Treading Water with Pete Allan

So I met this guy Pete a couple of months back playing MC at a sweet, community live music event.. He struck me as humble yet hilarious, chilled yet profound and so passionate about his support for local, live, original music. This was before I knew him as Pete the groove master who had just released one of my fave new tunes.

Sunny Coast dweller Pete has hit the daily grind on the head with 'Treading Water' and euphemisms for everyday stuff can be found in his new EP 'Ripples'. The culture entwined with Pete's music is simplistic integrity with a firm message of love and respect for humanity. Inspiring, uplifting, warm and chilled the messages reflect his respect for fellow humans and his beliefs that we all share this experience of life together. 'Ripples' is easy listening, sit under a pandanus with a pineapple juice filled coconut complete with Hawaiian swizzle stick goodness and with two tunes in the Triple J Unearthed charts, you know you want some of this sweet, rootsy rock.

Come and check Pete out with a bunch of other local, rockin', original live music this Sunday at Peregian Originals!

Getting Creative on the 'Soul Coast'

What does it mean to be a creative artist? Arts ventures and organisations on the Sunshine Coast are currently growing exponentially. The shift in how our community see and value arts and the role it has to play in our lives is ever snowballing. The creative arts inject fundamental vitality into all aspects of our growing community. In each individuals' creative expression we all gain something. Gathering within this NFP collective, the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance, are artists, educators, innovators and philanthropists alike. Our fascination as humans in everything around us, informs everything we do. Fortunately for us living here on the Sunshine Coast we have this extremely pro active collective whom collaborate regularly to keep the arts alive and thriving, forming a recognisable identity for our generation and those to come.

The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance have done it again with their #juiceandjam breakfast this morning. Encouraging creative enterprise, innovative d…

Filling the Girl Punk Voiid

Walking into the Foundry early, I was pretty keen on the night's line-up. There was a crowd starting to mill around the stage and a bit of a buzz to be honest, tonight’s headliners are the irrepressible Bleeding Knees Club with The Pinheadz & Voiid supporting…this was not the first I’d heard of the ostentatious girl group.  In fact I was looking forward to seeing some girlshreik, it had been a while since I’d heard an all girl punk band that impressed me to be honest.

The girls were all so comfortable in their skin on stage, an electric presence that flaunted true punk ego. They sauntered onto stage, and with an almighty bass line they launched straight into it as did the crowd. Voiid certainly have built a local following and everyone was writhing & cascading all over the joint with enthusiasm. Obvious influences came shining through, I decided I needed to have a little chat with the girls to spread the word on the hot asfuck sounds hitting my earholes…
So you got together…

Journey through Desire Path.

Talking with Yeo, I felt like I was chatting to a friend, he is humble and honest. We spoke about the themes intertwined in 'Desire Path' and how each collaboration came about.
Your last album was really playful both in the music and the lyrics.  Listening to your new album ‘Desire Path’, I felt like a it’s journey through different relationships. 
Yeah, I think even if the lyrics get really literal, music to me is based on emotion and emotions are kind of nothing without a relationship to give it context I feel.
Well when you think about, it relationships rule our lives, whether it be a friendship, family or a work colleague they are always an influence; but I feel quite a few of these tracks are about love relationships?
There’s a few on this album, and I haven’t done this for a while. The last album had a couple, but I feel like I got more honest on this one. 
I agree, you have a great way with words and that draws me in to your music. I take an expression of human emotions and …
