Peter Parsons is an English musician. He is associated with the Brexit music scene, and recorded 12 songs. He exhibited and performed his works on YouTube, often combining his vocal talent, and dancing into one location.

The New European described him as a "enterprising elderly warbler"[1], the I newspaper called him a "Brexit enthusiast".[2]


Little is known about Parsons before he surfaced online in 2010 - releasing his first song entitled 'Geordie Land'. He claims this to be an adapted version of a song, originally written by his mother - who was raised in Jesmond, Newcastle.[3]

Soon thereafter, he released a follow-up - entitled 'The Geordies on the March'. He followed this up with another adaptation of one of his mother's songs - this time entitled ' Backwaters' - written about his hometown of Sunbury-on-Thames.[4]

In 2012, Parsons released two new songs - in conjuction with the 2012 London Olympics. His covers of 'Nessun Dorma' and 'Ave Maria' were taken from a prepared ventriloquist act, where he sings with a duo of ventriloquist dummies.[5]

His original song 'Gone to the Dogs' was then released in August 2014 - a track written about punters at a greyhound track. 'Let's Go Go Go (The Racehorse Song)' follows a similar theme and tune to 'Gone to the Dogs' - instead applied to horse racing 2 years on.

Peter has also released a number of Christmas songs - first with 'Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho It's Christmas Day' in 2014, inspired by Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. [6] This was then followed by 2017's 'A Dog on Christmas Day' - focusing on the iconic trope of receiving a dog as a Christmas present.

Parsons' biggest success came with 2017's 'The Brexit Song (We'll Be Strong)'. Receiving upwards of 40,000 views [7], it is Parsons' most viewed video - receiving mainstream coverage from The New European and the I newspaper.
