Colin Peterik’s ‘Everything and Nothing’ Is A Sonic Experience You Don’t Want To Miss
The magnetic musician, singer, songwriter, and producer Colin Peterik has that Chicago grit. His voice embodies The Windy City – tough but diverse in harmony. He’s bluesy at times, and in other moments he’s flexing his rock muscles. He’s not set in the past, but you know he’s been ingesting rock and roll, jazz, blues, and psychedelic rock since childhood. You might say he’s
been destined to continue a musical legacy or at the very least be a conduit to the multitude of sounds and experiences from this Midwestern Beacon. Colin Peterik, the son of legendary songwriter Jim Peterik, the founder of The Ides of March (‘Vehicle’) and Survivor (‘Eye of the Tiger’), has his own song arsenal.
Each track on Peterik's debut album ‘Everything and Nothing’ is unique, keeping you on your toes and ready for more. Track two, ‘Jack and Jill,’ has a groovy feel. The instrumental surrounds you with the smooth sounds of trumpets and Peterik's thoughtfully carried out harmonies.
The title track, ‘Everything and Nothing,’ lyrically highlights the internal struggle we all go through of realizing we exist and we're being perceived. At least Peterik lets us contemplate this thought with some soothing background music.
This album is perfect for sitting back, relaxing, and thinking. Track eleven, ‘Bad Days,’ has an overall funky sound that grabs your attention. The instrumental towards the song's end is unlike anything you've ever heard.
