Pete's taste in music is eclectic but a constant favourite has always been progressive rock. He spent his formative musical years learning to play bass lines by prog rock greats Chris Squire, Geddy Lee and Mike Rutherford. His love for prog rock has led to his current involvement with tribute bands “What The Floyd” and “Progfathers”. He has played with many original bands since the early 1980's and is currently recording and performing with "ESP 2.0" - producer Tony Lowe's prog rock project, featuring Mark Brzezicki (Big Country) and Peter Coyle (The Lotus Eaters). He has been a professional musician since 1989 and has performed with numerous cover/function bands including T-BASS where he met his singer/songwriter wife, Fran. Together they set up their own label and have produced and released two solo albums for Fran, “To Fly” (2007) and “Beautiful People” (2013).
