Peter Donegan, son of late “Godfather of British Rock n Roll” Lonnie Donegan, has music running through his veins with an inevitable strong passion towards Country music in particular. His sound is authentic and inimitable and his outstanding songwriting skills are able to captivate listeners of all stylistic preferences. His latest hit song “Superman” does not only showcase these skills but also features a raw heartfelt performance quality and a clear sound that can communicate musical ideas effectively. The chorus section for this song is also able to create a very lasting impression, with higher melodies and interesting rhythmic choices as well as an instrumental background that complements these elements perfectly.
With a consistent vocal tone quality exploring shapely singable melodies using a variety of colours as well as a very effective instrumental arrangement which constantly propels the music forward, the song is intelligently crafted and performed. Another aspect of the song which makes it feel so raw and natural is it’s ability to evoke the sensation that the music is being experienced live in concert. With changes in texture that sustain interest throughout, a balanced Country style instrumentation that keeps growing and singable melodies that form uplifting choruses, the song truly shows how great Peter Donegan’s songwriting skills truly are. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed!
