Peter Marsh's latest album has now been released.
Initial writing and pre-production for Back to the Beginning took place in rural France.
Pete then headed to London to collaborate with renowned engineer and producer Roger Béchirian (The Undertones, Elvis Costello, Bell X1, Squeeze, Tom McRae), at Brightside Studios.
The ten songs that resulted offer slivers of magic and moments of sublime comfort,
... an album of love and loss, optimism and progression that evokes a diverse range of musical genres
- from funk rock 'Lucky Man', soul 'Shoulder to Cry On', acoustic 'Fly Away' to the jazz blues feel of title track 'Back to the Beginning'.
At a first listen, both lyrics and melodies might sound deceptively simple, but pay it some attention, let the sonic construction and rhythmic invention get under your skin.
In an era of accelerated pop career burnouts and X-factor celebrity, 'Back To The Beginning' harks back to a time when craft and emotion meant so much more.
It's an album that can’t fail to appeal, both musically and lyrically, to a broad audience.

Proceeds from sales of this beautiful song about coming to terms with a bereavement will be donated to St Christopher’s Hospice.
The single was released on 1 December 2016 and is available for download from music download sites and streaming services. Fly Away is the first single from Peter Marsh's forthcoming album 'Back To The Beginning' (which will be released in early 2017). ‘Back to the Beginning’, includes a number of tracks inspired by the loss of Peter Marsh's partner, Laurence, three years ago. Laurence was cared for by St Christopher’s Hospice at the end of her life and Peter is donating the profits from sales of ’Fly Away’, a single from the album, to St Christopher’s, in her memory. Although it was inspired by his personal loss, Peter believes and hopes that ‘Fly Away’ will be meaningful and inspirational to anyone suffering from the loss of a loved one - those memories which can be especially difficult to deal with at Christmas time. We’re sure you’ll agree that it’s a beautiful song and we encourage you to download the track from one of the following links: Remember you’ll be benefiting St Christopher’s with every purchase!
