Exmouth, Devon based multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Pete Falloon launched his debut album Reed In The River on 25 November, with three full performances of the album in Tunbridge Wells, London and Exeter, with a full live band. This follows support slots with Britpop band Dodgy, and UK funk heroes The Blockheads, and a live session with BBC Introducing In Devon. The album is now available to stream and download on digital channels (iTunes, Amazon, Tidal, Deezer, Spotify etc) and as a limited edition gatefold CD from his bandcamp site.
The first two singles from the new LP, Reasons, and the title track Reed In The River have received very positive reviews and widespread radio play from the UK, USA, Netherlands and Canada.
Similar to the self-styled Paisley Overground movement pioneered by bands such as Co-pilgrim and The Dreaming Spires, Pete's music draws a line through many of the classic folk/pop acts of the psychedelic era such as Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds and James Taylor, to modern greats such as R.E.M., The Stone Roses as well as taking in influence from more contemporary acts such as Canadian Americana band The Barr Brothers. On the subject of the influence of the spectacular, idyllic beauty of the West Country in his music, he says that “the music is definitely influenced by my love for the natural environment, and inspired by living in Devon - the moors, coast, countryside, rivers and skies here are something very special”.
Reed In The River was produced by Pete’s brother Matthew Falloon, mixed by Tim Wills (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds/The Cure) and mastered by Pete Maher (Patti Smith/Jack White). Reed In The River was recorded over three four-day sessions at the vintage-equipped, hit factory Vale Studios in Gloucestershire. The band included Pete Falloon on acoustic/electric guitars and mandolin, Matthew Falloon on bass/guitar/mandolin/wurlitzer and Paul Everest on drums/percussion.
