My music combines strong beats, catchy melodies interlaced with inovative guitar licks. My lyrics are topical and the phrasing is related closely to the expression within the song. The style is usually rock based with pop melodies and sometimes funk and grunge.

Lyrics

Living down South

Written By: Peter Jesser

Living down south got the cool sea breeze in my nose
I got get a board catch a long line down to my toes
Got to take off early catch the rollers in time
Got to get some money for a cold case of beer
Got to get some loving gonna bring it back here

Living down south got an old friend in Goolwa
He’s so funny when he acts like he thinks he can fool you
He can fool you

Shuffles along with his eyes fixed down to the ground
He drinks a lot of beer but in life he won’t let you down
Got to get away for a moment in time
Got a lot of problems but he don’t have a care
Got a lot of talent but his temper can flare
