Pete Downes & Steve Littler

"Influences from Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck to John McLaughlin and Miles Davis can be detected in their often moody sonic soundscapes"
Jazziz

"This is an album of instrumental guitar music that meets somewhere between Robben Ford, Larry Carlton and Paul Kossoff. The arrangements are subtle and the album is very 'late nite' with slow grooves and wonderful guitar playing from the two."
David Clayton FAS Magazine

"If it is instrumental electric guitar music that you're into with a leaning to the style of Akkerman and Summers, then this is definitely for you. This is the most soothing and neck tingling music I have heard in a while. This is wonderful stuff and the title track is simply exquisite. Real music fans will love it."
Martin Hudson, Classic Rock Society

Pete and Steve have a long history. They met aged 11 in their home town of Chester (England) and were at the same High School in the 70’s where their mutual interest in music and guitar developed.

Both were inspired by the rock, jazz rock and blues rock movements of the late 60’s and early 70’s including Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Paul Kossoff (Free), Jan Akkerman (Focus), John McLaughlin (Mahavishnu Orchestra) and Jeff Beck.

Django Reinhardt has a special significance for them. They also listened to Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue' for the first time together and jammed along to the tracks. A life changing event!

Steve plays deep from the heart, and puts all his soul into each note he plays. Pete’s inspiration comes from his interest in jazz and classical music as well as rock and shows with smoothly played runs and arpeggios colouring his playing.

They have remained in touch over the years and this project is the result of their deep friendship and mutual respect for each others playing.

Pete & Steve have also performed together with another CD Baby artist: John Tallon Jones.
