In 2011, Pete met French singer Séverine Casati who was also battling with the day-to-day monotony of a full-time job rather than fulfilling her love of music. Pete remembered promising Séverine that if, one day, he formally embarked on a music career, she would be the first person he would call to sing in his band. As chance would have it, three years later she indeed was the first person he contacted with regard to his new music project – Late Nite Cable.
Séverine Casati, who was born in Westfield, NJ, moved with her family back to France at the age of five. She was raised near Versailles, a suburb of Paris, where she began singing and expressing her love for music at the age of seven when she began piano lessons. Seduced by African-American music, Séverine's first inspiration was Louis Armstrong.
She studied classical music and jazz for 12 years in a conservatory of music where she also performed as a soloist beginning at age 10. Her influences are Portishead, The Cranberries, Radiohead, Muse, Nina Simone, Ben Harper, Jeff Buckley, Sting, Dido, Sixto Rodriguez, Amy Winehouse and Eddie Vedder.
After living in Mexico and Montreal where she continued singing in a number of folk and pop bands, Séverine finally settled down in New York City in 2011, which had been her dream venue since she was very young. As the founding members of Late Nite Cable, Pete and Séverine, along with their live band, plan to make a big splash in the synth pop and electronic pop market.
Equipped with an EP that will be released in September 2015 and with a few additional singles to be released soon thereafter, they plan to continue releasing a significant amount of content throughout the rest of 2015 and 2016.
