Malcolm Petch released several self-produced albums in the early to mid 1980's which are no longer available (Escape, Stretched To The Limit, and Dreams, to name a few) and a live CD entitled Worship From The Valley with two friends in 1998 which is available on-line from different sources (just type "Malcolm Petch" into a search engine).


Feeling a bit camera shy


Bearing influences from such diverse sources as the Eagles, Supertramp, Bob Dylan, Larry Norman, Peter Gabriel, Phil Keaggy, Kerry Livgren and Kansas, Sting, and Randy Stonehill, Malcolm Petch's music addresses life from the inside out; it is as comfortable acknowledging the crappy days as it is celebrating the good ones.

After a brief stint as a solo singer/songwriter, Malcolm became part of an existing BC (Canada) duo named Robins and Strauss (which became, for a fleeting moment, Robins, Strauss, and Petch) before heading into 15 years of employment as a worship and music pastor at 3 successive Canadian churches. This role gave Malcolm ample opportunity to hone his stage skills, as he fronted a band regularly 2 or 3 times a month to crowds of 400 to 900 people.

In January of 2005 Malcolm left vocational ministry to begin a recording and video production company (Escape Artist Music and Motion Inc) where he now spends his time as a singer/songwriter, producer, and session player on a full-time basis.

Malcolm's wealth of experience both live and in the studio helps him be right at home on stage in front of 20 people or 2000 people. His honest lyrics and powerful melodies often leave listeners feeling more deeply in touch with their own life experience - and actually usually have the listeners singing along!
