BIO


Multi-intstrumentalist and singer/songwriter Peter Kingham was raised in the Central Valley of Northern California, where music was a big part of the family life.  In 1996 he moved to Seattle, where he played guitar with the folk/rock outfit Preston Mill, and then later served as the bass guitarist with Tijuana Taxi.  In 2003 he started fronting the three piece rock act The Cricks with his identical twin brother Andrew Kingham.  During this time he also played drums with Scatterbrain, now known as The Electric NoNo.  


Between 2007 and 2009 he lived in Denali Park AK, and played bluegrass with The Rock Creek Ramblers. After moving to back to California in 2010, he primarily focused on studio projects, solo work, and performing occasionally either as a duo with Andrew or with Sacramento jam/rockers MAU.  In 2014 he relocated to Grand Lake, Colorado, and focused primarily on solo studio projects and learning new instruments. As of June 2016 he is a permanent resident of the Bisbee, AZ area.


Solo recordings to date include a seven song EP, "The Time, the Work, and the Will," and two five song EP's--"At The Top of a Lung" and "Sole Works." In these projects he composed, arranged, performed, and in the case of the last two produced and engineered the music. Current working projects include a bluegrass record, a rock record, a collaboration with MAU, and a collaboration with Bisbee, AZ high-octane folk/bluegrass group, Derek Beitner and the Whiskey Lickers. His project studio is called Starr King Studio.
