Welcome

Alreet, the name’s Beat.

Pete Beat to be precise. I hope you like my funky beats, sweet harmonies, and amateur philosophy… bringing you odd music for the modern age, from Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, the hallowed Toon.

About my last EP:

“Pete Beat made the most charming record of last week, if not the entire year” – Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

The meaning of life: No one gets out alive so you might as well have a laugh, have fun with your friends, and not worry too much, this is my view, these songs are the expression of it.

I’m about to release my debut album The Rat Race and would love to share it with you… currently working on some bonus content: interviews, lyrics, chords, acoustic performances and more. Sign up to get it all, and hear it before the release date.

The world’s richest 26 people own the same wealth as the poorest 50% (3.8 billion people).

A 1% wealth tax could educate every child not in school. Seem fair, what’s the catch?

The catch is the part which holds the guillotine blade before it falls 😘

Have a Very Merry Christmas

A lot of people feel pressure to have ‘the perfect Christmas’, especially if they are struggling with other issues such as anxiety and depression at the same time. The pressure is piled on by advertisers who want to boost sales.

This is my Christmas song, I hope you like it… (link to Spotify)
