Peter J. Wallner is a multi-instrumentalist composer and recording artist.


He graduated from the Berklee College of Music receiving a Bachelors of Professional Studies in Music Composition for Film, TV, and Video Games with cum laude honors in 2021. 

In 2005, Peter formed the band, Sheena, playing electric bass and programming drum machines and synthesizers.  In 2006, Sheena released Wah-ha Era, which was quickly noticed by Kevin Barnes (Of Montreal).  This led to a west coast tour in support of Of Montreal.

Peter has performed in over 15 bands and toured in three countries, with the most notable bands being Some Ember, Wax Idols, Heaven’s Club, and Whisper. His affinity for lightning bolt guitar straps has earned him the moniker, Peter Lightning, which he has been performing under for the last 10 years.
