Remote Pro Musician│Composer

5 Reviews

Wouldn't it be awesome to have someone care about your next musical endeavor just as much as you do? That's me! I'm a music producer and multi-instrumentalist based out of Asheville, NC. I have 20+ year's music and audio production experience, specializing in a variety of genres including Pop, Funk, Rock, Electronic, Alternative & Cinematic music.

I am an experienced live sound engineer, recording engineer, composer, and multi instrumentalist. Since 2002, I have worked as a session musician for various live productions and have been featured on many singles and full-length records. I have also worked as a freelance recording and live sound engineer for recording studios, houses of worship, and event centers across Western North Carolina. I began teaching higher education studies in contemporary drumming at Montreat College in Montreat, NC in 2011. I started my own successful social marketing agency in 2013, and continue to work as an in-demand audio engineer, music professional, and higher education instructor.

Since 2015, I served as Chief Audio Engineer at LifeWay's Ridgecrest Conference Center in Ridgecrest, NC. I won a number of awards for my work as chief audio engineer in providing excellent service, improving many pre-existing audio systems, and updating campus-wide audio networks. I also composed the first ever awards ceremony theme music for LifeWay's Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference in 2019.

I continue to compose and release original music for film, TV, gaming, and other forms of creative content. My works are most notable for blending together certain kinds of unique instrumentation and sound textures.

    Peter’s grasp of music and production are top-notch. An artistic composer with a beautiful aesthetic. He’s also a brilliant instructor; kind enough to work with our teenage drummer and effectively impart his knowledge and skill. Peter does everything, absolutely everything, thoroughly. He is a real pleasure to know and have our kids know.

    Peter was instrumental in making helping us prepare for our Spring Musical last year. We were having problems with our PA, had recently gotten a new audio console that he helped us get integrated into the system, and then helped us polish and tweak orchestra and actor EQ's and gain structure to set our students up for success. He is very easy to work with, really knows his stuff, and willing to teach what he knows. We're looking forward to working with Peter again this year for our 2023 Spring Musical.

    Peter was the reason my wife was able to actualize the dream of recording an EP. He not only opened the door, he made the right connections with other professionals, shepherded us through the myriad details of production, brought his sound engineering to the recording/mixing process, and even performed on the album. We could not have done it without him!
