Peter Hume (born Peter Elisha Cobbe, 4 September 1985) is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and art director; from Whangaparaoa, New Zealand. Hume is the middle of three brothers (with Dann Hume and Jon Hume) who make up the multi-platinum award winning band Evermore.[1][2] Hume has contributed to songs for Evermore and also sung lead vocals on some of the band's album tracks. In 2008, Hume was shortlisted for the Cleo Bachelor of the Year award.[3]

Early life[edit]

Born Peter Elisha Cobbe, Peter is the middle brother of the Hume family. Alongside brothers Jon and Dann they formed Evermore in Feilding in 1999.[1][2] Hume attended Red Beach Primary School until the age of 9, after which, he and his brothers became home schooled by their mother.[4][5]

Peter played inter-club tennis and had a great passion for colouring-in competitions along with his younger brother Dann Hume. Unfortunately his career as a colouring-in champion was cut short due to a scandal of adults believing the artwork was created by someone much older.

The Hume brothers then moved to Australia; after the band received airplay on Triple J's 'Home and Hosed' in 2002.

Evermore (1999-Present)[edit]

Hume has contributed to Evermore songs such as 'Hero', 'Come to Nothing', 'For One Day', 'Between the Lines', 'Follow The Sun' and 'It's Too Late'[6][7][8][9][10][11] and also sung on Evermore album tracks including 'Morning Star', 'That's The Way', 'Dreaming... Pt.2', 'Broken Glass', 'Inside Of Me', 'Haunted', and 'It's Only Love'.

As part of Evermore, Hume plays bass guitar, keyboards, piano, ukulele, mandolin, guitar and vocals.

He also contributes artwork, photography, graphic design and cinematography to the band's albums, music videos and other promotional material.[1][2]

Other Projects[edit]

Hume is currently working on a solo project, Peter Sonic & The Temple Builders, with musicians Luke J Evans (guitar), Josh Milgate (bass) and Stefan Linares (drums/percussion).[12][13] While the project is in production, the band are "documenting the procrastination process" which involves their love of food, coffee, cocktails and how-to's on their blog 'This is a Quiet Man'.[14]
