Album Notes
“Childhood Memories” is the new guitar driven, progressive, instrumental heavy rock album by Pete Laramee. The disc has Derek Sherinian along with members of Kurgan’s Bane, Sonus Umbra, Might Could, and Concrete Prophet.

Pete is very proud of this CD and hopes that everyone will love it!


Pete was born in Burlington, Vermont to a very non-musical family, but HAD to start playing guitar when he heard Van Halen for the first time. By the mid ‘80s, Pete became consumed by guitarists such as George Lynch, Steve Vai, Randy Rhoads, Greg Howe, David Gilmour, Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Steve Morse.

While in college, Pete’s musical interests expanded to jazz and fusion and he played in both a heavy metal cover band and the school jazz ensemble. Pete graduated in 1990 with a B.S. in Communications and a minor in music.

In 1994, Pete and his brother, Jeff relocated to Baltimore, Maryland and soon formed “Kurgan’s Bane.” The “Bane” is a progressive hard rock project in which he is still involved today. They recorded three CDs entitled “Search from Sea to Sea (1997),” "The Future Lies Broken (2000)," and "Comouflaged In Static (2005)."

In the summer of 2006 Pete picked up a 7 string guitar out of curiosity and fell in love. Over the next year he wrote exclusively with the 7 string and in January of 2008 he decided to record another instrumental CD. His first solo CD was entitled, "Alone But Not Lonely (2002)." Again he asked Jeff and Luis to record the drums and bass. Pete also asked a local, up-and-coming bass player named Michael Passen (Concrete Prophet) to help out on a few songs. In addition Pete was able to get Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Planet X, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol) to play a few keyboard solos on the project. Since all the music was inspired by people and events from his childhood Pete decided to call the disc “Childhood Memories.”

This CD is awesome. Pete has some great melodies on here. His tone is absolutely sick. I can't get enough of that low end beefy goodness.

This is a fine album, with a variety of tempos and unusual time signatures. Very melodic!
