Pete Briley is an overrated upstart with ideas above his station.


With an entrenched fascination for anything that makes a noise, this southern multi-instrumentalist has a knack for combining weird and wonderful instruments, clever chords and unique songwriting techniques with undeniably interesting and engaging melody and thoughtful lyrics. 


Whilst he is probably best known for his role in The Outlaw Orchestra  (Banjo and Pedal Steel) and touring the country alongside the likes of The Darkness , Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons, Reef  and Kris Barras Band, Pete Briley's solo output is his playground. You can hear the broad spectrum of influences bleeding through into his songwriting, filtered through his own production and recording techniques and weaved with his distinctive, idiosyncratic way with words



Pete’s debut album is out now, which includes BBC Introducing Track of the Week and Best of 2023, ‘Elvis’, alongside the singles ’Rhonda’, ‘Right Place, Wrong Time’, ‘Sick and Tired’ and ‘Go To Bed’. 


The album is a smorgasbord of tracks featuring a collection of talented musicians including Dane Campbell (Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons), Jonny Moody, Ryan Smith (The Outlaw Orchestra) and Nebojsa Pavlo and has received really positive feedback.


“This is an album that will stay with you for a long time and is a glorious hidden gem. An album of substance that sits like a full banquet…This album will keep you fed musically for a long time”

- Backseat Mafia


“Pete is one hell of a songwriter and has produced something that feels wholly unique with this release. I can’t think of anything I’ve checked out recently that sounds like this, and that’s certainly a good thing.”

- Overtone Magazine


“A gorgeous blend of paces, styles and ambiences”

- New Noise Magazine


“Pete’s voice and his music are totally unique - I love it”

- BBC Introducing
