Peter Pote, former front man of Evolver One, has teamed up with producer Mark Beling and released his debut solo single Thunder Rose, which is available as a free download on his website. This edgy yet melodic rock track highlights Pote’s raspy and powerful vocal abilities.
The imagery in the title shows the strong contrast between thunder, a very powerful force of nature, next to a rose, which is beautiful and very delicate. “Both these images made me think that we are like this in our make up as human beings, that we possess these opposites the ying and the yang if you like,” reflected Peter on the lyrics of the song, “Sometimes we are strong and other days we just want to hide away from the world and stay in bed, yet we all have an inner voice that urges us to push on through to carry on, no matter what we are going through.”
Earlier this year, Peter parted ways with Evolver One to take the next steps in discovering, exploring and enhancing his talent as a singer and a songwriter. His memorable vocals and songwriting capabilities were very evident in the band’s many hits including Lets Get Naked, Get Up, Why Are We Lonely and Criminal.
