Here’s another Kickstarter success story from a Beat Surrender favourite Vanessa Peters who latest album is up for pre-order now, the Texas-based singer-songwriter who has being recording and playing since 2002 has racked-up over a thousand gigs in eleven countries and also spent a period of years based in Italy – touring through Europe with and without the band Ice Cream on Mondays with whom she recorded and released a trio of albums.

Vanessa Peters has had another busy year touring, planning, writing and recording but managed in the middle of year amidst outside temperatures of a 100+ to put together her first festive record The Christmas We Hoped For, the title track a Peter’s original takes pride of place on the recording that includes some takes on traditional tunes, ‘classics’ and the contemporary in the form of The Weepies All That I Want, so you get the best of all worlds wedded one recording, something old, something new, something borrowed and something country-blues.
If if like myself you have penchant for a festive tune or two then I’d highly recommend you get your hands on the album that offers a perfect accompaniment to the time-of-year, so kick back with glass of mulled wine and a mince pie (or Panettone and Bombardino if your prefer) and enjoy ride
