Exmouth-based indie folk/country rock singer/songwriter Pete Falloon launched his debut album Reed In The River in 2016. He's supported Britpop legends Dodgy, and UK funk heroes The Blockheads as well as folk and acoustic acts like Ruarri Joseph, Harbottle & Jonas, Kelley Oliver, The Lake Poets and Pete Morton. He’s played at festivals locally (Exeter Respect Festival, Bradninch Music Festival, Exmouth Festival, Gemfest, Powderham Food Festival, Exeter Beats Music/Food and Drink Festival, Beer Village Festival, Paignton Regatta, Exeter Oxjam, Exeter Street Arts Festival) and Wood Festival in Oxfordshire. Pete was also nominated for 2017 Best Folk/Acoustic Act in the Radio Wigwam international Online Radio Awards from over 1200 acts. BBC Introducing In Devon said of his live session "Beautiful vocals, haunting, heartfelt lyrics and just exceptionally constructed songs...WOW!". The album has received great reviews and widespread radio play from the UK, USA, Netherlands and Canada:
"Beautiful folk pop" - Folk Radio UK
"absolutely stunning" - Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio.
"Serious folk-pop hit potential" - Americana UK.
"Lovely"..."Delicate and appealing folk-pop" - R2 Magazine
"A musical delight from start to finish..delightful..beautiful..superb..sublime..poetic" - Fatea Magazine
Chris Hawkins has given Lay Down In The Morning Light several plays on BBC Radio 6, saying of the track:
"As beautiful as they come.. proper craftsmanship songwriting.. Simon & Garfunkel meets the Byrds.. capturing daybreak quite perfectly".
"Absolutely gorgeous.. it's elegant, it's thoughtful, it's optimistic too"
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”.
