LiVES (aka Peter Chisholm) is a singer/songwriter from the UK (now based in Biarritz, France)

LiVES is a multi genre songwriter, never conforming to one single style…technically he is a singer/songwriter…. BUT he is no ordinary solo artist with an acoustic guitar…!

He is loud and intense…His shows are heavy, dark, wild and beautiful, with a blues voice that fills up the room as he lays his emotions bare for all to hear and see. It can be uncompromisingly real AND lushly psychedelic – a solo performer like no other.

His performance is visceral, energetic and human…and he has melodies to die for! At times it’s hard to realise that one man is making all this noise in front of me

Off stage his music is used on T.V, film and advertising throughout the world including; BBC, Canal Plus, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Warner Bros, ESPN, CBS, Sony, MTV, Netflix and many major brands for advertising.

Peter has also written for/with James Morrison, Bob Geldof, Sony BMG and collaborated with producers such as John Cornfield (Muse, Supergrass, Razorlight) and Pete Briquette (Tricky, Boomtown Rats, Renaud, Glen Hansard).

He has had 3 songs in Kerrang Magazine’s Top 10 Songs Of The Week chart and has been ‘Record Of The Week/Month’ in The Guardian, The Fly, Rocksound and CMJ Magazine.
