Pete Bill

About Me

Originally from Stoke On Trent and now based in London, Pete Bill started to play the drums at the young age of seven. Now a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music, Pete Bill is a professional session drummer and producer with experience working nationally and internationally. This includes touring across Asia with an orchestra for Princess Cruises, performing with a pop band for 5* Hotels in the Middle East, musical theatre, and session work with pop artists.

Now under the mentorship of internationally acclaimed drummer Kaz Rodriguez, Pete has had the pleasure of working alongside Kaz as his drum tech and engineer. This has meant Pete not only has worked in multiple sessions for Kaz’s clinics but has also recorded and produced some of his videos which have been featured on the likes of Zildjian, Tama, and Vic Firths main social media platforms. Since working with Kaz, Pete Bill has also been backline and drum tech in live shows for artists Sinead Harnett, Jacob Banks and most recently The Disciples. Pete has also had the privilege to be a part of Kaz Rodriguez’s latest album Volume 4 as co engineer. Kaz Rodriguez is a major influence on Pete’s playing as well as being a huge inspiration to himself and countless other drummers across the world.

Pete Bill's credits include: Mo Jamil (winner of The Voice 2017), KOVIC, The New Victorians, EVARIS, Final Conflict, FTT, Maureen Nolan, & JOIZE.

”I’ve been mentoring Pete for some years now, seeing him grow is a joy to watch, I look forward to seeing more of his journey”

Mike Sturgis (A-ha, Asia, Wishbone Ash, Bob James)

"As an multi-instrumentalist and composer, Pete Bill has a formidable skill set, especially for someone of such a young age. His drumming is really musical and versatile - he is definitely one to watch for the future”

Elliot Henshaw (Shirley Bassey, John Lord & Roger Glover [Deep Purple], Lion King)

"I have seen Pete Bill perform and I would say that he has all the attributes necessary to become a much sought after player - musicality, technique, conscientiousness and confidence."

Tony Bourke (We Will Rock You, Atomic Kitten)

"I met Pete back in May as he came to sit in We Will Rock You. Was struck by his great personality straight away. Let him loose on my kit after. Wooow some great stuff, feel, chops! And musical ideas. Plus some great stick throws! Having got to know him since he has come across as a very young talent that needs to be snapped up! He is also a great guitar player too. I'm certain he will go very far in this music industry. He has a very old head on young shoulders."
