New Album – the songwriting is well under way

February 20th, 2011

Pete’s current album ‘Frank’, which received favourable and 4star reviews and interviews, was completed at the end of 2009 and launched early in 2010

The next album material is an evolution in Pete’s crafted fingerstyle guitar technique and his honest Anglicana song writing approach.

Living on The Isle of Purbeck affords Pete plenty of space to work out what the album will be about. The hardest decisions will be what to leave out as the songs just keep ‘landing on him’.

Pete is quoted as saying he wants the next able to be ‘simple’; however, if the occasion presents itself for a full-sized orchestra to be available, then don’t be surprised if it is included on one of the tracks,

Pete is dedicating much of this year to touring throughout the UK and Europe, offering his audience an opportunity to hear some of the new songs as they grow and naturally develop.

Tim Heywood’s Music Blog – Pete Christie Live @ The Thomas Tripp Christchurch

February 12th, 2011

After a fun Pete Christie music event at The Thomas Tripp, Tim Heywood, one of the hardest working Bournemouth ‘gigster’/ reviewer / Hope FM radio presenter / judge at DUMA / musician / had time to focus on his informative Local Music Scene blog.

(worth reading if you were at a gig, or especially, if you missed a gig)


Mr Christie wows the Tripp

After doing a bit of delivery running around, I land at the gig that I started with. Pete is on form mainly just playing his guitar unaccompanied by the normally ever-present loop pedal.

Even so he is entertaining not just with the songs, but the overall presence – looking around for people to pick on, yet always making himself the butt of the joke, throwing in stories and anecdotes to boot.

I won’t mention some of the outrageous items Pete’s done tonight – those that are also here will know what I’m referring to – however as ever he finishes with an increasingly extended Easy Come Easy Go, using the loop pedal to full multi-voice effect.

If one hasn’t had a chance to experience Mr Christie in one of these up close and personal gigs, please make a point of doing so real soon.

He is playing at Mr Kyps soon, and is totally able to fill that stage with sound and quips, however it is with the close, visible audience that I enjoy Pete the most.
