WE’LL ALL IDENTIFY WITH THE SONGS – THIS IS WELLER WITHOUT A FUSE
Pete Christie is a singer-songwriter/acoustic guitarist who plays from the heart and sings from the soul - a must see for anyone who loves acoustic music.
"Intense, passionate vocals and a clear grasp of how to write a great song - mesmerising...."
Pete Christie has been compared to many acclaimed musicians from Martin Simpson to Paul Weller, and was recently described as being "a cross between Pete Townsend, Mark Knopfler and Richard Thompson, but with a great voice; though without the fame !!!"
Pete Christie has developed his own original powerful style of acoustic fingerstyle guitar technique. His songs are original and contemporised anglicana roots, with a mix of rock, folk and country. His individualistic fingerstyle guitar technique can coax anything from achingly beautiful simple, sparse, and haunting accompaniment, to an explosive, almost neo-flamenco rhythm. It's as if Pete "duets" with the guitar rather than just casually strumming it, and he has perfected the art of making it sound like there has to be more than one musician on stage.
Over his 40 years as a performing musician, Pete has been a guest with a diverse array of guitarists and musicians such as Nick Harper, Jeff Lang, Glenn Tillbrook, Ezio, Ruby Turner, Hugh Cornwell, Bob Brozman, Martin Harley, Matt Andersen, Ben Montague, Jackie Leven, Kieran Halpin, Steve Tilston, Rory Ellis, Dave Pegg, and frequently with Derrin Nauendorf.
Pete is based on the Isle of Purbeck in southern UK and is touring with his latest studio album 'Frank', which shows off his gift for tethering his romantic ruminations to memorable melodies and instrumental harmonies. The album has been called "refreshing", "honest", "wonderful", "natural", "versatile", "...heartfelt songs that recall McTell's glory days...", and "delivered by a master craftsman". "Frank is not background music. It's a wonderfully written book brought to life by sounds". "Waiting in the Wings" is Pete's most famous song; and according to Minor 7th in the USA, "it is reminiscent of the off-the-wall stuff of Brian Wilson and Sir Paul as produced by Sir George Martin."
Pete Christie is passionate about his handmade guitars and the quality of sound he is producing and proud to be a "Featured Artist" for Avalon Guitars.
