Amplified Man is the new solo project from Emergency Librarian guitarist, Pete Kidd. This month sees the release of a compelling new EP entitled Sparkle, which represents a culmination of ambient soundscapes.

Based in the North East, Pete has been performing music around the UK since the early 90s and is one of the founding members of Whitley Bay’s Emergency Librarian. This four-track EP is a cross-genre blend of electronic music and ethereal rock ‘n’ roll.

Amplified Man has provided a new creative outlet for Pete during lockdown, to counter the lack of live music and opportunities for performance. With countless sources of inspiration for this EP, the most intriguing has to be the assortment of ambient nature sounds taken from multiple field recordings. By incorporating these into his tracks, Pete’s music is elevated to unique sonic realms of musical innovation.

When not engaged in creating his own work, Pete has also found time to collaborate with Mick Harrison from 90s indie punks Prolapse on his latest National Screen Service album, which will be released soon.
