New Peter Tigchelaar CD: More Like Lightning

More Like Lightning, the newest album from local singer songwriter, Peter Tigchelaar, is like a journey within a CD.

With its pop-folk sound plus the lyrical allusions to blues and honkytonks there's an unmistakable sense of home.

Despite those homey roots, the sound does have a bit of a world flavour and offers the listener the feel of an exotic, warm-inviting cafe performance.  Ukelele, viola, glockenspiel, accordion, cellos and more add to the international atmosphere.

The spiritual lyrics also provide a journey that goes beyond the physical.  This disc will see your mind travelling outward and inward (occasionally at the same time).

More Like Lightning earned a Hamilton Music Award nomination last year for Religious Recording.

Peter's fellow travellers on the CD include Harrison Kennedy & Cheryl Tigchelaar (backing vocals), Ron Cole (accordion), James Hill & Mike Donnely (ukeleles), Andrew Tigchelaar (bass), Tone Valcic (percussion), and Anne Janelle (cello, viola & cello banjo).

The album is available through Peter's website as a psycical CD and download.
