“The music of Silvertortoise creates a beautiful space to let go of worldly worries
and touch something transcendent.” - MC Xander
Pete Mills (aka Silvertortoise) began playing piano at age 6.
He records and performs using an unusual technique - no two takes are ever the same, and new parts spontaneously emerge in the moment. This makes each of his performances completely unique, and an expression of everything which is occurring at that moment. The audience is taken on a journey, of sublime harmonies, soaring melodies, delicate emotive moments of nostalgia, and uplifting euphoria.
Containing the work and life experience of the past 28 years of his life, his two solo piano albums 'Mira' and 'Air' are loved by people all over the world.
Pete has worked with artists as diverse as Hang Massive, DJ Krust, Paul Oakenfold, Tristan, Giolì, Bollywood legend KK, world-renowned beatboxer and multi-vocalist MC Xander, and dubstep genius Culprate. His compositions and session work total more than 3.5 million views on YouTube and 3 million streams on Spotify.
