Peter Lawrie-Winfield has only ever wanted to make music. The likes of touring and recognition is just extra. To be around him is to be around a man who’s clearly all about his passions. We see people like that, and never imagine that they can lose their way, but it does happen and it is a very human experience - to find yourself unexpectedly in the darkness. Peter experienced a dark period, due to alcoholism and heightened anxiety. Thankfully, he’s come out on the other side, still battling his demons day in and day out. And to our surprise, and probably to his own surprise, he has music to share in the form of a new Until The Ribbon Breaks album.

“Music always was a refuge for me. A welcome distraction from my own thoughts.”
