WHAT OTHER ARE SAYING ABOUT DOER OF THE WORD
All the songs sound bright with guitars, drums, keyboards and vocals all coming together almost as one. Dan's Christian faith is expressed throughout, but not in a heavy handed way. To pick out one song above the others is difficult, but the title track kicks it all off so well....
----- J Thompson, U.K. Music Critic
On the title track, America alum Gerry Beckley joins Peek on vocals to produce a sound indistinguishable from that of the group’s trademark hits.
----- Mark Allan Powell / Encyclopedia of CCM
If you like west coast harmonies and pop arrangements, there's plenty here to enjoy.

ABOUT THE ALBUM
In the '70s, Peek had been one third of one of the most successful bands in the USA, America. They became one of the biggest bands in the USA. Unfortunately the success still left Dan Peek empty inside and his spiritual journey led him to salvation in the late '70s. He left the band and embarked on a solo career, releasing his debut album in 1978. Doer of the Word is his second album released in 1984. One thing is for sure, Peek knows how to pen songs with hooky choruses and gorgeous harmony vocal arrangements. He even persuaded his former band mates in America to add their golden throats to the title cut here which is an absolute classic of melodic pop with an encouraging Christian message. Those catchy pop tunes continue throughout with other highlights including the killer chorus of "Holy Spirit" and the pleasant vibe of "Your Father Loves You". Peek's skill is combining a strong message with a great melody. I'm left reflecting that 20 years later, there are few modern artists who are truly interested in making strongly spiritual music outside the worship genre, which is a shame. If you like west coast harmonies and pop arrangements, there's plenty here to enjoy. For fans of classic America, Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, Don Henley, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Seger, The Band, and Van Morrison.
