THePETEBOX is a solo performer, musician, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose pioneering live show has ignited audiences across the world. Breaking out as an award-winning beatboxer he soon redefined the genre through the use of his loop pedal, guitar and an otherworldly, multi-phonic voicebox.
Witnessing a THePETEBOX live show is an immersive experience as he creates songs sound by sound, layer by layer, reveal on reveal, loop on loop, one man building tracks that are as sonically massive as any full band setup or DJ set. He possesses a primal talent and has transformed it into music that captures the imagination of people from all walks of life and from every corner of the world.
THePETEBOX is a singular artist untouched by trends or fads, someone who is genuinely and fiercely independent who has tapped into an art form of true expression that connects directly with the hearts of a rapidly growing fan base. THePETEBOX’s debut album Future Loops, a 'live, studio, video' album comprising of original tracks and reworks of his favourite songs has reached over 30 million views on his YouTube channel.
Through working with visionary director, Simon Ellis, his videos have reached audiences worldwide and his covers endorsed by their legendary creators, most recently Brian Wilson singing his praises for a unique cover of I Get Around and The Pixies posting the viral Where Is My Mind? video on their official website. Future Loops, (released on his own label, Light River Records) is on its third pressing and has sold over 50,000 digital copies through word of mouth alone.
Use The Fire, THePETEBOX’s soon to be released sophomore album of entirely original material, sees him push the boundaries of beatboxing on record once again as he takes us on a journey of sonic exploration never heard before. His innovative recording and performance process for this record is presented in a collection of instantly catchy songs, his rock roots shining through as he flexes his well honed and diverse musical muscles through dance beats, rock riffs and brutally honest yet sing along lyrics.
