Hailing from Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, Pete Fagan is one on the hardest working Irish musicians on the circuit.
With an impressive list of collaborators over the years,
Pete came to prominence on the live circuit in Ireland in the late '90's, and quickly turned heads with his powerful (& soulful) vocal talents. He's guested / toured with a veritable list of "who's who" artists on the Irish music scene (from the stars of "The Commitments" to Irish songwriting legends such as "Paul Brady").
He's performed with a plethora of artists from Paulo Nutini to Bryan Adams.
But, it is his songwriting, and in particular his work as half of the duo, Edisons, that has brought him centre-stage, and onto the radar of mainstream radio, and festival promoters. With his musical partner in crime, Fran King, Edisons play Electric Picnic for the second time this year.
As a solo artist Pete continues to be a prolific songwriter, with a new record in the can.
