Drums anyone? I know, I know, everyone and their mother is a drummer, but if you really want great sounding studio drums, performed the way you want, I'm your man! I'm professionally trained, w/ a degree from the IU School of Music (studied w/Kenny Aronoff) and have recorded/toured worldwide with the likes of Fiction Plane, Sting, and The Police.

I have recorded and/or played with artists like:
FICTION PLANE, MIKE DOUGHTY (Soul Coughing), STING, THE POLICE (reunion tour), SHARON CORR (The Corrs), ARI HEST, DECLAN O'ROURKE, NATE MENDEL (Foo Fighters), LAURA CRITCHLEY, MICHAEL MCDONALD, GE SMITH, CARRIE NEWCOMER, DAN PONCE (Straight No Chaser), THE CUTTERS, TOM DOBSON, DAVID MOORE, VERONICA ANTICO, JAMES MOODY, BOB DUROUGH, MATT BECK, CARLI SMITHSON, DREYA WEBER, THE DAUNTING, MATT DUBLIN, JAMES KATZ, ADAM RUBENSTEIN, JAMES MAURI, KRISTA DETOR, LYLE WORKMAN, AMY KUNEY, JOHN GALLAGHER JR., I BLAME COCO (ELIOT SUMNER), MICHAEL BRUNNOCK, NICK LLOYD (Taylor Swift ) and more...

    Pete is an incredible drummer and his work speaks for itself. His feel is great and the one of the best part about working with him is his willingness to explore and try different parts to make the track as great as it can be. Thanks Pete!

    I’ve been working with Pete for over 20 years. He is my number one session player, countless projects, countless styles. Fun to work with, great musical ideas, always has great arrangement contributions. I can’t say enough about this human being, drummer, Musician, collaborator. You will not regret choosing Pete to work with, no matter what project you are working on.
