Scottish singer-songwriter, Pete MacLeod is known for crafting hard-edged yet sensitive, melodic guitar-based rock songs. He lives his influences and father’s record collection with every stroke of his plectrum as Buddy Holly, The Beatles, John Lennon and The Rolling Stones come to life.
This trend continues on his new album ‘Walk To The Light’, which is released on the 28 September 2018. With production assistance from Youth (who also plays bass on several songs), it features contributions from Simon Tong (The Verve, Gorillaz, The Magnetic North), James McCartney (Son of Paul), as well as Andy Bell (Ride, Oasis, Beady Eye) who features on elegiac album closer ‘Saudade’.
Describing the lyrical content of the record, MacLeod reflects:
I went a little deeper and darker with some of the songs, although the emphasis is more a spiritual one in regard to the overall feel. My belief is that no matter what you are going through it’s important not to doubt yourself and others but instead ‘walk to the light’.
Pete is currently on tour and plays Bar Yellow in Cumbernauld on Saturday 22 September. Remaining dates for the rest of the year are:
