Biography

Pete Samples is on his way out.

Working as a one-man creative force, Pete Samples mindfully crafts each of his albums as an author would a storybook set for a grander life. A skilled multi-instrumentalist, he approaches his music as a production – not one song thought of without the others, not one album released without the pure and fantastic experience of a live show taken into account. His approach to music production is simple, refreshing, and powerful. It is of a fan first and musician later: always creating for the shared, yet intimately individual experience that music has the magical ability to locate.

Bekonscot, Pete Samples’ latest and final album, is an ode to memories past – a summary of ideas, of concepts, of visual and auditory experiences. As a maker of miniatures, Pete Samples was inspired by the album’s namesake, Bekonscot Model Village, the world’s first outdoor miniature landscape. Just as the model village is placed in a natural environment, taking advantage of each of the senses in unison, this album assumes a similar approach. It is the spirit of Bekonscot, with its charming imperfections and ability to be both small and grand that make it special. Featuring out-of-the-ordinary instrumentation and unusual production techniques, this is at once a delicately lush soundscape and an aggressive beat-heavy pop experience. Included in the release of Bekonscot, the album, is a collection of new and old songs, a tiny book of a series of miniature models, a 45-minute concept video, and a handmade embroidered leather case, bound together with a personally-chosen button and string.
