Legendary Pete Miller is in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame . . .

right next to The Beatles!

(His stage name in the 60's was "Big Boy Pete")

Pete is also a producer and engineer for other artists:

Built by a musician for musicians, Pete Miller's self- designed multitrack recording studio was tucked away behind yuppie boutiques and restaurants on San Francisco's chic Union Street for 25 years. A quiet courtyard led to the studio entrance where he offered a complete production service for record manufacturing and promotion. Pete is proud to have played a part in the production and success of dozens of albums and singles and countless demo recordings.
