A pure voice is a rare find and Theresa Peterson has found hers, both as a singer and a songwriter. Her smooth tone echoes the ease of singers like Joni Mitchell and Alison Krauss, floating between octaves with melodies that stretch the line between old and new. Peterson's songs have been called "achingly beautiful" with themes that call up our deepest dreams and nostalgias.
A native Texan and a lifelong musician, starting out on violin at age 3 and writing songs since childhood, Peterson claims songs flooded out of her after moving to Colorado in 2014. The call to move west was ever present and it's now apparent why. After finding her way back to herself and pouring back into her music, she discovered her true voice as well as a passion for creating community. She is founder, host, and curator of Boulder In-the-Round, a monthly songwriter showcase at eTown which ran for 5 years and hosted 3 local singer-songwriters every month.
Peterson has been taking her genre of Dreamamericana to the next level this new decade beginning in 2020 with a string of self-recorded, self-produced singles and continuing with a new self-produced album No Rules in Montana released in July 2021.
