Biography

Amongst The Pigeons - Hoodie

Since 2004 Amongst The Pigeons has been defining a sound that only they fit into. Never ones to follow the latest musical trend they have stuck to crafting their own blend of ‘post-party-mash-up’ which has been winning praise and accolade through the release of 3 full-length albums, a numerous EPs and one-off singles.

Although hard to ‘pigeon-hole’ the sound of ATP has been described as ‘a dark Mr. Scruff’ and full of ‘relentless imagination’ – taking influence from sci-fi soundtracks and artists such as Orbital and Underworld.

It was the 2012 album ‘Get Amongst It’ that saw ATP really come into their own, with the promotional singles getting repeat airplay on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, XFM and local stations up and down the country.

On record, when needed, ATP has enlisted guest vocalists, including the likes of Frank Turner, Beans on Toast, Ben Marwood, Oxygen Thief, Chris T-T, Piers Blewett and a whole host of up-and-coming artists.

Their third album was released on 15 November 2019 and received excellent reviews.

“In many ways Those Stolen Moments is a celebration of the best bits of 90s dance music, avoiding its excesses and using inventive beats and creative sounds to great effect.”

When released from their very own Beat Shed Studio the ATP:LIVE show had won over festival fans by gracing the line ups of festivals such as Brighton:Live, The Great Escape, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Blissfields and Southsea Fest. 

There has also been a host of support slots for acts such as GrassCut, BitBin, SeeFeel, M.E.N, Dodgy, Moon Hooch and more recently FatBoySlim.

The live show has evolved from just being a man playing music on stage to a fully immersive pigeon experience with pigeon facts, dance competitions and the famous pigeon masks. This may all sound odd but audiences love it.

Also not content with bookings on stage ATP have created an electronic guerilla ‘busking’ show. The whole set up including lights and speakers runs off a USB-powerbank which means that they can rock up anywhere, anytime and play a show. These sets have been going down incredibly well at recent festivals and will continue to evolve in 2020.

Moving forward ATP will be releasing more new music in 2020 and continuing to play as many shows and festivals as possible.

Audio

The tracks below give you a feel as to what ATP sounds like. I have released over 80 songs and my music is quite eclectic.


Live videos

These are a selection of Live Videos to show what to expect from me at a show.

I also have a number of pigeon inspired promo videos on my YouTube page.

My live show is currently a 30-45 min set of live upbeat original dance/electronica intersperced with pigeon trivia. (It is not a DJ set).  This may sound bizarre but crowds really love the combination of original dance music and the pigeon element.

My show is family friendly and works alongside more traditional bands but the ideal time slot is a bit later in the evening when it’s darker.

I have previously played festivals such as The Great Escape, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Blissfields, and numerous other events across the country.
