There is no single musical artist who has affected my life more than Andrew Peterson. I affectionately call him Andy Pete, but shh, don’t tell him I told you. He is a mastermind behind poetic wording, powerful sounds, and intricate melodies. His music is hard to box in. It is more folk than not, slightly bluegrass, but not really country. It has slight hints of pop and rock but really meshes all these together in an incredibly well-blended, thoughtful melding. He’s a poet-painter and uses music as his canvas.
