Bio

Pete Allan shares fitting new single Summer Holiday; on tour now! 
"Tightly packed with good vibes." Dave Ruby Howe - triple j Unearthed
At its core, the Pete Allan Collective shares the same heart and soul as Pete's trademark solo sound of coastal roots rock. But the addition of Daniel Seese (drums) and Josiah Chapman (keys) has allowed for new and exciting sonic elements that have taken the talented songwriter's music to the next level. Moody and smooth, Summer Holiday is the first taste of the new band, and a perfect introduction – displaying all of the sophistication and nuance that can be produced by the Pete Allan Collective.

"Sipping bottles by the beach, watching moonrise over sea", entreats Pete in Summer Holiday. His invitation summons the inner troubadour, beckoning us to leave our day to day monotony and escape on an adventure. Enticing like a siren, the band create a perfect musical backdrop that is equal parts silky smooth and smoky. Something mysterious, yet warming and familiar. Undulating in gentle waves, the song is a perfect intersection of mellow grooves, ambient guitars and heartfelt vocals.
A native of the Sunshine Coast hub of Noosa, there has always been a natural relationship between Pete Allan's music and the ocean. Pete's blend of effortlessly cool vocals and hypnotic, swaying rhythms are the musical epitome of the paradise he grew up in. Beautifully produced by Paulie B at Yama-Nui, Summer Holiday has arrived just in time for the warmer months. To celebrate its release, the Pete Allan Collective will be hitting the road to share new songs – taking the band across Nth Qld, WA and NSW on a true summer holiday.

LOVE this. Soulful and sublime. Pete's voice relaxes while delivering a heartfelt message. Love the mix of instruments and tempo, I'll be listening to this track all through summer.

As Pete says in the song, 'It's not complicated, it's not overrated'... kinda sums up this boppy feel-good track. I feel sunny just listening to it.

Having grown up on the sunny coast I can totally relate to this song. I know that I should be grateful for the natural beauty around me every day ... but sometimes I just get too caught up in my 'busy' work life and forget to stop and look. Pete's lyrics in this tune are simply spot on!
