Pete Flude’s story begins in Birmingham, England when he showed interest in the guitar at the age of 3.
Pete began learning from legendary folk artists such as Bob Dylan and Joan Baez and was playing and recording in his family band ‘Seraphina’ by the age of 12 featuring on two releases.
By the age of 15, he had become heavily influenced by artists such as Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Jimi Hendrix and Santana and was bought his first electric guitar. Feeling he needed to grow from his early folk roots, Pete formed his first rock band ‘Pure Greed’ and began loudly making an impact on the Birmingham pub scene.
Showing little interest at school, it was clear that professional guitarist was his only path and joined a ‘Madness’ tribute band at the age of 17.
Although unfamiliar with Ska, he thrived with this new style of music and began playing 6 nights a week all over England.
After 4 years of intense touring and a short stint in a resident band in Wales, Pete was head-hunted at a showcase in Yorkshire by a Funk / Soul touring band called ‘Beat Street International’ who were impressed with his energy.
Once again, Pete was called upon to play a completely new style of music and became influenced by artists such as Prince, Chic’ and Parliament / Funkadelic. Now as well as England, Pete began regularly touring abroad including Germany and Israel.
After playing in many top resident and touring bands during the 2000’s, Pete had found a voice and began his solo career on the cruise ships in Florida in 2009.
In 2010, Pete took his solo show to Australia exciting audiences with his rich rocky vocals and funky guitar playing. He also joined the Hip hop / Rock band ‘Easy Tigers’ on an exciting tour or Western Australia, supported Daryl Braithwaite and made two TV appearances with the funk driven soul band ‘DD Soul.’
After a chance visit home to England, Pete made a short demo with his old family band. Returning to his folk roots but this time picking up an electric guitar, The Medieval / Orchestral / Rock group ‘The Fludes’ was born.
In 2014, Pete returned home to write, play, sing, record and produce the 2015 epic release ‘The Fludes – Ancient Tales’ which acquired a worldwide publishing deal and received global acclaim by legendary producer ‘Mark S. Berry.’
Pete is proudly sponsored by ‘Rotosound’ strings, ‘Spear’ guitars and Germanys ‘ML-Factory.’
