Birds of Relocation by Eric Peters

| |

The first thing that grabs you about Birds of Relocation, independent artist Eric Peters’s seventh solo album, involves the title itself. Birds of Relocation essentially says goodbye to the difficult past and hello to what’s on the horizon. This reflective record offers hope. The music is generally light and inviting; the lyrics are deep and make you ponder. Peters begins with the song “The Old Year (of Denial)” and eventually progresses to anticipation with the tenth track, “The New Year.” The record ends with “Fighting for Life”—a pep talk in the form of a song. An interesting side note regarding the CD cover: it’s Peters’s original painting depicting birds in flight. (Catapult Records)
