An Instrument of His Love – Rev. Peter Unger (reviewed by Dave Franklin)

1451504004_peter2I have probably said it before when talking about Peter’s music; such openly devotional messages are not always my thing. That’s the wonderful and odd facet of music really, it normally comes from a very specific and personal place, is broadcast into the world via mass media but lands again on the listener in a very one on one and specific way. But take a step back and focus less on the lyrics and more on the sentiment and what you have is a finely wrought love song and everyone has room for one of those in their life. Right?

Once you get beyond its very personal message, you find yourself in the realms of the timeless, stripped back, acoustic troubadour, swap the church hall for the coffee shop, the congregation for music punters and you could almost be in the hands of the likes of James Taylor. Light, deft and dexterous playing, crisp and confident delivery, well defined and poetic message…all boxes ticked really.
