’Molinari’s voice and haunting melodies left me feeling that the musical void in the British music scene will most definitely be filled. He can follow in the footsteps of Dylan and Guthrie’ – NME
One of Britain’s finest country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll singers, Pete Molinari grew up in Chatham where he was discovered and mentored by Billy Childish. During an 18 month stint in the US, Pete honed his style in New York's bars and coffee houses retreading the footsteps of his heroes Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and Dylan.
Those in the know know and without the fanfare of hype, Pete can count among his fans – amongst others - Bruce Springsteen, Ray Davies, Paul Weller, Jools Holland, Bob Dylan, Richard Hawley, The Black Keys and Elvis Presley’s backing band The Jordanaires, with who Molinari recorded in Nashville in 2009. Simply put he has risen to become one of Britain’s finest country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll singer.
Pete Molinari’s fourth album 'Theosophy' sits at that point where, as Muddy Waters put it, the blues had a baby and they called it rock ‘n’ roll. Here soul, country, blues and rockabilly collide in perfect symbiosis. The songs tell tales of life, love, literature and compact the singer/songwriter’s many decades of musical influences and his globe-spanning, wandering lifestyle down into a collection that is as uplifting as it lush, as classic-sounding as it is contemporary-minded.
Simply put it is the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll distilled down and delivered in neat shots.
The evolution of 'Theosophy' has taken in discussions and/or Pre-Production sessions throughout 2011 and 2012 with a variety of friends and cohorts including Vincent Gallo, Andrew Weatherall, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach - with whom Pete has collaborated - Liam Watson, whose Toe Rag Studio has been home to previous recordings, and Grammy award winning producer/mixer Tchad Blake, whose roll call includes everyone from RZA to T-Bone Burnett to Tom Waits.
Now 2013 sees Pete back living in the Medway Delta – well, Rochester, Kent - after stints residing in Nashville, New York and London. With 'Theosophy' his most assured, diverse and richest album yet the open road beckons once again.
