SABIAN is thrilled to welcome highly acclaimed multi-percussionist Pete Lockett to its artist family. As versatile as he is prolific, Lockett has collaborated with artists from an incredibly wide spectrum of musical cultures and tastes, from traditional Carnatic and Hindustani music of North and South India to traditional Japanese taiko drumming; from blues, funk and rock to classical, folk and ethnic and from Arabic to Electronic.
Lockett is well known for solo and collaborative work, having toured the world and released twenty solo/collaborative CDs. As a session player, the list of artists he has worked with is truly impressive, including Björk, Peter Gabriel, Bill Bruford, Jeff Beck, Vikku Vinayakram, Noel Gallagher, Selva Ganesh, Robert Plant, Ustad Zakir Hussain, The Verve, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Michael Nyman, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Dave Weckl, Phil Manzanera, Lee Scratch Perry, Primal Scream, Steve Smith, Rory Gallagher, Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Pet Shop Boys, Bikram Ghosh, Amaan & Ayaan Ali Khan, Amy Winehouse, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Youth of Killing Joke, and many, many more!
“It is great to be with a cymbal company whose diverse and eclectic range of cymbals and metallic percussion reflects my hybrid and multicultural musical approach. SABIAN offers an incredible array of choice that I feel perfectly reflects the eclectic nature of my playing in both the drum set and percussion world” – Pete Lockett.
“We have admired Pete for many years, so we are truly honoured that he has joined the SABIAN family. We look forward to our collaboration and providing him with inspiring sounds that reflect who he is as an artist as much as it does our commitment to his artistry” – Luis Cardoso, SABIAN.
