PETE LAWRIE - IN THE END
INTERVIEW AND SESSION FILMED FOR BALCONY TV LONDON
PRESENTED BY IVAN BERRY
PRODUCED BY VIDEO-BOX
"I've always listened to singer-songwriters, but I really love hip-hop as well," says Lawrie. "I love everything from DJ Shadow and Four Tet to Roots Manuva or even Jay-Z, but I grew up listening to my mum's Motown records and soul music too. My dad's thing was Paul Simon and Elton John so all that's in there too. There's probably not much hip-hop left on my album, but you can hear the influences."
So, while you could picture Lawrie getting a giant festival crowd on its feet with a rousing singalong of How Could I Complain? Or rocking the house with the thumping party-time Stax groove of Fell Into The River, pieces like Just Dust or A Little Brighter have been constructed from a mosaic of tones and treatments.
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
