SEVENTH EXIT – Peter Bugden and Chris Lok
Seventh Exit is an acoustic roots project, started by Peter Bugden and Chris Lok in 2014 that features mostly original material peppered with a few special covers that showcase their acoustic roots and blues style and vision.
Peter is originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, where his first guitar was picked out by Jim Henman, a founding member of April Wine. After a few years, he ended up as a singer/song writer playing solo and in duos around the city. He co-founded and fronted a jump blues band called the Floorboards where he shared the stage with the likes of Jeff Healy, Carson Downey and the Joe Murphy Blues Band. He then took time to raise a family and develop a technical career which took him to Europe as well as the bottom of the Arctic Ocean in a three man submarine. In there somewhere was a move to Ottawa, Ontario where he now resides.
A love of music and performing could not be held down forever. After joining several song writing circles, Peter started performing as a singer/song writer yet again. He has been invited to several writer’s show cases around the city to present his material and the story continues. Current projects include a fledgling roots band called Seventh Exit and an audio production company utilizing his home studio where he works on producing demos and other sundry projects for local song writers. Peter plays guitar, bass, slide guitar, mandolin, ukulele and is a drum and synthesiser programmer.
Chris hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, where his first guitar was picked out by his mom. She, alas, was not much of a musician and, as Chris soon discovered, his new steel stringed acquisition – with its 1 inch action – was more an instrument of torture than one to make music with. Nonetheless, he persevered and at the ripe old age of 12, in Cairo Egypt, he had his first gig. He continued to play in various rock and folk groups throughout his teens and into his early 20′s.
As he raised his own family, and pursued a profession which took him to all corners of Canada, Europe and Asia, music took a back seat. But eventually the call of the muse grew too strong and he began performing again as a solo artist in Vancouver. After moving to Ottawa he began writing and performing his own material and developing his skills in digital audio recording. It was there that he and Pete crossed paths. After accompanying each other at a few gigs, they launched Seventh Exit. Chris plays acoustic guitar, resonator guitar, Weissenborn-style slide guitar and mandolin.
