Peter Cox is the vocalist and front man of Go West. The duo won the ‘Best New Artist’ Brit Award in 1986. Their debut album included four top 20 singles and remained in the U.K. chart for over a year. With their iconic, signature keyboard riffs, Go West had a stream of hits in the U.K. and the U.S.A. during the 80s and 90s with singles such as ‘We Close Our Eyes’, ‘Call Me’, ‘Goodbye Girl’, ‘Don’t Look Down’ and ‘Faithful’. They are also known for their multi-award-winning song ‘The King Of Wishful Thinking’ from the soundtrack to the film ‘Pretty Woman’. Peter’s eponymous Chrysalis Records solo album, released in 1997, included the singles ‘Ain’t Gonna Cry Again’, If You Walk Away’ and ‘What A Fool Believes’, all of which made the U.K. top 40. Peter is back with a brand new album. Produced by Gary Stevenson (Go West, Rick Astley) and John Mitchell (Enter Shikari, It Bites, Frost, Arena), the sound is an unmistakable mix of Peter’s unique, distinct vocals and superb song-writing skills. The first two singles from the album, ‘Too Far Gone’ and ‘She Wants Magic’, both reached #1 on The Heritage Chart
