His early demos, which gained support from local BBC radio, caught the attention of a major UK radio group, who then tipped off a record label, which resulted in Pete signing his first recording contract. Pete’s debut album, recorded with award winning Irish producer Tommy McLaughlin (The Villagers), earned great reviews and the first single ‘Idols’ was featured in ‘Record of the Day’. The follow up, 'All These Things' was picked up by BBC Radio 2 by presenter Janice Long.
Pete and producer Pol Brennan of the band Clannad, co-wrote the title track for the movie 'Property of the State' which premiered at the Galway film Festival last year. American song plugger Gil Grand discovered Pete online and, impressed by the storytelling aspect of the lyrics, is now helping Pete write for established artists in the States.
More recently, Pete hooked up with the music company The Animal Farm who saw Pete perform at The Islington in London and were so impressed that they immediately asked to produce Pete’s next single, released this summer.
