Pete has been playing double bass since April 2013. He originally took up the instrument with the aim of playing with a classical orchestra and he joined the double bass section of the excellent EMG Symphony Orchestra later that year. Pete took lessons in classical playing with David Heyes, Michael Allnatt and Yuri Golubev and continued to play with the orchestra up until 2016 when he decided to concentrate instead on playing jazz. He has since gone on to play a number of duo gigs with excellent young jazz guitarist Kyle Norgate and with multi-instrumentalist Marius Rudnick. Pete uses the double bass extensively in his composing process and is currently writing music for his new band Trio 43 in which he will share double bass duties with cellist Lucy Welsman.
