Throwback Thursday - I just found this golden oldie! I can’t believe how little my girl was. 👶 ❤️
When the worship set is coming to an end... *internal monologue* "Think of something smart to say. THINK OF SOMETHING SMART TO SAY!!!" 🎸 Thanks @the_real_james_stevens for the excellent/accurate caption 😂😂 📷 @thec3_church
Bet you wish you were as cool as these guys 😎 and you can be! These Pyramid Park hoodies are available now in the PP shop - check the link in the bio for all the infooo ⬆️⬆️
Sunday Reflection There’s a book in the Bible called Jeremiah. I’ve tended to view this as quite a heavy book to read, but to my surprise revisiting this book I’ve seen some beautiful gems. Here is one “Blessed is the person who trusts in the Lord, Whose trust in the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, That sends out its roots by the stream, And does not fear when heat comes, For its leaves remain green, And is not anxious in the year of drought, For it does not cease to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17: 7 - 8 I had to double check there wasn’t a typo when re reading. It seems like Jeremiah needed to give double emphasis to one word...TRUST. I wonder how many times my heart and mind deviate from trust in God. It is a constant re focus. A running towards His ways over my ways. The earlier verses (Jeremiah 17: 5 - 6) walks us through what happens to those who do not trust God. The imagery is stark...shrub in a desert verses roots by the stream. However hard it might be to trust again and again, I want to encourage you (and myself) to take that simple seed of faith and trust God today, regardless of your circumstances. And who knows what God will do?!
Throwback to days spent hanging out in the studio with @chrispaveymastering 🎶 I can’t wait to get back to working on some new things this year!
BIG NEWS We have just hit 1000 FOLLOWERS on Spotify! This is massive - we’ve been excited to see our songs on some of the official Spotify playlists this year, and things are looking really great 😀
Want to hear some songs I’ve been working on? I’ve posted three “work in progress” songs on this weeks vlog. Watch the full version on my @youtube channel to hear it all (link in bio ⬆️⬆️) Oh, and please subscribe if you haven’t already...it really makes a difference 😁
Repost @thec3_church — Sunday was fun! This week I’m working hard to finish off some projects before I go on holiday next week – I’m looking forward to getting some sun in New Zealand for a little while! More on that soon :-)
It’s the first Sunday of the New Year. Usually I like to post about what I am doing (often being in church or leading worship). This year I’d like to share a little deeper. It’s easy to hide behind pictures and comments about the latest gig/ recording session/ songwriting day etc. However, the thing that directs and drives me in life is my faith in Jesus Christ. Every day I start my mornings in prayer, reflection, worship or studying the holy bible. Sometimes these are a few interrupted minutes, occasionally it’s an hour or more. But this has, and I trust always be, the core of who I am...a man living in relationship with Christ. • So, each Sunday I want to share something I’ve been pondering during these times. • This week I have been considering peace. I’m the kind of guy that loves goals and to go hard at life (especially when it’s a New Year) or season. But I am realising that because I am that type of person, I need more of what I’m not. Peace speaks to me about being in the moment. Treasuring the seconds we live right now. Peace comes from the Prince of Peace. And so if I am to be more like Christ, I must learn what it is to truly be at rest, to fight for stillness amongst the noise. • A verse I read this morning says “Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the Lord.” Psalm 107:43 • Perhaps in the opening of my heart to peace I first need to consider the height, length and width of the love of God. And as I do this I believe peace will begin to permeate my being. Let’s today consider the love of God, take time to churn it around our heads until we are more aware of His goodness.
“We live in an age now when anyone can make music - but the real essence of a track comes out in mastering” • I’ve just shared a great throwback vlog on our Facebook page: we spent some time with Chris from @chrispaveymastering and we chatted all things music, recording and mastering. There are some great thoughts here - head over to our Facebook page or have a look at the YouTube channel to check it out!
Thanks to Anniek, who sent through this photo of our set at Graceland in the summer. Bring on the sunshine!
Hey everyone! It’s the Pyramid Park New Year Vlog. Take a watch and find out some of my goals for 2019. (Full version on our YouTube channel...link in bio).
En la mira: @1pyramidpark El sonido indie de esta banda se destacó entre las novedades musicales del 2018. Aunque ya tenían cierta trayectoria musical, se dieron a conocer con “The Unexplained” Esperamos conocer más de ellos en el nuevo año.
Hey, new Instagram friends! My name is Pete, and I head up this collective, based in Cambridge — we are Pyramid Park! Did you know that we also have a Facebook page, a Twitter and a YouTube channel? You can find us @1pyramidpark or by searching for Pyramid Park- come and say hi!
2018, you have been a treat. Played the festivals, created and released a fantastic music video, put together a vlog every week, travelled to some incredible places and got involved with some fantastic projects. I’m so thankful for everyone who has been along for the ride - see you in 2019!
Still enjoying the Christmas chill vibes 👌🏻creative friends - how have you been doing over the Christmas period? Have you been working on anything new?
🔟 Highlights of 2018... a big thank you to everyone who has been part of the journey. This is the last vlog of the year up now on our @youtube channel. Take a look and please hit subscribe, it really helps (link in bio)
This is your Boxing Day reminder that while you’re weighed down with turkey, you can find the full album on our YouTube channel, along with lots of acoustic videos and behind the scenes vlogs. Head over and subscribe!
