From her emotion-forward approach to sharing across all platforms to her songs stemming from her most intimate moments, everything about Los Angeles artist Beck Pete bursts with every inch of her truth. Gravitating towards unconventional melodies and authentic storytelling lyricism, the songstress curates a unique style of pop songwriting that is always rooted in experience, written from a place of yearning, and always brutally honest.
Inspired by a need to highlight the most vulnerable and extreme sides of the herself in an attempt to accept them, Pete has created an outlet for people to feel a little less alone. Combining the most feminine and masculine versions of herself, along with the most emotional and most overwhelming artistic, Pete finds herself able to thrive in these extremes and seeks to encourage others to do the same.
Fusing contemporary pop elements with rock and roll textures and unpredictable, buoyant background vocals, Beck creates an undeniably distinctive sonic landscape that listeners can truly lose themselves in, and that defies current musical landscapes. Mastered by Joe Laporta (Shawn Mendes, Leon Bridges, Imagine Dragons) and mixed by Ryan Gilligan (Kevin Garrett) Pete’s music serves at a reminder of the importance of the duality of vulnerability and strength. “I hope that every one of my songs facilitate communication. The only way that we will move forward in any capacity is to normalize uncomfortable situations. We need to normalize communication. Normalize feeling. Normalize heartbreak”, confides Pete.
New single ‘Gently Break It’ thematically sheds light on a situation that is all too common romantically, where a person convinces themselves that they are undeserving of love and therefore romanticizes the idea of playing a victim in an unhealthy relationship. Pete reveals, “I have been that girl, and can’t say that I won’t be again. I’m just hoping that this song serves a reminder of that tendency, and spreads awareness to everyone who hears it that, one, they are not alone in this cycle and two, they can break it by believing they are worthy of something positive and healthy”. Sonically the song truly takes the listener on a ride featuring intricate hooky melodies and multiple musical scene changes all with an overall underlying indisputable element of soul.
Pete has spilled her heart for an increasing number of eyes during her two short years in Los Angeles, packing historic venues across the city, including The Hotel Café and the iconic Troubadour. Beck Pete is excited to continue releasing music that showcases sides of love and the human condition that others often avoid. ‘Gently Break It’ is currently available worldwide.
