Peter's first studio solo album 'SHINE' contains 16 self penned acoustic numbers.Whilst most of the music was specifically written and recorded for this solo project there are a number of tracks that started life during the sesions for the 2003 Cold Flame album - The Seven Seas most notably Witness, Painted Silver, Medicine Man and Waste of You.With Peter playing mainly acoustic guitar and flute as well as singing he descibes the material as a collection of contempory folk songs exploring human political and spiritual issues.The title track Shine is dedicated to the memory of Iraqi hostage Ken Bigley whilst other songs explore spiritual leanings towards new age and Buddhist thinking,as well as more materialistic western values.
As an explaination of Peter's song writing creativity he cites the following To follow an absolute belief in the power of the modern song in its true beauty, as musical _expression combined in poetry, integrated into a pure spiritual,emotional and human experience. The ebullient frontman has also designed his own website to promote the solo album and some solo gigs that he intends to perform later in the year.
Like all other Cold Flame releases Shine will be available at all gigs or direct from the band via email or the website Shop.
