Born in Inglewood, California, Peter is a third generation musician. He started his thirst for music at the age of 8 when HB Barnum let him play a metal stool with a mallet on a recording session his mother was working. He was hooked! After that, anything that didn't move became a drum. And the funky beats of New Orleans are right down his alley!

Over the last 25 years he has been fortunate to work with many top artists such as Finis Tasby, Coco Montoya, Yolanda Adams, O.C. Smith, Greg Walker, Rockin’ Joe Huston, Elaine Gibbs, King Ernest, Frankie Lee, Johnny Dyer, the Shirelles, along with such jazz greats as Morgan Ames, John Pisano, Herb Jeffries and Barbara Morrison.
