Singer/Songwriter Pete Bond left university with possibly fewer skills than he started with. A lack of business advice (the lecturers were more concerned with so-called 'issues' in 1940s avant-garde music - all very interesting, but how do I make a career out of it?) led him into work as a session musician, and often Pete struggled to pay the bills. So he took a gamble. But for Pete, it was the only option. It was all or nothing.
The only trouble was, for someone with such an eclectic taste in music as Pete, how do you get your music out there without bamboozling your audience? Plus, Pete's not the sort of person to narrow down his options. So he created Beat Pond Records - an outlet for all his different musical tastes and skills.
'I had to take the chance - I knew my future was in music'
Our first release - Pete's own 'When You Walk in the Room', was released on 22nd March 2019. It was featured on BBC Introducing: The South on BBC Radio Sussex and Surrey, and was described by Melita Dennett as 'a little bit of an earworm'. Pete's next release, 'Gimme Some Love', is out soon - follow us for more updates!
Jump blues band Pie 'n' Mash go back to Pete's session days, where they met as part of touring show 'Buddy Holly and the Cricketers'. Their debut single, 'Heard About Me', is out on 17th May.
