Pete Lawrie - A Little Brighter

A Little Brighter, debut album from Welsh singer-songwriter Pete Lawrie, is a top-notch collection of heartfelt tunes. Album opener 'In The End' and the excellent 'How Could I Complain' are full of nervous energy and suit Lawrie's whiskey-soaked vocals particularly well. However schmaltzy 'Half As Good' sounds a little too much like James Blunt for comfort, while ballads like 'Paperthin' and 'Jimmy And The Birds On Fire' are a bit sluggish and dull. Fortunately the album's up-beat tunes like single 'Fell Into The River' and 'If Not For You' keep things moving nicely. Lovely album from a bright new performer.
