The Flying Saucer Club proudly welcomes back to its stage Peter Cupples as he launches his latest album Observations this October. Cupples began his career as the singer/songwriter for Motown band Stylus in the mid ‘’70s.

Over the last decade, Peter has toured both solo and with Stylus, and with his close friend, the late Jon English. Their collaborative show, ‘Uncorked’, filled with nostalgia and good humoured banter, delighted audiences everywhere throughout Australia.

His latest album, ‘Observations’, which he describes as ‘a collection of songs that look at the heart of our everyday existence, some personal, some not’ is due for release in early November.

‘I am extremely proud of this album,’ says Cupples. ‘I truly believe it is probably the best thing I’’ve ever done.’

PETER CUPPLES is the former lead singer and songwriter of ‘STYLUS’ – the Australian blue-eyed soul band who became the first ‘all white band’ to be signed by the US Motown label, Tamala.

Peter first came to prominence with Stylus in 1975, releasing four albums with hits such as ‘Summer Breeze’ and ‘World of Make Believe’ before the band split in 1980.

A successful solo career followed throughout the ’80’s, with a top 20 hit for his first release, ‘Fear of Thunder’, and success with the song ‘Blame it on the Weather’ – not only for Peter but also for John Farnham, whose voice, incidentally, Peter’s soaring vocals are often compared to. He also became a regular on TV shows such as The Midday Show, Hey Hey It’s Saturday, Tonight Live, and Carols by Candlelight at the Myer Music Bowl.

Other albums released since include ‘Still Alive’ (with Stylus); ‘Bac2basix’ – a roots album filled with wonderful storytelling songs such as ‘Pioneers’, ‘Family’ and the ‘Poor Man’s Al Jolson; a jazz standards album ‘About Time’; and ‘Home Grown’ – Peter’s own tribute to some of his favourite Aussie artists.

Over the last decade, Peter has toured both solo and with Stylus, and with his close friend, the late Jon English. Their collaborative show, ‘Uncorked’, filled with nostalgia and good humoured banter, delighted audiences everywhere throughout Australia.

Peter works with many charities and has written songs for the ‘Make a Wish Foundation’ and the ‘Sacred Heart Foundation’
