Mark Peters – “24 Years”

Based in Vienna and London, Mark Peters produces a vein of acoustic-driven material that takes cues from the likes of Nick Drake and Ben Harper, adding ample depth and strongly avoiding the standard fare of most acoustic singer/songwriters. Peters shows ample mood on “24 Years” that exemplifies this unique charm, building into a suave and gritty chorus, escalating nicely at 01:40 when Peters repeats “bury me.” Peters started writing this track over 15 years ago, while at university, and its timeless appeal brings him back to it — serving as a nice introductory point for new listeners as well.
