremely kind and executed his job with the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend him for your upcoming project.

    Peter is a phenomenal musician and it shows in every aspect of his playing and professionalism. Throughout the years I have always been able to depend on Pete for high quality bass tracking, video shots, and general counsel whenever I have needed his talents. He is very hard working, accessible, flexible, and a true pro. The icing on the cake is the unique and fun personality he adds to every recording he does. 10/10 would recommend for any genre/style.

    Pete is a brilliant bassist and musician, and an extremely professional person to work with. He excels in many styles, genres, and techniques, and is a perfectionist about every detail and aspect of the music he works on. Upright or electric, you’d be hard pressed to find a better guy to work with!
