The guitar playing comes to the forefront on the first two, exceptional tracks ‘Sweet On Me’ and ‘Run,Run, Sylvie’ off his second CD “Etherised.”
He dials down the tempo on the third track ‘Angels/Demons’ which is still touching and more pop flavoured than the first two more folk-bluegrass influenced tracks.
Things get even slower on ‘Winter’s Day’ and the title track ‘Etherised,’ but Peters picks up the tempo on the catchy Joel Plaskett style pop number ‘The Trial.’
‘Judgement Day,’ as a little bit of a reggae feel and a catchy melody.
The CD ends on an upbeat steel guitar powered country number ‘Yvette’s Song’
Throughout, Peters displays an appealing tenor voice along the lines of Joel Plaskett and plays a variety of upbeat, pop/ folk songs which even have Celtic feel to them.
it is a pleasant listen especially how the first two up tempo tracks draw the listener into the music.
