NME claimed that 'Peter Bruntnell's records should be taught in schools' and if you ask the likes of Rumer, Peter Buck, Scott Mccaughey, Willy Vlautin, Jay Farrar, John Murry or Kathleen Edwards they'll all agree that Peter Bruntnell is a writer with rare and mysterious qualities. It's interesting that American musicians are so seduced by such a uniquely British artist, and Peter has toured extensively with Son Volt, Kathleen Edwards and Richmond Fontaine.

It all started back 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 imprint, Slowriver/ Rykodisc and released 'Normal For Bridgwater'. This was to be his biggest commercial success and a record that won him wider acclaim in North America. But rather than reproduce the Americana feel of Normal For Bridgwater, Peter's restless musical spirit has seen him strike out in new direction with almost every subsequent album, continuing to win him admirers. By 2005, The Independent were calling him 'one of the finest songwriters in Britain' and Richmond Fontaine's front man Willy Vlautin called him his favourite singer.

With his new album, 'Nos Da Comrade', which features lead single 'Mr Sunshine', a rollicking deconstruction of a certain US presidential candidate and a golf course that destroyed a Scottish fishing community, getting rave reviews from across the music press, now is the time to catch one of our greatest singer songwriters.
