Peter Golikov (aka Peter G) is a keyboardist/producer hailing from Brisbane, Australia. He first began his musical journey in 1986, studying classical piano for 10 years, and a natural progression then led him towards jazz and funk music , and later to hand percussion and drums in 1995. Since then he has continued to follow his love of funk and soul music, adapting his “Golden Sound” live ensemble, to resemble the classic 1970’s feel good funk sound, with swirling synths, driving rhythms and sizzling horns, creating a palette of sonic goodness. During the last 15 years Peter has performed and collaborated with countless artists and producers from Australia and abroad, including supports for Moloko, Derrick Carter, Reggie Watts, Bamboos, Crazy P, Norman J. Peter also had the opportunity to perform drums and percussion with Nouvelle Vague on their Australian tour in 2008. After 2 vinyl releases through “Gallery” in 2003, with his previous band Pty Ltd, Peter traveled to America where he had the opportunity to perform in New York, Chicago and L.A, plus several weeks recording and performing in Kathmandu, Nepal. During his career with Pty Ltd, he performed at countless Australian music festivals including; Good Vibrations, Falls Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Parklife, Sydney Festival, Island Vibe, Greenfest & Playground Weekender. A career highlight was performing on the same stage as the late James Brown, at Good Vibrations in 2006. Peter decided he wanted to focus on his solo keyboard work, and has since appeared on countless Australian releases and compilations with his own compilations. Collaborations with New York’s Reggie Watts also secured Triple J radio interest, with the song, “See you again”, recently being selected on Triple J Unearthed as a featured song.
