Peter Drucker is a young musician who is just getting his start playing music. He began getting interested in playing music at the tender age of fourteen. Drucker only has five years under his belt being nineteen but has some talent as displayed on Hell and Hurricanes.
The music is very much falls into a pop category. His music feels clean and radio-friendly if the production had some improvements. There isn't much of an edge to his music. Between the structure and delivery, I felt it would be appreciated by a very broad demographic.
He opens with “Don’t Let Me Change” which ironically is going to happen to Drucker quite a bit as he goes into his ’20s. The song is catchy and single-worthy in an FM radio type of radio. I thought the vocals could use a little treatment but other than that it’s very accessible pop song.
Up next is “Wet.” I thought the guitar action on the song was impressive and palatable. The song has the hopeful, inspired feeling that dominates the pop/rock genre that Coldplay helped make popular. He introduces a little bit of distortion on “Rockstar” which was a highlight. The song at it’s best has a Jamiroquai vibe. Remember him?
“Something Greater” actually reminded of early ’90s pop/rock music. I think it was that piano. Another highlight is “Hell And Hurricanes” which is buoyantly happy while the closer “Telescope” is reflective and sparse.
Drucker is going for an obvious sound. Suffice it to say this isn’t music that will thrive in the underground. All things considered Drucker makes solid pop music. That being said even within this arena you need to have something that sticks out from the crowd. I don’t think Drucker is there yet but has an ample amount of time to start defining himself as an artist. Recommended.
