Peter Burg has been known regionally as a singer and songwriter and performs regularly with his original blues band Peter Burg & Blue Suburban. They have been heard on radio and have performed at many festivals and venues throughout Colorado. This time Peter has embarked on a solo venture with his latest release, Dizzy Light.
Using the blues as a stepping stone, Peter deals with his particular frailties in the search concerning spiritual awakening, faith, and moral consequence. Blues is not exclusive here. From his musical history he has drawn snippets from jug and string bands, rural country flavors, simple gospel, and primitive beats and brought them together into what is undoubtedly Peter’s best recorded work to date. Dizzy Light initially began as a purely acoustic project but rapidly grew in complexity with the addition of further instrumentation as period or cultural ambiance was needed. As Peter drew on several friends to add their own talents, he remarked “The studio is a canvass on which an idea can be worked out using a store house of colors to indulge one’s imagination. The trick is not to get too carried away and lose the edge, focus and direction.” The goal here was to capture a feeling often missed by large commercial studios and labels with their high production quotas.
Dizzy Light features Peter Burg on acoustic and electric guitar, bass, mandolin, harmonica, dulcimer, recorder, tenor banjo, and percussion with the sounds of Rick Terlep on slide guitar, Bruce Paulman on harmonica, David Gouge on accordion, James Schafer on violin, and Danny Weston on drums. Dizzy Light was produced by Richard M. Holmes and Peter Burg and was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Richard M. Holmes at Amplimedia Production Studios, Pueblo, CO
