"Where Are You Now" on Queen Sugar 

Happy New Year! 

Sometimes you find out about good things after they've happened, but it doesn't take away from the goodness -- like finding out my song "Where Are You Now" from Faster Than The Days was on an episode of Queen Sugarthe TV series created, directed and executive produced by Oscar-nominated Ava DuVernay ... with Oprah Winfrey serving as an executive producer.

Oprah AND Ava!

DuVernay is the director of Selma, the powerful documentary 13th, and the upcoming film adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time. She's also a Twitter badass. Here's an article from the Atlantic magazine about 13th (if you haven't seen it, please make time for it).

Here's hoping good things are in store for you in 2018.

Cheers,

Innocent Words Magazine Recommends Faster Than The Days 

Troy Michael of Innocent Words magazine reviewed the new album for the latest issue. Some highlights:

"...commands your attention due to her powerful and soulful delivery. Part Janis Joplin, part Merry Clayton, and a little bit Dolly Parton, Peterman’s voice soars ..."

"... it’s Peterman’s stories, some personal and some fiction, which hold your attention. With her nomad lifestyle, she has a lot of palettes to choose from, and does a fine job painting a picture for the listener to admire."

Insurgentcountry.net Recommends Faster Than The Days 

Johanna Bodde posted a glowing review of the new album on insurgentcountry.net. Some highlights:

“I hear Andrea's wonderful strong voice again... I remember immediately why I love her music so much! There's something in the combination of her crystal clear voice up front and the stellar band behind her.”
 
“Charlie is an intimate, sad and sweet song - kind of like "Jody And The Kid" by Kris Kristofferson.”
 
“Alt-country at its very best!”

Get Back! A Tribute to The Beatles at McCaw Hall 

I had the thrill of singing to a sold-out house at Seattle's McCaw Hall last night. The show, produced by Synergia Northwest, celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Beatles 1964 Seattle concert, and featured a host of iconic Seattle musicians. I sang George Harrison's "Within You Without You" backed by the 50-piece Synergia Northwest Orchestra and traditional Indian instruments.
