Sometimes you can just tell the artists that grew up on the coast. Their music and their lyrics all seem to reflect the smoothness of the sea breeze or the relaxed pace of coastal life, transporting the listener from wherever they are to wherever they would rather be. This capability is the heart and soul of Pete Allan’s latest EP ‘Ripples’. A native of the Sunshine Coast hub of Noosa, Pete’s blend of effortlessly cool vocals and hypnotic, swaying rhythms are the musical epitome of the paradise he grew up in.
Following on from early taster and widespread radio gem ‘Treading Water’, new single ‘Lost and Found’ highlights Pete’s gifted trademark storytelling while set to a tune fit for every upcoming Spring and Summer playlist. ‘Ripples’ is a leap forward in full band sonics without adding any unnecessary weight to Pete’s feather-light musical agility.Perfectly described by Sea FM for his “smooth Sunday arvo feel”, Pete’s music matches his lifestyle – a blend of coastal warmth and down-to-earth honesty. Capturing one of the most beloved aspects of Australian life, Pete Allan creates music that represents the vastness of coastal culture on a continent girt by sea. ‘Ripples’ will see Pete Allan continue to win over new fans all around the country.
