Performer's Website

Peter Bitenc grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he was gigging in local clubs not long after taking up the bass at age 15. Peter attended the New England Conservatory of Music where he studied with Steve Lacy, Cecil McBee, and Jerry Bergonzi and graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies in 2004. Peter moved to New York City in 2005 where is currently active in the Jazz, Rock and Bluegrass scenes. Peter has played on various albums such as Casey Dienel's "Wind Up Canary" and Heather & the Barbarians' "Tell Me Tonight." He is also a member of the Daniel Levin Quartet, Holus Bolus, The Dive Bar Dukes, Heather & the Barbarians, From Bacteria 2 Boys, Ben Brown & the Makeout Machines, 28God and Oh Liza Jane.

Peter's solo project is called Hunter Gatherer. He thinks of it as music for a movie that doesn't exist. Hunter Gatherer draws from Americana Rock, Country, Blues and Jazz with some instrumental interludes. Peter sings and plays bass or guitar with a rotating cast of collaborators including Carlo Costa on drums, Jonathan Goldberger or Hans Holzen on guitar and Elisabeth McFadden singing backup.
