Bassist of The Good Life in Bilbao studied economics and spent a short period of practice in London, but except for that stage has always lived in his city, which took the name of the movement called Donosti Sound, which also includes its group.

Pedro San Martin, who lived in the neighborhood of Amara, worked at a company Orio because, as the other members of the band, the music did not give to live. However, his dedication to the group was "full" and input "fundamental," says Lanzagorta, which also refers to bass as a person of musical tastes "very eclectic." Was "always very positive, motivated, warm and a music enthusiast," says keyboardist, who explains that San Martin took advantage of virtually every weekend to attend concerts and music festivals.

"Already we're seeing now in social networks, there is a pile after pile of people in Spain who knew him because he was always at every concert.

He was very sociable, he was always making relationships and having fun," he notes.
