RJM_0027Meet Peter Young

Like bricks and mortar Peter Young has built his career as a drummer and producer one song at a time. On stage or in the studio, Peter brings his broad-based background into the mix.

Peter was born in the mid 60s in Saratoga Springs, New York. He grew up in a musical family and his exposure to a variety of musical styles helped develop his skills. He took to the drums at age 7, and then throughout his school days he studied privately and performed in diverse settings, including drum & bugle corps, summer stock theater, and live gigs with country, pop, jazz and rock groups.

“Being able to be part of different musical situations when growing up really helped me understand the dynamics within different styles of music. That’s been a great asset when working and producing various songwriters and artist.”

By the mid 80s Peter began working professionally, and, influenced by many of the top studio drummers in NYC and LA, he headed to New York to study privately at the legendary drum school, the ”Drummers Collective,” where his teachers include jazz-funk drummer Mike Clark (Herbie Hancock) and New Orleans great Ricky Sebastian.

In 1991 Peter relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, and toured with Atlantic Recording artist Robin Lee (“Black Velvet”), opening shows for nearly every major country artist of the time. After this successful introduction, Peter gigged with Ricky Van Shelton, Bob Woodruff, Chely Wright , Brett James and Walter Egan among many other gigs through the 90’s. Peter joined the Loretta Lynn tour in 1997 and toured with her for 5 years, always returning to Nashville between tours to hustle up showcase gigs and recording sessions.

In 2001, Peter decided to get off the road, help raise his two sons, and focus on session work and producing. Peter launched an internet drum track business “ Nashville Drum Tracks”. Even as his local clientele grew, the response to online ads skyrocketed, prompting Peter to quickly add full custom audio production to his services for songwriters and artists around the world. It was during this time that Ultra Audio Productions was born.

“Collaborating with clients via the internet has become the norm,” says Peter. “Working with talented people from all over the world to bring their songs to a new level, gives me a satisfaction that I never thought would be possible. “The music is just a mouse-click away and I can work with someone in London or Los Angeles as easy as I can with someone right here in Nashville.”

Now, over two decades after arriving in Nashville, the building blocks of Peter’s success have become a new home – the Nashville home for songwriters, artists and producers around the world. With Peter’s easy manner and diversity of experiences, he offers a uniquely personal and cost-effective opportunity to collaborate with the creative culture of Music City.
