“A ridiculously strong, hauntingly beautiful debut from Peter. Truly unbelievable.”
One of the many quotes I could have taken from the very flattering review from the guys over at ChordBlossom which you can check out here: http://www.chordblossom.com/musicreviews/peter-mcveigh-pm
Haven taken a wee break from Social media its nice to still be able to come across what people are saying about the Album. It’s actually nicer to not be finding it on your stream, someone came up to me today when I was walking to work and said they’d read the review and subsequently went to check out the album.
The Album launch went ridiculously well, I don’t think I’ve ever felt as comfortable vocally on stage. Considering like any normal person there was a bit of tension in the air before the show & during sound check it went superbly well. The reviews & feedback from it have also been fantastic! I was talking to an ex-band mate today about how far it’s all come and developed & although ‘PM’ is a debut Album it’s probably an Album 10 years in the making. It was executed over 3 – 4 months but everything I’ve learnt, written about and developed appeared on the Album. It doesn’t feel like a debut to me either. It feels like something that has evolved over a career. It’s typically been a live career, I’ve not been fantastic at documenting it until these past 2 – 3 years.
If you’ve not already checked out the Album please do so. I’m exceptionally proud of it & people seem to be enjoying it… I’m off to Spain in a week, then off to Belgium for a show, then over the board into the Netherlands for 2 more shows before coming back for a few Irish shows. Check it out on itunes, amazon or over at http://www.petermcveigh.com/store
I’m gonna be organising a night in Belfast in a few months a small intimate show with a few friends bands. So get on learning the words so you can come fulfil another dream of mine lol Singing along at a show! #mememememe #narcissism
BTW I’ve been off Social media for 2 weeks now and I have to say I highly recommend taking a break… my head is so clear. In a very selfish way, I don’t know the worlds problems, I don’t know all of the gripes my friends have & I have a clear head to write down some melodies and lyrics. I’ve been very prolific over the past few weeks and I hope it continues.
I hope you’re enjoying your social media break from me!
I’ll be back soon!
