Marshland Pete is an accomplished guitarist and vocalist. Growing up next to the marshland of England (He also grew up next to a golf course but Golf Course Pete doesn't have the same ring to it). He grew his musical understanding from the family 45s, favouring those Rock and Blues artists who could launch into deeply moving guitar solos (Jeff Beck, Cream, Roy Buchanan, Robin Trower, Jimi Hendrix, Free, Led Zeppelin) as well as musicians who embraced the unconventional. In early bands, Petey would take a lead in writing new songs and developing long solos (His other band mates were less impressed with the length of these solos).
Petey left the peaceful idyllic landscapes of the East Anglian marshland to travel the long dusty lonesome road (Well alright he took the train, which was quite comfortable) to London. He found a new home in London. Much of his music has been influenced by the London 1960's music scene and living amongst the landmarks of that era has been inspiring. These days, Petey is playing music further afield and has performed in numerous places throughout the UK.
Whilst Petey has done session work at prestigious recordings studios such as Abbey Road Studios, he records mostly from his own home studio, Chime Tone Studio. In addition to performing on the records (often playing or programming all of the instruments), he mixes, masters and even does the artwork for his songs.

Always Be A Part Of Me
Always Be A Part Of MeAlways Be a Part of Me is a raw emotional acoustic number about keeping those close to us in our hearts, even when we lose them. The artist and songwriter Marshland Pete has himself lost various people in his life, including family members. One of the bigger influences on the song, though not the only influence, was when he lost his mother to cancer whilst he was a teenager. The song reflects the belief that even if someone is no longer there in person, they are still there as part of your memories and soul. Inspired by early Blues and Folk as well as modern Americana music. It’s a raw Acoustic guitar track with minimal accompaniment.
Leaves On The Track
Leaves On The TrackLeaves on the Track is a tale of a man travelling to meet his long-distance lover. He goes on a journey both physically and emotionally. The song is inspired by late 60's/early 70's psychedelia and more modern electronic sampling artists.
Wishing WellWishing Well is the latest dirty driven Blues guitar track from Marshland Pete. Deep down in the bottom of the well lies the heart of a broken man...
