Bio

A prolific songwriter, Pete delivers his music with undeniable conviction and passion. Honest and real his style defines versatility. He first took to the stage with his guitar at the age of 14, and his music has evolved in tune with his life ever since on the college bar, small club and coffee house circuit, and at numerous festivals. Playing either solo or with a band, Pete’s music and performances are of a rare caliber, and of a depth beyond simply sight and sound – a true experience.

Working the long hard hours and roads of music is nothing new to Pete, self-confessed as having the best ‘job’ in the world. Upon finishing school he studied Jazz, then flew to North America and spent months living on the back roads of Blues, before returning to Australia with his songbook, and vision for recording his works.
After approximately 500 hours in the studio over four years recording his debut album, “Chasing heaven catching hell”, Pete was set to embark on a 4 month promotional tour around the world. A week before departing, he was brutally assaulted by a stranger, which left him on the very edge of death. Ten months of rehabilitation followed, in which he had to learn to play guitar all over again, and deal with permanently loosing 80% of his hearing in one ear.
As soon as he was able, he got on a plane, picking up where fate had stalled his progress, and completed his world tour as planned nearly a year later. Over 100 shows upon the tour brought many new fans to his music, thousands of sales of his tour E.P, and resulted in him signing a promotional deal with a U.S.A record label affiliated with Jack Johnson.
Following his self-funded E.P, Album and World tour, touring across Australia twice since returning, and recording further works, Pete's now going back out there to do it all again, self-funded yet again.. and pushing the envelope, in the only way he knows how. His fan-base continues to grow with every show he plays, and lives continue to be touched by his music. This journey has no end.
