Peter Bruntnell is finally touring the new album ‘Journey to the Sun‘ released in June this year through his label Domestico Records. ‘Journey to the Sun‘ is the 12th album from the most industry-ignored artist ever to grace Americana UK listener’s choice. Guardian calls him a “cult hero“, Rolling Stone has named him “One of England’s best kept musical secrets“, and NME claimed that “Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools“.
Reviewer Lyndon Bolton writes of the album, “Peter Bruntnell offers profoundly contemplative, lucid songwriting that is melodically rich and beautifully produced. If anyone can capture the isolation and introspection brought about by months of lockdown Bruntnell can.”
Americana UK was lucky enough to enjoy his tour last year, and reporter Paul Kerr writes of the experience “offering the crowd some fine bon mots regarding the songs and some of his past misdemeanours and travails, this was Peter Bruntnell on top form. The audience were entranced throughout as the trio played these exceptional songs in an exceptional manner.“. This tour includes only eight dates in small venues – advance tickets recommended.