I’ve created a new playlist on Spotify, it’s called Driving Through The Night. Often I find myself driving through the night on the way back from a gig. Sometimes it’s a lonely time, but also special to have the silence after a lot of noise. Take a listen and check out a bunch of independent artists as well (I’ve tried to include as many as possible).
BIG THANKS to @spotify for adding our song “Lead Me - acoustic version” to the playlist Mew Music Friday Christian. It’s also 7th on the playlist, which is pretty good ✅ Recommend listening to the whole playlist if you get a chance. PS this is not a pic of me, it’s the one and only @patbarrett
This week: Team Pyramid Park Christmas (burger) lunch to finish off the term, occasionally stopping to look at busses going past the window (for Lilja, not Heather) 🍔
Have you checked out the acoustic version of Lead Me that we dropped earlier? Spotify is the place to go! ⬆️⬆️ 📷 @elijahpantino
S U P R I S E ! We’ve just released the acoustic live version of “Lead Me” on Spotify (and all other streaming sites) TODAY! Head over to our Spotify profile and take a listen/ follow 🥳. 📸@philhearing
So far this week - I’ve been in Portsmouth, working on a super cool filming project. Watch this space! 🎥
Mornings in this season are for songwriting- and at the moment, that looks like working through a lot of these! It’s one of the slower parts of the creative process, but I’m really enjoying putting down a few seeds and seeing what grows 🌱
New Vlog up now, all about this new season in the life of Pyramid Park. Find out the latest by watching the full video on our @youtube channel. Hit the bio link to take you there ⬆️
Here’s our #topnine2018 - of course, Lilja is the one who is so popular that she’s made it in three times! I love this, and all the moments it represents - playing the festivals in the summer, touring around the UK, seeing Vulnerability pop up in a record shop, and filming and releasing the Born to be Brave video - thanks for coming along for the ride!
Thanks to @kingsstock for the great photo and the kind words - I’m wishing I was back in the sunshine, playing on one of our favourite stages with our home crowd. ☀️
You came to the last night of our U.K. tour? No? Well we filmed you a special Vlog all it. We also made it our first ever Pyramid Park Christmas party. Thanks everyone who came out for the night. Head to our @youtube channel to watch it (link in bio ⬆️)
It feels so good to be back in the studio and giving some quality time to song writing. Been touring so much that I’ve forgotten what it’s like to write. So grateful for this space! It’s an odd feeling, but we are definitely moving from one season into the next - we’re working on some different things and 2019 will look very different. I’ll be doing a Facebook Live THIS FRIDAY at 1pm, to chat about what I’m up to next - keep an eye on the Facebook page 1pm on Friday ⭐️
Team Tuesday: Meet Matt • To mark the BTBB video getting to number 2 on the Christian Music chart (wooohooo!), I wanted to honour some of the brilliant people who helped to make it happen. Meet Matt: • Matt is the man who took 1,000’s of still pictures throughout the day and then edited the footage to become what it is today. His main job was pressing a button for each frame of the video, but it went much further than that, helping shape the video into a finished product that we were so proud of. • I’ve loved working with Matt on this project, and a few different shoots before- he’s a real professional and he doesn’t stop until it’s as good as it can be. Thanks for everything Matt!
Hey @ryanbakerbarnes and @revival_creative thanks for the album and notepad! Love it! Go check these guys out and their new album 👊🏻
HELLOOOOO CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY • • We’ve got a massive Christmas giveaway going on on the Facebook page right now. Head on over to have a look - search for Pyramid Park to find us 👍🏻👍🏻

"Graceland Festival is one of the most creative festivals I have been to. It enables artists from theatre to classical music to fine art to have the chance to showcase their talent. (...) There is something in Graceland for everyone, and space just to be present and let the world go by with a community of people who are very accepting.." Thanks Pete, it was great to have you! ♥️ @1pyramidpark #glf2018 #throwbacktime #graceland2018 #gracelandfestival #pyramidpark #testimonial #terugkijken #nagenieten #zonnehal #muziek #artist
A video in which I say the words “free drinks”, “Christmas games” and @dance_like_kings in one sentence... Cambridge, why would you miss out on this?! This Saturday is coming up quick - click through to the website from the bio for tickets!
Team Tuesday: Meet Hamish • To mark the BTBB video getting to number 2 on the Christian Music chart (wooohooo!), I wanted to honour some of the brilliant people who helped to make it happen. Meet Hamish (with his hands in the air, like he just don’t care): • Hamish was the director for the BTBB shoot: without him, we could not have pulled any of this crazy idea off. Hamish was meticulous with every detail and pushed us to create a video that we are truly proud of. He has given so much time, energy and passion to the project - from working out the maths of every move through to taking my initial ideas and making them 10x better. What a hero!
I am super excited to be leading worship with my home church today! Cambridge friends, if you haven’t got your tickets for Saturday yet, hunt me down this morning - I’ve got some with your name on! If I won’t see you today, then the link in the bio is the place to go! 🙌🏻⬆️ 📷 @thec3_church
