Le Couteur was born (with one eye closed) in London in 1982, four
days before Musical Youth's 'Pass the Dutchie' replaced 'Eye Of the
Tiger' as Number 1 in the UK Singles Chart. He grew up singing very high in choirs and listening to Leonard
Cohen, Annie Lennox, Clannad and 30s jazz with his parents.
After studying Literature in Durham and Art in Bristol, Peter moved
to Prague in October 2008 to work on his portfolio for an MA in Sculpture.
He started writing songs about four years ago but played his first
solo gig at the Globe this February (the recording is on www.myspace.com/peterlecouteur).
Peter is currently working on an EP of songs based on myths, but
so far has only finished the song about Actaeon.
