Taken from “II”, second album by Swedish songwriter Peter Thisell, out now on Rootsy Records.
Lay here and listen to the sound of a soul laid bare in song. This is Thisell – a singer, songwriter, traveler, father, partner, son.
Supported by a cast of talented friends, Thisell’s music invites the listener on a sweeping journey through cinematic soundscapes, where elements of traditional Swedish folk songs echo in an atmosphere of dark Americana. This is music that transcends time and cultures, revealing the human experience through layers of sound, thought and feeling. The lyrics give form to Thisell’s inner life through observations of the outer world, outlining tiny moments with large brushstrokes, which the band sympathetically illustrates in lush color.
“Black Bird” is featured as the current “single of the week” of the radio show L’Attimo Fuggente.
