Pete Hansen

Blues, Funk, Rock
Genre(s): 

Hailing from the historic Saint John River Valley, Pete Hansen is a musical triple threat - an exceptional guitarist, dynamic songwriter, and compelling vocalist.

"Here's Not Here" - Pete Hansen's first independently released album (November 2017) - fuses sophisticated blues, rock, and pop into a highly contagious sound that breaks genre stereotypes and pushes the blues in new directions.

"Bad Break" is Pete Hansen's second independently released album (September 2018) that expands his rock edge while maintaining roots in sophisticated blues. The ferocious guitar instrumental, "Giv'er", was selected as a top 100 most played track of 2018 on CHSR-FM while title track "Bad Break" was featured on CBC Radio's Shift NB.
