As an artist, Gretchen has regularly toured in the UK, Ireland and Europe to sold out crowds. In a review of her self-titled album, GRETCHEN PETERS, The Associated Press says, â€œThis is not jukebox music - the stuff that exists to fill in the pauses in conversation. This IS the conversation.â€
Praise for The Secret Of Life:
â€œoffers 10 fresh reasons to elect her to the country songwriter's Hall of Fame... Peters, whose choir-girl voice has a seductive hint of late nights and cigarettes, knows the tunesmith's secret: crafting a good love song... The passionately elegiac When You Are Old is a declaration of eternal devotion: "When your brave tales have all been told/ I'll ask for them when you are old." In Peters' music every tale is brave, unique, beautiful.â€
"If Peters never delivers another tune as achingly beautiful as "On a Bus to St. Cloud,"... she has already earned herself a spot among country's upper echelon of contemporary composers."
"she has more in common with the romantic sensibilities of Rickie Lee Jones... Peters' songs about emotional thirsts that never get quenched have a quiet power all their own..."
Gretchen was nominated in 2003 for a Golden Globe award for her work on the DreamWorks animated film, â€œSpirit: Stallion of the Cimarronâ€, and her multi-award winning "Independence Day" was recently included in CMT's list of The Top 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music.
