CD Review: Peter Himmelman Brings Us New Music By "The Boat That Carries Us"

American singer/songwriter Peter Himmelman returns with his 12th studio album entitled "The Boat That Carries Us." It will be released on July 15 through his own record label, Himmasongs Recordings. Peter Himmelman enlisted the help of some very talented special musicians like Jim Keltner (drums), Lee Sklar (bass), David Steele (guitar) and Will Gramling (keys) for this amazing new album.

The new thirteen song release begins with the acoustic strumming of the title song as we ease into the musical world of Peter Himmelman. The tempo picks up for the rocking boogie-shuffle of "Afraid To Lose" and Peter's lyrics have your ears glued to his story during "Green Mexican Dreams." He returns to his folk-styling on the slow-moving "Mercy On The Desolate Road" as his words become more powerful than the music. The album's hardest rocking song is the rhythm-fueled "Angels Die," before he brings the melody down for the piano blues of "Tuck It Away." The album closes with how it all began with the acoustic strumming of the gospel-like, sing-along chorus of "Hotter Brighter Sun."
