Steve Peterson

Professional Bassist



I am an experienced professional bass player living near Nashville, Tennessee. I have worked for many fine artists over the years, including jazz great Art Van Damme, the original Ink Spots, "Dynasty" and "Grey’s Anatomy" star Diahann Carroll, RFD-TV regular and Lower Broadway artist Frank James, as well as 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee, Clyde Stubblefield. I play Lakland basses and a few older Fenders.


I use Fender, Crown, Eden, and Ashdown amplifiers for live shows, and Avalon, DBX, and FMR products for recording. I am ready for Broadway shows, private parties, short tours, songwriter showcases, as well jingles, demos, and master sessions.
