Biography

Pete Butler is an accomplished singer pianist, equally adept in performing a variety of styles, from jazz standards to current chart material. Having spent many years cultivating his keyboard and vocal skills he has crafted a versatile style that blends traditional style with contemporary substance to create sound that transcends genres.

Pete's earliest musical passions and influences were routed firmly in pop and rock. Listening to the Beatles and indie rock eventually morphed into funkier territories with Stevie Wonder largely to blame for his discovery of jazz, soul and blues. Opportunities to learn jazz by playing regularly in a Cheltenham based jazz trio performing the standards, opened up a new world of playing styles, sounds and influences that are still being cultivated today. Although this appreciation for jazz has moved him in different directions he is still more than happy to 'rock-out' and blast out the pop classics at every opportunity!

Pete currently holds solo piano bar residencies at the Subtone nightclub in Cheltenham and Seventeen Black in Cirencester. Check out the Links page for links to these venue websites.
