Biography

Pete Riley - Singer/Songwriter/Producer

Born & raised in Liverpool, England, Pete Riley has been playing music ever since he can remember. He played his first gig in Liverpool, doing Beatle covers at the age of 12. After being paid 15 pounds, he realized this was what he was going to do with the rest of his life! He went on to play in numerous bands, touring the British Isles through the 80’s and early 90’s.

In late 1996, Pete’s band, TREEHOUSE, decided to try their luck in the USA. They were strongly advised against it, as it could be a costly mistake. They disregarded the advice, and set off for America, backed by their then manager, Dan Priest.

After grinding it out in the legendary venues of Los Angeles {Whiskey a GoGo, The Troubadour, etc.}, word got around about the band from Liverpool. As fate would have it, on a scheduled day off, they were invited to play an impromptu gig on the Sunset Strip at Borders Book Store. The boys amazingly landed themselves a record deal with Atlantic Records.

In 1997, Pete began touring the US with Treehouse, timed perfectly with their newly released debut album, “Nobody’s Monkey.” Pete and the band opened for so many major US bands that it is hard to number them! At the end of 2001, after their final tour with The Cranberries in the UK, Treehouse split up.
