Peter was born on March 28th in Gouda, the Netherlands. He grew up in and around The Hague.
As a child, he visited the local Jazz clubs with his parents, which he hated at first, but learned to appreciate over the years. At a young age he started out on the piano but after a while when his older brother gave him his first real guitar a new love was born!
Peter works under his own name as musician, teacher and producer. For his debut solo album “Human Ways” he recorded with Dutch blues greats Robbert Fossen, Little Boogie boy, Hammie van Hall, Peter van Zon, Dihl Bennink and the legendary Chicago blues singer Tail Dragger, with whom he also shared many times the stage at blues clubs in the “windy city” Chicago USA!
In 2010 he launched his own blues & roots record & production label "Blueshine Records" where you can find albums of Ted Gerrits, Little Boogie Boy, Robbert Fossen, Big Wil & the Bluesmen, John Frick, Nicko Christiansen, Levee Dwellers, Riverside jr. etc Check it out at www.blueshinerecords.com
Now a days Peter combined forces with allround bluesman Robbert Fossen.
Together they formed the Fossen & Struijk band with Eduard Nijenhuis on drums and Jan Markus on bass. Their first album “Clubbing” is released worldwide in 2013 and brought them to a lot of great venues. As duo Robbert and Peter were the winners of the Dutch Blues Challenge 2012, and finalists at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Peter was also nominated for “Best Dutch Blues Guitarist” 2013 and 2014!
On his new solo release “STRAIGHT BLUES” he got some very special friends like the one and only Liz Mandeville, Rockin' Johnny and Riverside jr. and more!
