Called "the best kind of singer-songwriter" by The Dallas Observer, Vanessa Peters has played over 1000 shows in 11 countries since 2003, receiving accolades from abroad and in her hometown of Dallas, where she was recently nominated as "Best Folk Artist." She continues to tour the US and in Europe, where she has a strong fan base thanks to the albums she made with her former Italian band, Ice Cream on Mondays, and the hundreds of shows she has played in Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and Denmark.

Her most recent album, "The Burn The Truth The Lies," was her most commercially and critically successful to date. Financed through Kickstarter, the album was recorded by Jim Vollentine (Patty Griffin, Spoon) and produced by Rip Rowan (Old 97s, Rhett Miller). She was backed by an all-star cast of Texas musicians, including Grammy award-winning guitarist Joe Reyes, drummer John Dufilho (Apples in Stereo), and bassist Jason Garner (The Polyphonic Spree).

After touring for two years in support of her last album, Vanessa is now working on a number of new projects. She expects to release at least two albums in 2015 – an Americana-tinged album recorded with The Sentimentals, as well as an album of her own material co-produced with Rip Rowan. And who knows? "I've been dying to do a covers record for years," Vanessa says with a little smile. "Don't see why we can't squeeze that in as well."

"The singer-songwriter's fifth full-length, the album's rich with intimate observations and relaxed, natural musicianship even on exuberant anthems such as "Grateful." Her writing and unaffected deliver evokes Aimee Mann as well as the Weakerthans' John K. Samson"
- David Greenwald, music critic for the Oregonian
