Peter Walker was a founding of Bakery, an Australian progressive hard rock band that later featured vocalist Barry Leef and bassist Jackie Orszaczky.
After 6 years on the road, Peter migrated into the studio world via Charles Fisher and Trafalgar Studios where he began engineering albums, often with people he knew from his touring days. Much of that work was un-credited as his specialty was replacing existing parts (or beefing them up) for albums of well-known bands including 'Eagle Rock' (Daddy Cool), 'Hey True Blue' (John Williamson) and 'Khe Sahn' (Cold Chisel).
Other local acts Peter has engineered/produced include, Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Hoodoo Gurus, John Williamson, Air Supply, Tommy Emmanuel and Buffalo. He also did recordings for touring international acts like Elvis Costello, David Bowie, Police and Duran Duran while they were in Sydney.
