"Sleepless Wooden Stars" is a special NoiseTrade sampler album. It is an introduction to the music of Irish Songwriter Peter Doran. The twelve songs on here are lifted from Peter's three Studio albums: "Wood" (2006), "Sleepless Street" (2010) and the forthcoming "Overhead the Stars" (2012). Peter Doran began his musical journey at the tender age of 11 with an electric guitar as his weapon of choice. After a few years of utter devotion to the instrument he strayed to it’s acoustic counterpart and took his first stumbling steps towards becoming a writer of songs.Since then he has self-released two albums and toured extensively throughout Ireland and the UK. September 14th will see the release of Peter’s 3rd album “Overhead the Stars”. The album was recorded at The world famous Grouse Lodge Studios, (Michael Jackson, Snow Patrol, Muse etc.) in Ireland.
