Album Notes
A Singer/Songwriter born and raised in Liverpool, England. Pete Riley has been playing music ever since he can remember, He played his first gig in Liverpool doing Beatle covers at the age of 12, he then went on to play in numerous bands touring the British Isles, throughout the late 80s and early 90s. In late '96 his band Treehouse decided to try their luck in the USA, They were strongly advised against this and told it would be a costly mistake, but they went ahead regardless with the backing of their then manager Dan Priest and set off across the Atlantic.

After grinding it out in the venues of Los Angeles (Whiskey Ago Go, The Troubadour etc.) word spread about the band from Liverpool. Then, out of the blue, on a scheduled day off, they were invited to play an impromptu gig at Borders Book Store on Sunset Strip. It was from this gig that the boys amazingly landed themselves a record deal with Atlantic records.

Pete toured the USA through 1997 with Treehouse who went on to release their debut album "Nobody's Monkey" to critical acclaim. They continued touring America until 2000 opening for many major US artistes (too many to mention!) Sadly, at the end of 2001 Treehouse split up and went their separate ways after one last final tour opening for The Cranberries in the UK.

Pete then embarked on a solo career touring solo acoustic in the UK and Ireland. On release of his first solo album "After The Parade" Pete was invited back over to the USA to open for the American, multi -platinum selling artist Edwin McCain whom he had struck up a solid friendship with during his previous stints in the US. After opening for a couple of months he was asked by Edwin to join his band as a permanent member.

Pete went on to forge a writing partnership with Edwin McCain and co-wrote three successful albums as well as the single release “Say Anything” which was co-written by Pete with Edwin and Maia Sharp.

Since then Pete has been writing/recording and producing with many different artistes worldwide. These include Edwin McCain, Narada Michael Walden, Maia Sharp, Angie Aparo, Kevin Kinney, Henry Priestman (The Christians), Deadmono and most recently Amy Wadge.

Throughout the last few years there has also been numerous TV appearances in the USA (VH1, CBS Good Morning America) and more recently on BBC 1 in the UK (The Politics Show) Pete's songs also featured in the Warner Bros TV drama "Jack and Bobby" and the internationally released 2010 Miley Cyrus Disney Movie "The Last Song".

Over the last two years Pete has also been touring acoustically in the UK with Henry Priestman and has co-written 2 tracks with Henry for his new album due for release in 2011 on Universal Records.

Pete's most recent project is a duo collaboration with singer/songwriter Amy Wadge who, originally from Bristol, is now based out of Cardiff. After playing a bunch of shows and writing together they soon realised there was a special chemistry between them both and this led to the decision to record an Amy Wadge/Pete Riley duo album and followed by a UK tour.
