With a degree in Audio Mastering from Berklee College of Music, Pete Trappen got his first beat-up acoustic guitar at the age of 8 and learned to play it through sheer will. He started his first band at age 12 and has now been a professional UK musician for 40+ years. Nominated for a Grammy in 2001, Pete's vocal style is similar to Jimmy Buffett jamming with Jim Morrison in a Bluesy backwoods roadhouse as he finger-picks Acoustic & Electric guitars with a generous dose of Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler.
All parts are played by Pete Trappen using a Roland XP50 vintage synthesizer and an Akai MPC midi controller for rhythm tracks, keyboards, violins, flutes etc. Guitars are: Eric Clapton Signature Martin 0028 Acoustic and Heritage 535 & Fender Stratocaster Electric guitars and Hohner Harmonicas.
A Beatles style pop song with rich harmonies and a soaring melody complete with a Rickenbacker 12-string, jingle-jangle tambourine-man. Very hummable and true to the 60's top-of-the-pops 2 minutes & 15 seconds worth of rock & roll. Would work well with any British Invasion track list. Male Vocals, Soundalikes, Beatles
A Trop-Rock folksy cruise through the choppy waters of a break-up or parting of ways. Complete with steel drums and sailing imagery, this beautiful melody will help you feel at ease with the world. So, grab a Mojito and put on your flip-flops, it's going to be a pleasant trip to the islands. Male Vocals, Soundalikes, Jimmy Buffett
Folk-rock song in the Bob Dylan style. Spoken word, clever lyrics with a harmonica and chiming guitar arpeggios. A song about a girl who protests too much, talking behind your back, above it all. Lovely violin/cellos weave a sweeping codetta at the end. Male Vocals, Soundalikes, Bob Dylan
A rockin tune about a foxy female Eco-Warrior who always gets her way. Very cool with sitars, 12 string Rickenbackers and backwards loops. Very 60s rock-pop song in a WHO / Beatles style. An energetic composition with a powerful message and positive uplifting lyrics. Male Vocals, Soundalikes, Beatles
A study in the Santana vein with a Latin feel and smooth guitar lines. Sultry rhythms intertwined with visions of hopeless love. Great hooks and easily remembered, this tune would fit in well with any jazzy latin or blues track list. A Voodoo Woman cast a spell on me! Male Vocals, Soundalikes, Santana
A heartbreaking story about how things couldn't get any worse when the subject of the song meets a Voodoo Witch with unexpected consequences. A bluesy rock setting with blistering guitar licks and a story line complete with barking dogs from hell. Male Vocals, Rock, Roots Rock
