Peter Boyd has been a songwriter for over thirty years. Drawing on gospel and blues from Chicago all the way back to the Delta and re-invented upside-down-and-backwards, Peter’s songs are a sepia-tinged glimpse into his messy, not-fully-developed soul where faith has as much a chance as folly to send you careening into the abyss.
Peter’s new CD ‘Beulahland’ is garnering great reviews, most recently a rave from Greg Quill in the Toronto Star – “stunning and powerful blues-rooted original songs and astonishing guitar wizardry. Among the best of the year’s roots/blues crop.”
