Welcome to the home page of guitarist, Peter Bodley. Based in the Kootenays of British Columbia, I write works for the classical guitar and perform locally as a soloist and with other artists. My original works are meaningful, evoke a sense of harmony and beauty; notes flow naturally off the strings. These works are a result of a life long passion for the guitar and its wide range of musical possibilities. I have played for well over thirty years, drawing upon highly evolved technique. I incorporate Spanish, flamenco, folk and jazz elements in my compositions and have developed top notch improvisation skills for live shows.
I have released three CDs to date. The most recent is a parent-friendly compilation created for children and is of a traditional nature. Please enter the site and review the information and the audio samples provided for you. You will have the opportunity to contact me for bookings or to purchase CDs and MP3s if you wish.
My music has been sold worldwide and can be downloaded from the internet from your favourite site such as ITunes, Spotify, Deezer, Yandex, Google or CD Baby to name a few. My tunes are also available for sync licensing for your video project via Rumblefish or YouTube music sales. Pieces from the CD "Kootenay Serenade" are often licensed.
If you would like to commision a work or purchase music for television or movies, I would be pleased to provide this service at reasonable rates. I have many unreleased works suitable for this purpose. Also, it has been a while since I have compiled a CD and should have one coming out soon. Stay tuned and thanks for visiting. Your interest and support is what keeps me strumming along.
