“I hate talented People” – Midge Ure after hearing
Peter McVeigh sing for the 1st time.
A track featuring Busta Rhymes, collaborations with a member of the Goo Goo Dolls, representing his country in Nashville and touring success in Europe… is this all you need to know about Peter McVeigh?
A music teacher by day squeezing in songwriting, producing and performing, Peter should probably slow down, but it seems like interest in this charismatic musician is snowballing. He can turn his hand to any style of music, but still make it sound like Peter McVeigh. The stand out of his live performances is his soaring vocal range coupled with his ability to deliver a song like he’s living the words.
Sharing intimate stage settings with Midge Ure and Nanci Griffith, Peter is also used to playing on bigger stages like Tennents Vital on the same roster as Florence and the Machine, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Stone Roses.
In the coming months Peter will release his collaboration with Mike Malinin (Goo Goo Dolls) and return to Europe for another tour. Keep your eyes on petermcveigh.com for further updates.
The ‘Lights EP’ introduced McVeigh as
“The producer of choice for a growing number of Northern Irish acts, Peter McVeigh is also one of the finest songwriters operating anywhere on this island. “ – Hotpress Magazine

Nashville and a Goo Goo Doll
It’s been a busy few months and March is getting even busier! I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Mike Malinin (drummer of the Goo Goo Dolls) on some new tracks. We are both very excited about what we’ve produced and can’t wait to get your feedback.
This week I’ll have the pleasure of singing alongside a UK music legend, Midge Ure, front man of Ultravox, writer of “Do they know it’s Christmas?” and co-organiser of Band Aid alongside Bob Geldof. The Belfast Nashville festival has given me so many opportunities like this and I’m so grateful to get the chance to stand alongside musicians of such high caliber.
And… I’m going to NASHVILLE. Another amazing opportunity from the Belfast Nashville Festival. I’ll be travelling over with 3 other songwriters to showcase my music and meet lots of music industry peeps over there. The highlight will be playing in the famous Bluebird Café. I’ll hopefully squeeze in a bit of sightseeing when I’m there. And maybe a rest in April…maybe.
