TIGER MOTH TALES
Tiger Moth Tales is essentially the brain child of nottinghamshire based musician and writer Peter Jones, who has been involved in the music industry performing around the UK and recording his own material since the late 90s.
Pete, (33) was born on October 6th 1980. At fifteen months Pete lost his sight due to Retinoblastoma. From an early age he was into all things musical and at the age of four had his first piano. "Music has always been a huge part of my life. How much of that was influenced by my sight loss it's impossible to say, but i've always had a knack of picking up music by ear pretty quickly." (Pete)
At the beginning of 2013, Pete started work on a new project. This took the form of a concept album, and it was the first progressive music he had written since he was a teenager. Throughout 2013 Pete continued to write and record new progressive music and by October 2013 "Cocoon" the new album was complete. Cocoon is a concept album on the subject of Childhood, and coming to terms with the loss of childhood. The journey goes through stages of Innocence, joy, imagination, stories, friendship, love, nature, nostalgia, grief, acceptance and rebirth.
The album which has had very promising initial responses will be released under the band name "Tiger Moth Tales". The new name follows Pete's decision to continue writing in the Progressive genre, "The name Tiger Moth Tales comes from various references, one of which is from Steve Hackett who is one of my biggest influences in this field. Having written the album, i've turned on a creative tap which I thought had run dry along time ago, and i'm already working on ideas for a new progressive album. It seemed like a good idea to have a band name as it clearly differentiates between my prog output and the pop stuff I brought out before and who knows may return to some day. On Cocoon I pretty much did everything from start to finish, but it would be nice to collaborate and include other musicians in future albums, so a band name feels better from that aspect too. It allows room for expansion." (Pete)
