Overview

Gretchen Peters

Gretchen Peters has written her fair share of hit songs for other artists. Perhaps she ought to start thinking about keeping some of those for herself, because she's got the spunk and passion to make it on her own, and an earthy, attitude-filled voice similar to Jo Dee Messina's to put the edge on her material. Blending rock propulsion with honky-tonk energy, Peters's songs explore the shadow world of relationships, where answers can be elusive. The sizzling "I Don't Know" lays out all the contradictory emotions while ultimately advising the listener that if it feels good, it probably is. Peters is even more effective when she cools things down. On the Tom Waits-ish "Love and Texaco," she mourns a good man she let go, as her band conjures a woozy ambiance defined by bluesy organ, yearning guitar lines, and quietly thumping acoustic bass. While many of these stories are about "lambs gone astray," as Peters sings in the album-closing confession, "Revival," none of those lambs are left without hope. Ditto the listener.
