Kevin Peek

Kevin was born and brought up in Adelaide, Australia. He left for England in 1965 and basically remained domiciled in London until 1982 when he returned to Australia. He studied music in from the age of seven -his first studies being in the full range of orchestral percussion instruments plus jazz drumming, vibraphone and general music theory. Studies on guitar commenced when he was twelve and, for a while did this in tandem with continuing studies in percussion. By the age of fifteen his love of the guitar had completely taken over and Kevin Peek ceased any further work on percussion from that time on. After leaving school he worked in Adelaide for a few years playing guitar in various rock and jazz bands until departing for England.

During his entire time in England, Kevin worked as a self-employed professional musician - mainly as a recording "session" musician - but also undertook concert tours from time to time. In the course of such work he performed at live concerts, on radio broadcasts, on television broadcasts and on commercial recordings with many internationally known orchestras, instrumentalists, groups and singers - as well as recording, broadcasting and performing in concert in his own right.

Artists he's recorded with include: Cliff Richard, Olivia Newton-John, John Williams, The New Seekers, Lulu, Cilla Black, Chris Rea, Elton John, Manfred Mann, Peter Skellern, Shirley Bassey, Mary Hopkins, Rick Wakeman, Alan Parsons Project, Jeff Wayne, Roger Daltry, Mel Torme, The Shadows, Hank Harvin, Neil Diamond, Val Doonican and many, many others - as well as orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Kevin is currently active within the field of music composition, recording and production for film and television and is constantly expanding the list of works completed in those media.
