Drew Peterson is an independent Americana singer-songwriter who has captivated fans across the Midwest for over 15 years. Involved in projects with dynamic musicians and as a solo musician, Peterson has built a unique brand that transcends the genre.
Since fronting the Minnesota-based group Forty Watt Bulb, Peterson has spawned two other successful Roots projects; the twangy, upbeat Dead Pigeons and bluegrass-influenced Boxstore Bird, paired with the incredibly talented multi-instrumental Mandy Fassett.
With clever, dry humor and thought-provoking lyrics, Peterson’s music is like oil over gravel. Drawing on influences from John Prine, Tom Waits, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, among others, Peterson offers the world upbeat tunes with a soft-spoken gravitas that belies his years.
With a performance style that can transform from intimate listening room to rowdy festivals and bars, Peterson always gives his heart and soul to the stage. And with each new performance, he asks of the world to remember what music is all about; connecting through storytelling.
Help us welcome Adam Herman of The Slamming Doors performing solo!
"With a sound that has been called 'stylistic roots in Southern rock, soul and the jam-band movement,' The Slamming Doors have been enjoying some success in the region and have just released a new album, The Road Beneath The Wheel, which a review in the Duluth News Tribune has called "One of the year's best." I'll always be writing songs- Herman says of his career. 'Even if I don't see a dime from it. I love it, and I'm proud of what I do.'"
