Pete Alderton doesn‘t have to live the blues to make this album credible.
The British-born son of an American G.I. stationed in England has his roots firmly tied down in this album, always crossing the borderline between playing the blues and composing as a singer-songwriter. Maintaining his own brand of blues-pop and sometimes adding a touch of Latin Flair, his voice has a certain ruggedness which adds softness to his ballads.
‘Living on Love' tells a complex story ranging from the isolation of a life on the road to a man's experience with love, complete with all the joy and pain that accompanies that and even touching on the often overlooked spiritual aspect of love. This album is a deeply emotive work with which almost anyone would be able to identify.
Pete Alderton puts his whole soul into his performance with sophistication reminiscent of J.J.Cale and coolness similar to Issac Hayes.
Pete is supported on this album by Carsten Mentzel, Dagobert Böhm (acoustic guitar), Siggi Zufacher (bass) and Michel Roggenland (drums).
