The Third album from Alternative Folk songwriter Peter Doran

Album Review

"...eclectic batch of songs that mingles folk, alt-country and sonic rock in one heady mixture. Opener ‘Perfumed Letter’ channels Jeff Buckley’s ‘Grace’ with great aplomb. ‘Julia’ and ‘Kicking and Screaming’ showcase a voice located somewhere on the spectrum between David Gray and Ray Lamontagne" Shane Leahy, MusicReviewUnsigned.com

"Mullingar’s Peter Doran has been around for a while. His third album Ovehead The Stars marks a change of direction as it’s much more a full band affair than his previous two offerings. Recorded at the famed Grouse Lodge in his native Co. Westmeath, it boasts a big budget sound. The songs, meanwhile, vary in texture and approach, from the mid-tempo pop of ‘Perfumed Letter’ to the plaintive, chiming ‘Julia’ via full blown rocker ‘Out Of Here’. Doran’s appealing voice, which can hit an impressively high register, lies between Damien Rice and Glen Hansard. His songwriting approach is not dissimilar either. With ‘Falling Trees’, the album’s memorable closer, a particular highlight, this is an impressive outing"
