...Peter Broderick was born January 20, 1987, he grew up in a small town Portland in Oregon. Coming from a musical family, he started violin lessons at age 7, and in high school became interested in all different kinds of instruments. He started to play piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, musical saw, and anything else he could find.
In late 2007 he was miraculously invited by some of his musical heroes, the Danish band Efterklang, to move to Copenhagen and join the live band. So he did, and since then he has toured with the band all around the world, playing hundreds of concerts, and opening many of them as a solo act.
Since this move he has released several solo recordings as well. Starting with a few primarily instrumental, piano-based releases in 2007, then branching out into a completely different world with the more folky ‘Home’ in late 2008, which has all but established Broderick as the young composer to watch – with critical acclaim from music magazines
Critical acclaim for “Home” by Peter Broderick, released in Oct 2008…
“This is a magical album… everything is so powerful, so artfully placed… we stumble on moments that recall the magnificence of Simon and Garfunkel at their peak, or David Pajo at his most ambient"
Sunday Times - 5 Stars ***** (CD of the Week)
“it slips into a niche somewhere between Sigur Ros and Art Garfunkel, then demands you admire its impeccable artistry. On the second listen it sounds like a future classic. And it only gets better after that.”
MOJO - 4 Stars ****
"A precociously talented, classically trained multi-instrumentalist… His songs involve fragmentary impressions, reactions and daydreams… an absorbing, meditative treat."
The Independent – 4 Stars ****
“he fashions 10 marvellously melancholic songs that sound like Nick Drake re-imagined by Brian Eno; they begin as intimate, folky whispers, before Broderick’s multi-tracked voice grows into a huge, celestial choir. The effect is stunning… An incredible record"
NME - 8/10
“Meticulous and compelling folk carvings… these songs, a hybrid of classical and folk, are delicate but have got guts, recalling Bon Iver."
Uncut - 4 Stars ****
