Last week something very exciting happened. My new single ‘The Hypnotist’ was featured on one of my favourite music blogs from the States, Indie Shuffle. I’m so happy to have the song featured amongst so many amazing artists I admire and respect, and I couldn’t help sharing ths with you.

The single features piano and backing vocals by very special guest, the Swell Season’s Markéta Irglová, as well as additional production by Mio Sturla Thorisson (Greenhouse Studios) who also mixed and mastered the song.

And secondly, in April this year I’ll be releasing a brand new single. It’s for a song called ‘The Hypnotist’ and I believe it’s the best song I’ve ever recorded. I’ve had the fortune of working with some amazingly talented people on this track, and I can’t wait to share the details and sounds with you in a few short months.
Right now it’s back to nursing my mid-afternoon coffee and planning what I hope to be the most creative year of my life.
Ah Berlin. A city as creative, effervescent and inspiring as the many artists she shelters. I always love coming back, and filling up the creative tank. It was nice to see some dry snow, and watch little kids on sleighs plough down the hills of Mauer Park at breakneck speed.
Last weekend I performed at a terrific independent festival called ‘Musique Maudite’ which was held last Saturday at a gallery space in Moabit. The whole point of this festival is to culturally activate an area of Berlin that hasn’t received as much creative attention as other more popular areas such as Kreuzberg, Neukolln, Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. It was a great line-up featuring a bunch of local songwriters, and others from Japan, France, Ireland and Bulgaria.
I also had the chance to meet up with one of my partners in creative crime, the endlessly talented Claudio Donzelli (who performs in stunning bands like Athebustop and The Mighty Oaks). We hung out and took photos, I liked how this one turned out.
Now I’m back in Bournemouth where I’m pretty excited about playing my first show in a week or so at a small place called ‘Buffalo Bar’. If you happen to live there check out the link below and come along. I’m always happy to meet new friends
That’s all for now, some exciting news about a next release coming in the next few weeks. Can’t wait to share it with you.
Folk on, Pete
