The Voodoo Rooms

Peter has a unique ‘way with a tune’. The most interesting thing about his music, and part of the reason for his devoted following, is the indefinable knack the songs have of locking into one’s emotions in an elusive, intangible but deeply affecting way. In fact, respected journalist Keith Cameron once claimed in NME that “Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools” such is the particular appeal of the quiet Devonian’s songwriting craft.

The Guardian declared that Peter’s music “really is exceptional – a canon of classically constructed, melodically rich, lyrically ingenious and emotionally, intellectually affecting songs that bears comparison with the all-time greats” and signed off by saying that “as a writer, he has few real peers”.

Peter will take to the road with a trio comprising himself on acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals, and accompanied by Danny Williams (ex- Black Grape and St. Etienne) on double bass, and one of Scotland’s most ‘in-demand’ musicians, Iain Sloan (of The Wynntown Marshals and Blue Rose Code) on pedal steel, guitar and backing vocals.
