Peter Bruntnell is a writer with rare and mysterious qualities. NME claimed that his "...records should be taught in schools..." and, if you ask the likes of Willy Vlautin, Jay Farrar, John Murry or Kathleen Edwards, they’ll all agree.
It all started in 1995 when Peter signed to Almo Sounds, where his label mates included Gillian Welch and Garbage. He made two albums for the label: 'Cannibal' and 'Camelot In Smithereens'. Grammy-winning Peter Smith (Sting/Squeeze), who produced the debut 'Cannibal', still cites it as “...one of the top 3 records I’ve worked on.”.
In 1999 Peter signed to Warner Brothers and released his biggest commercial success, ‘Normal For Bridgwater’, which won him wider acclaim in North America. Rather than continue to reproduce the Americana feel, Peter’s restless musical spirit has seen him strike out in a new direction with almost every subsequent album. His most recent 2017 release, 'Nos Da Comrade', still has a beauty and resonance that has rarely faltered in his twenty year recording career.
