"CD Broad Road Revue"

Soundbites - June 19, 2010
I’ve often marvelled at the quality and quantity of musical talent in our tiny province. I have had the opportunity to listen to several Island artists over the years, all of them good, but few have impressed me quite as much as Peter MacDougall.
A native of St. Peter’s, MacDougall has two previous albums: Something that You Wanted and Pour Out Your Spirit. He compiled several of his favourite tunes from those two CDs and travelled to Nashville last year to re-record eleven tracks, plus one new title. The end result of this is a powerful country-gospel CD, Broad Road.
One of my favourite songs, No Standing in Line, reminded me of how often we stand in lines at checkouts or in other situations. However, as MacDougall reminds us, "There’s no standing in line to talk to Jesus." Save Them Lord, the album’s only brand-new song, was inspired by a testimony of Evel Kenievel on the Robert Schuller program, The Hour of Power. Mr. MacDougall has included this testimony in a video clip on his myspace page:
Does Your God? is a song that was written as an address to the pilots who smashed the planes into the twin towers on 9/11: "Does your God walk on water? Does your God turn the other cheek? ....Come to Jesus, He’ll forgive."
Throughout the album, MacDougall demonstrates his heart. Titles include topics on prayer (Prayer in the Name), evangelism (One by One), heaven (Walk Right Up) and forgiveness and praise (I Want to Praise). MacDougall uses catchy melodies to reach out to his listeners, and he hooks them in to listen to his message.
Producer Robert Jason summed up the heart of this Islander: "Rare indeed is the songwriter whose every composition is so beautifully realized, both lyrically and musically. Peter MacDougall is indeed that rare songwriter. On top of this, Peter’s artistry is that of a committed Christian, every song delivered with passion, humanity, and yes, a wry sense of humour when needed."
If you want to hear this talent Islander, head down to the Charlottetown waterfront on Canada. Peter MacDougall will be performing a half-hour set with the Tim Chaisson band at 4:15 that is sure to be enjoyable and uplifting.. - Soundbites - The Guardian


Still working on that hot first release.



Peter MacDougall was born and raised in Prince Edward Island, Canada. His love for music was always evident, but his passion for singing became clear after hearing songs like "Hey Jude" and "Let it Be" by the Beatles in the late 60's and early 70's. Other artists like John Fogarty, Willie Nelson and The Rolling Stones also captured his attention.

After being married for 20 years and having seven children, Peter decided to start writing his own songs that reflect his struggles in life and his relationship with God that was developing. Having had piano lessons as a young boy proved to be very beneficial to Peter as he used piano and keyboard to write many of his songs.

Being a self-employed carpenter allowed Peter enough free time in the winter months to concentrate on creating more songs. Two trips to Nashville, twelve songs done, the result is a CD called ''Broad Road''.

Having seven children, one a drummer and one a piano player, Peter has hopes that more of his children are interested in gospel music and will one day be involved in a band with him.

These days Peter is still building cabins and sheds. He enjoys camping with his wife and his youngest children and grandkids in an old 1989 Motor home. Peter would love to have a great band and be involved in music ministry. To contact Peter, drop him a line at 902-961-2613
