Biography

Amongst The Pigeons - Hoodie

In simple terms, Amongst The Pigeons is an electronica artist. It is only when you try going beyond that simple description, you come to realise there is nothing straightforward about Amongst The Pigeons.

Words like ‘diverse, individual, inspiring, lofi, playful, psychedelic, quirky, weird and wonky’, have all been used to try and explain what is going on, but maybe somethings should not be pigeon-holed.

Over the last 15 years Amongst The Pigeons has made it clear they are not trying to follow any mainstream musical trends.  This approach has contributed to praise and accolade across the self-releasing of 4 full-length albums, numerous EPs and a whole host of one-off singles.

In many ways this is why the name was originally chosen by West Sussex based producer and performer Daniel Parsons who has very much followed his own D.I.Y path whilst creating a unique and exciting sound.

During this time there has also been an array of high-profile live shows including slots at festivals such as Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party and numerous smaller boutique festivals across the U.K.

Equally happy performing in a late night dance tent or at family friendly events, Amongst The Pigeons has something for everyone.  The ATP Live Show continues to win over audiences with a mix of fresh music, pigeon facts, poems and crowd engagement.

Amongst The Pigeons is an all inclusive artist and promotes diversity, equality and inclusion in everything they do,  supporting charity events, gender balance on line-ups and environmental matters.

The Amongst The Pigeons mantra is Peace & Feathers …. come and get amongst it.

Audio

The tracks below give you a feel as to what ATP sounds like. I have released close to 100 songs and my music is quite eclectic. The ATP Live show focuses on the more instrumental tracks but I do bring guest vocalists along when I can.


Live videos

These are a selection of Live Videos to show what to expect from an ATP Live Show.

My set is a 30-60 minuntes of live, exciting 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 music and the pigeon elements.

My show is family friendly and works alongside more traditional bands but the ideal time slot is later in the evening.

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