Album Notes
Track one kicks off with the authentic 1947 Low-fi Roswell radio broadcast that shocked the world. A UFO crashes to earth giving us the Transistor and the airwaves explode! Well received by music critics, this alt/ pop rock has a sense of adventure through the tracks. Acoustic roots songwriting in this dynamic tour through tech enslavement, precision warfare and the quest for sodality.

"....recorded in the city of champions and the result is a collection of soulful originals with melodies and rythms second to none."
"It starts as a journey of six songs that provoke inner emotion and is full of heart,soul and potential. Peter's precision in the studio has created a number of tracks as good as any on the airwaves today..."
"it's forged with everything from alternative rock to folk and the albums honesty stands alone."

--Dan Brisebois, Canadianbands.com

"I got Transistor and I really like it. Thanks so much and it's been getting played every week on my show......Keep doing your thing!"

--Ryan Delehunt,WSHL Northeaston,MA

"The opening track, "lunar man" begins with a pseudo radio report of the roswell UFO incident that reminds us of Major Tom's close encounter... Peter's vocals have a breathy quality to them affected to sound slightly derranged and his performance in the lower baritone register reminds us of Crash Test Dummies. Solid indie release and we look forward to more."


"his vocals are as deep as Jim Morrison's, even nearing Crash Test Dummies proportions with a bit of Leonard Cohen's sing-speak rumble poking through. A great display,"Transistor" is very encouraging as to Peter's future outings, which will hopefully include even more adventurous full-lenths."

--Jaclyn Arndt, Soul Shine Magazine

"We immediately popped it in the boom box here at STWHQ and turned up the decibels. Loved the start of (and the rest of)Lunar Man, how could we not! We must say though that everyone here seemed to find an affinity for the tune Higher ground as well.... sending our best for your music endevours, we will enjoy your music here for quite some time!"

--V2/Spread the Word

"....Great Music! "

Great Canadian Music!
I do a weekly independent music podcast called The Great American Music Hour (available on itunes) and have been playing a lot of this album lately. It's "Canadiana,"or Americana music made by Canadians. "Lunar Man" is particularly interesting (something about aliens, Roswell , etc.),but they are all equally interesting, reminding me of a cross between Bare Naked Ladies and Crash Test Dummies. If you like good music, check this out.
