This Monaghan-born, Kerry-based alternative performing singer/songwriter has had his busiest year yet in 2003. Pete's debut album "one of these kids" lifted him from the trenches into the national consciousness. Critics and the public overwhelmingly enthused over his humble offering which was released through his own independent company Tonal Music Ltd. Participation on last years Witness Rising tour and the festival itself in Fairyhouse upped Pete's profile immensely, eventually creating a wider listening audience for his left-of-center style.

Pete has only done a handful of Dublin gigs recently, as he has been busy working on his rural shows and network, taking it to the heart as it were. A positive step into the unknown.

Pete's emphasis within music has always been to create and perform honestly and naturally so each show can be as organic as the song itself when originally penned. One can expect some self-effacing stories as well as guest appearances from some of the most evolved session musicians based in Ireland as well as fellow troubadours.
