Most Recent Solo Release
'The Final Breath Before November'
Nearly 3 years in the making... the all new 2nd Edison's Children album has finally arrived. Pete Trewavas and Eric Blackwood's "The Final Breath Before November" is a haunting, atmospheric and sometimes spooky ghost story which isn't really a story at all. Combining elements of Pink Floyd and Trick of the Tail era Genesis, the new CD is nearly a double record set coming in at 79 minutes (only 125 seconds shorter than all 4 sides of Pink Floyd's The Wall) and features the 67 minute long epic "Silhouette". Joining the duo for this album is Henry Rogers of DeeExpus, who recently won the Prog Readers poll for best new drummer. The Final Breath Before November comes in a stunning deluxe 6 panel eco wallet which includes a 20 page "Lyrics and Images booklet" featuring the incredible photography of backing vocalist Wendy "Darling" Pastore. Get yours today... before the darkness comes for you.
Biography
2010/11. Since touring with Transatlantic on the Whirlwind tour. Pete has played two show's with Jem Godfrey, John Mitchell and Craig Blundell.

He has also released a 5 track CD with Robin Boult entitled Acoustic Industry and formed the band Edisons Children with co-writer and founder Eric Pastore.

Edison's Children recently released the Album 'In The Last Waking Moments'.

2009 saw the release of Transatlantic's third studio album 'The Whirlwind' an epic 77 minute continuous piece of music recorded in Nashville immediately after the Marillion weekend in Montreal.

In March of 2009 Pete also performed an instrumental set at the Marillion weekend Holland with long time friend and collaborator Robin Boult.

In 2005 Pete teamed up with John Mitchell (Arena), John Beck (It Bites) and Chris Maitland (Porcupine Tree) for a new outside band called Kino. The debut album Picture was released in early 2005 with an album of demos, b-sides, and live tracks following in 2006.

During June and July 1999, Pete traveled to New York to meet up with Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, Spock's Beard singer Neal Morse, and Flower Kings guitarist Roine Stolt to take part in a "progressive rock supergroup" project. The 2000 album SMPTe by Transatlantic was followed up with a double live CD, Live in America.

In early 2001 Pete returned to the States to record his parts for a second Transatlantic album. Bridge Across Forever was followed by a tour and it's live companion on both CD and DVD Live in Europe.

In 2000, Ian Mosley teamed up with Ben Castle to record Postmankind with Pete on Bass... not the first time Ian and Pete worked together outside Marillion! In 1996, with guitarist Sylvain Gouvernaire as the band Iris, they released the instrumental album Crossing the Desert. In addition, Pete added his playing to bandmate Steve Rothery's 1996 Wishing Tree Carnival of Souls album.

Pete has had a long history of very short-lived bands from his early years, including such gems as Orthi, The Robins, Tamberlane, Heartbeat, East Goes West, and the most successful of the lot, The Metros. The Metros' claim to fame was opening up for Duran Duran in New York in 1982.
