Pete Molinari / Bio

New Album 'A Train Bound For Glory' Recorded at Playground Sound Studio in Nashville, Produced by Adam Landry & Justin Collings and featuring contributions from The Jordanaires and Chris Scruggs, ‘A Train Bound For Glory’ is the third album by Kent born singer-songwriter Pete Molinari. His debut album ‘Walking Off The Map’ (2006) had been recorded and produced live by Billy Childish in his kitchen, while Molinari's adventures on the Guardian backed Big Bertha label had brought him public attention thanks to regular updates in that newspaper courtesy of would-be music mogul Will Hodgkinson. His second album ‘A Virtual Landslide’ (2008) was produced by Liam Watson at Toe Rag Studios, both released on Damaged Goods Records, received widespread acclaim and led to Radio 2 recording sessions for Mark Lamarr, Bob Harris, Janice Long, Aled Jones and Radcliffe & Maconie (who also bestowed Record of the Week status on two singles released from the album). Other radio highlights at this time included guest appearances for Robert Elms, Sean Rowley, 6 Music, Radio 4's Loose Ends and long time supporter Ralph McLean's BBC Ulster show (who was to make the record his ‘Album Of The Decade’). It was soon to become a ‘musicians' album", with the likes of Ray Davies, Paul Weller and Richard Hawley all singing its praises, while Molinari also received a Mojo Honours List nomination as Best Newcomer and to help launch Mojo Honours List, Pete played live at the HMV flagship store in Oxford Street, alongside the legendary Fall. The album also finished the year ranked number 18 in Mojo magazine’s '50 Best Albums Of 2008'.
