Pete Clark started playing bass at the age of 16. Inspired by his father’s vast music collection, he spent his formative musical years learning bass lines by prog rock greats Chris Squire, Geddy Lee and Mike Rutherford. Along the way his love of bass has taken him on a musical journey through many musical genres including soul, funk, jazz and reggae.
He has been a professional musician since his mid-twenties and has performed with many cover/function bands including T-BASS where he met his singer/songwriter wife, Fran. They formed Body & Soul and have now worked together for many years. They set up their own label and have produced and released two solo albums for Fran, To Fly (2007) and Beautiful People (2013).
Throughout his music career he has been a member of original music bands and his experiences during that time have led to him becoming both a confident session musician and a skilled recording engineer and producer.
The highlight of his recording career so far is the 2018 release by producer Tony Lowe’s ESP Project entitled 22 Layers of Sunlight on which he played bass guitar on all tracks. The album featured Mark Brzezicki of Big Country on drums and Peter Coyle of The Lotus Eaters on vocals. Pete is currently recording bass guitar for the next ESP release.
