Its been a long journey from being a founder member of 80’s pop band Dexys Midnight Runners and playing and writing two songs on their celebrated debut album Searching for the Young Soul Rebels to London's hot new Burlesque and Cabaret scene . His life took a variety of ups and downs ,playing with all sorts from the Damned,an album with Carmel to the Jive Aces . From stadiums in South Africa with Rodriguez to  Berlin squats with Serious Drinking . Pete Saunders has done a lot of playing and a lot of living and you can hear it in his singing .
He has an unmistakable style bluesy with hints of Tom Waits and Dr John .Soulful gritty singing both original material some timeless classics and some un expected covers.
