. PETER BARRON, GONNA KEEP ROCKING TIL MY BLOOD RUNS BLACK.

TSS-f.-cover

Born in the winter of 1957 in the shadow of Windsor Castle (but sadly lacking any blue blood), Peter first picked up a guitar at the age of 14 after hearing ‘Ride a White Swan’ on the radio.

He immediately put it down again as he hadn’t a clue how to play it – but after a while the necessary two chords* were mastered and he went on to play in various rock and pop ensembles throughout the 70s and 80s.

At the beginning of the 21st Century, he was reborn and rocking with a new attitude, new guitar (new hat) and a whole host of new and original tunes.

‘Jupiter Diamond’ was conceived/written/recorded and published at the beginning of 2014.

This latest album sees Peter fronting a strong rhythm section (with Nick Harradence on drums and Danny Lectrow on bass) performing ten new and original songs. Rooted a little in the 70′s/80′s but with its (bleeding) heart in the 21st century, the songs are mostly up-tempo electric rock numbers with catchy hooks.

A couple of the songs have recently been picked up by the rock radio station ARfm who liked the album enough to feature tracks on three of their radio shows. (‘Bad Blood’ being a particular favourite)

Peter has a new album planned for 2015.
