Vanessa Peters

About the Artist: 

Texas songwriter Vanessa Peters has released 10 albums in the last 12 years and has played over 1000 shows in 11 countries as an independent artist. She has been called “the best kind of singer/songwriter,” was nominated as Best Folk Artist by The Dallas Observer, and has built a strong fan base throughout Europe thanks in part to the albums she made with her former Italian band, Ice Cream on Mondays, and the hundreds of shows she has played overseas. Her albums are consistently found on “best of” lists, and her latest, "The Burden of Unshakeable Proof," has been called "fully realized, written with elegance and imagination." It is a timeless album, anchored by strong melodic hooks and meditations on modern life that are poignant without being too pointed. No Depression lauded its “metaphor-rich songs” and “the depth and substance of her skillfully-crafted lyrics,” while Fort Worth Star Telegram called it, “10 gorgeously-sculpted tracks, a blissful shuffling of folk, pop, and jazz bound together by Peters's peerless voice.” She has been crowdfunding her albums for a decade, long before Kickstarter ever existed, and she is currently working on her next album, slated for release in mid-2018.
