Aug. 26 - Recording Projects

When the world shut down Peter was lucky to be at his home in Dominican Republic. He has a nice project studio there with ability to record high quality guitar and vocal overdubs, using Protools along with some holy grail outboard gear.

Peter is using the long and welcome siesta to finish 14 original songs that were recorded in New Orleans and St Amant, Louisiana. Also, he's finishing a dozen instrumental guitar tracks recorded in Santo Domingo with co-producer and drummer Guy Frometa (Mike Stern, Juan Luis Guerra).

With his project studio up and running, Peter is doing guitar parts for other artists and composing, recording and producing guitar-driven music for television and film. Send a message if you need something.
