Pete Sen

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

Pete was born in 1974 in London Ontario Canada to Manoj Sen, a Bangladeshi Orthopedic Surgeon and Diana Neale, a school teacher. Pete's father was a singer and sitar player and would sing to him as a child. When he died, Pete was only four years old and from that day, music became Pete's life.

 

At the age of 18, he went to Paris where he performed in the Irish Bars with a band of school mates, playing trad Irish jigs and reels at breakneck speed. They earned a reputation and supported among others 'The Saw Doctors' and 'The Cheiftans'. Pete went on to study at 'The London College of Music' and the rest of the band went to Oxford. The band continued to play in Oxford where Pete met Nell Gifford who would later employ him as Musical Director of Giffords Circus.

 

After several years, Pete left Giffords circus to marry singer Claire Collins. They settled in Cheltenham and Claire provides vocals on all of Pete's tracks.

 

Pete and Claire love to play live and with their fellow musicians, they form a 6 piece band 'The Anthem Sprinters'. Their latest album has just been released and 'The Shipping Forecast' can be found on all digital platforms.

 

If you're wondering what they sound like, think Fleetwood Mac meets Steely Dan but with a bit of something else in there.. Lots of vocal harmony, Jazzy instrumentation but rooted in folk. All music is original. Have a listen!
