Biography

The Pete Kilpatrick Supergroup

One of the greatest challenges for a band is creating a sound that is unique, yet still accessible to a broad spectrum of listeners. Since their formation in the fall of 2002, The Pete Kilpatrick Supergroup has accomplished just that. Incorporating both acoustic and electric guitar with a tight and tasteful rhythm section creates a multi-dimensional sound that instantly sets them apart from others. As a singer, Pete Kilpatrick demonstrates the rare ability to consistently deliver catchy melodies, along with sincere and colorful lyrics. In little over a year, the band has gained recognition by writing well-crafted songs and performing regularly throughout New England. In May of 2003 the group was chosen out of 800 entries to open for Sixpence None the Richer in the Mix 98.5 "Boston Idol" contest. The following month the band was voted best new act in the Portland Phoenix Best Music Poll. They've also had airtime on Mix 98.5 (Boston, MA), WCYY 94.3 (Portland, ME), and WCLZ 98.9,(Portland, ME). Opening slots for O.A.R, Gavin Degraw, and Pete Francis haven't hurt either. Selling in excess of 4,000 CD's independently, playing countless packed college shows, playing at the State Theater in Portland to a crowd of 1,400, it's clear that the Pete Kilpatrick Supergroup has a bright future ahead of them.
