Pete's primary influences as a singer songwriter are Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, Nick Cave, Cat Stevens, Daniel Lanois and Van Morrison. However, he also takes inspiration from Asian ethnic music as well as classical Chinese poetry. Intensely lyrical and introspective, his songs have been described as 'immediately familiar yet eerily personal', 'Zen pop' and 'haunting'. Known in Malaysia as much for his irreverent writing as his music, Pete's artistic voice is famously eclectic - as evidenced by the presence of folk, jazz, rock and ethnic musicians in his bands. He first made his name as a brilliant live performer with a fanatical cult following in Kuala Lumpur. Upon the release of his debut album 'Rustic Living For Urbanites' in June 2003, Pete burst into the national consciousness with 2 chart-topping singles and as nominee / winner of numerous arts awards. He is widely recognised as one of the most exciting creative voices to have emerged from Malaysia for decades.
