Peter James Millson’s gloriously melodic 2014 debut ‘Sweet The Love That Meets Return’ (produced by Danny George Wilson) drew critical comparisons with the likes of Paddy McAloon, Jackson Browne and Roddy Frame.

“Back in the day… I used to photograph friends and their bands,” recalls Millson, “I took my box of prints up to the NME. Trips abroad, very exciting. Then started doing portraits for The Guardian newspaper. Met lots of heroes of the music world. Published a book of photos called Home Entertainment. The National Portrait Gallery acquired six of my portraits. One of which was of the late Bert Jansch. Moved to Dorset with my family.”

“Found my guitar. Wrote songs like it was going out of fashion. Played hundreds of solo pub gigs and open mics with a few choice supports (Boo Hewerdine, Martha Tilston). Started recording at home. Had some fantastic mixes done by Adrian McNally (The Unthanks).”

“Asked Danny George Wilson (Danny & The Champions of the World; Grand Drive) to produce my first album (Sweet The Love That Meets Return). He got the mixture of hope, love, regret and good times just right. He kept my inclination to sweeten things under control. We made a record that I’m still totally delighted with.”

2016 saw the release of the self-produced, second studio album, The Red Café and the album of phone/field-recordings—Mobile, produced by Boo Hewerdine, came out in 2017.

  1. Hi Peter,
    Really enjoyed your concert in Ilminster on Friday evening, I thought you sounded very like Mike Scott, and I would also say like Blue Nile, Whatever, you were amazing!

  2. Hello Pete
    Belated thanks for enjoyable gig at cheese & grain. Particularly loved new “fairground?” song you opened up with. Good stuff. Felt you should’ve headlined.
    Best
    Chris
