Influences include: Neil and Tim Finn, Jimmy Webb, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Elton John and Dave Dobbyn.  A New Zealander by birth, I grew up with the sound of these great songwriters drifting through my family home.

As a Rotary exchange student to Wyoming, USA I won the ‘Stars of Tomorrow ‘ 1984 Competition (check out the footage on YouTube). Upon leaving school I became a professional musician, performing locally with various bands and solo. I formed the band ‘Strangetown’ with musician and longtime friend Paul Dredge. Strangetown played at NZ’s Mountain Rock Festival in 1996. Later that year I played the leading role in Jesus Christ Superstar.

In 2001 I leapt at the opportunity to play live on stage with Neil Finn during his NZ 2001 tour.

After moving to Australia in 1997 I’ve continued to create music, played numerous gigs around Melbourne and formed the band ‘Pete Pascoe and The Patient Hum’ (formerly PASCOE). I also continue to perform in various locations and write and record music.
