A special Double Billing of Les Glover & Pete Riley

Les has been performing for 39 years, , either as a solo artist or as part of a band, both in the UK and across Europe, and has several TV and radio appearances. He has a healthy love of all styles of music, from Hank Williams to Motorhead and an unhealthy love of 70's Pop. Les can often be heard incorporating an interesting cover or two into his live performances.
His early band days of the late 70's/early 80's saw him as part of the Liverpool music scene playing at the now legendary Eric's club, supporting the likes of The Chameleons and A Flock of Seagulls.
Having a very dynamic approach to playing, Les applies his unique style to his own original compositions. His album 'The Love Terrorist' contains twelve tracks, covering a variety of subjects; from bitter sweet observations with hints of poignancy and humour, to life affirming, joyous rants, aimed at people who are old of mind but young at heart, or vice versa!

Pete is a Singer/Songwriter born and raised in Liverpool, and has been playing music ever since he can remember,
He signed to Atlantic Records resulting in a 2 year tour of the USA with his band Treehouse who went on to release their debut album "Nobody's Monkey" to critical acclaim.
After returning to the U.K. Pete then embarked on a solo career touring solo acoustic in the UK and Ireland. On release of his first solo album "After The Parade" Pete was invited back over to the USA to work with American, multi -platinum selling artist Edwin McCain whom he had struck up a solid friendship with during his previous stints in America. It wasn't long before Pete was asked by Edwin to join his band as a permanent member.
Pete relocated to the USA for a decade and went on to forge a solid writing partnership with Edwin McCain and co-wrote three successful albums as well as co-writing the USA radio hit single's "Shooting Stars" and Say Anything the first of which appeared in a Warner Bros T.V. drama about a young Jack and Bobby Kennedy

Since then Pete has been writing/recording and producing with many different artistes worldwide. These include Edwin McCain, Narada Michael Walden, Henry Priestman (The Christians) Maia Sharp, Angie Aparo, Kevn Kinney, and most recently Amy Wadge. Throughout the last few years there has also been numerous TV appearances in the USA (VH1, CBS Good Morning America) and more recently on BBC1 in the UK (The Politics Show) Pete's songs have also featured in the Warner Bros TV drama "Jack and Bobby" and the internationally released Miley Cyrus Disney Movie "The Last Song". and more recently in Ruth Jones Sky One Hit TV Show Stella,
Pete has also collaborated with singer/songwriter Amy Wadge, resulting in a 3 album 6 year touring stint promoting albums Rivers Apart, Afterglow and Bygones.
Pete has recently completed a successful European tour of the Netherlands, including Radio and TV appearances and is scheduled to return in 2018.
