Over the past few weeks, I’ve been listening to Peter Donegan‘s Superman EP. My first thought was, I really wish there were more songs, that’s a good thing. Peter is a great storyteller and the music is warm and inviting. He sings about family, friends, love and life, all of the things that matter to us. On the title track, Superman, I hear a little Thomas Rhett, and I have to think when listening to I’m Yours, that we would all be lucky if someone were writing this song about us.
Donegan grew up in a musical family. His dad was legendary skiffle singer, songwriter and musician, Lonnie Donegan, the King of Skiffle. You may be wondering, what’s skiffle? Think jazz, blues, and folk played with homemade or improvised instruments like washboards and jugs and then go check out his Spotify link, it’s super cool.
Growing up side stage, Peter Donegan always knew music was his path. A multi-instrumentalist, he plays guitar, banjo, keyboards, mandolin, and harmonica and his years of experience have all come together to bring us a pretty special recording.
Thanks to Donegan for taking the time to answer our questions about his life, his music and his new EP.
