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 2 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.

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.

Following a 5 year break, to follow other musical projects, ATP is back in 2019 with a brand new live show and a host of new material. Their first show in 6 years took place at the 2019 Glastonbury Festival and they are already booking shows for later this year and next year.

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.

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.

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.”

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

Audio

These are a selection of tracks to listen to. I have released over 80 songs and my music is quite eclectic.

My third album was released on 15.11.19 – it is 9 tracks and 25 mins long. If you fancy giving it a listen I have put a Spotify embed below.


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). 

In terms of playing live I have previously played festivals such as Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Blissfields, and numerous other events across the country.  

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.

If you want to watch a full 30 minute live show the video below was filmed on a Go Pro at a recent show.
