With his deeper-than-deep grooves, blistering solos, and out-there musical creativity, Pete Ray Biggin plays with such fiery passion that he quickly earned himself a reputation as one of the UK's hottest players. This led him to play with top artists such as Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Incognito, Chaka Khan, Adele, Joss Stone, Jessie J, Robbie Williams, Whitney Houston, Lalah Hathaway, Brand New Heavies, Estelle, and Taio Cruz, and now in the seat of one of his major childhood inspirations, Level 42.

Pete is currently busy recording with and touring the world with Level 42 and remain active with his own group, the funky PBUG (PB Underground), for which Pete is the writer, producer, and musical director. He also played multiple instruments on the group's album Stand Up According to Pete, “Groove, Funk and Soul are my main vibe, but soul, hip-hop, Latin, jazz, rock… it's all good with me too."

And while he describes his drumming as “groovy, musical, fiery and energetic" there is an undeniably moving power to Pete's playing, as is evident when he sits behind the kit and just plays. This was clearly on display when Pete headlined the London Drum Show in 2015, and simply wowed the audience.

Pete says “When I play, I just want to see people moving, dancing… that's my job, to keep good time, to keep it groovy, to listen and give 100% heart."
In essence, that's what Pete Ray Biggin is all about. High energy, funk, soul drumming with a great sense of musicality and a real big groove.
