    Just One Of Them
Weaving thoughtful, introspective lyrics with irresistible melodies, Vanessa Peters has been releasing album after album of well-crafted folk/rock gems for more than a decade.
She has played over 1000 shows across the US and Europe, receiving accolades from abroad and in her hometown of Dallas, where she was recently nominated as "Best Folk Artist" by The Dallas Observer. After the critical and commercial success of her Kickstarter-financed 2012 album "The Burn The Truth The Lies" - engineered by Jim Vollentine (Spoon, Patty Griffin) - and the success in Europe of 2015's "With The Sentimentals” (recorded in Denmark with the award-winning jazz/folk trio of the same name), Vanessa Peters released "The Burden of Unshakeable Proof" in 2016. It was issued on vinyl via indie label Palo Santo Records and was distributed in Europe by Audioglobe Records. The album was on a number of "best of 2016" lists, including No Depression's "Alt Country and Beyond" list. Her new album is slated for release in mid-2018, and the first single, “Lucky,” was released 3/16/18.

“The best kind of singer-songwriter.” ‒ Dallas Observer
"Peters's metaphor-rich songs remind me more of Josh Ritter, perhaps not in sound or style, but in the depth and substance of her skillfully crafted lyrics.” ‒ No Depression
“10 gorgeously-sculpted tracks, a blissful shuffling of folk, pop, and jazz bound together by Peters’ peerless voice.” ‒ Fort Worth Star Telegram
