Singer, Songwriter, Novelist
For more than twenty years now, Andrew Peterson has been about the business of quietly changing lives in four minute increments. In the city of Nashville where music is an industry in the same way fast food, generic greeting cards, and bumper stickers are industries, Peterson has forged his own path, refusing the artistic compromises that so often come with chasing album sales and radio singles and creating instead a long line of songs that ache with sorrow, joy and integrity, and that are, at the end of th e day, part of a real, ongoing, human conversation. Andrew is also the award-winning author of The Wingfeather Saga, a four book fantasy adventure series for young people, described as The Princess Bride meets The Lord of the Rings. The books are currently being produced as an animated film, which is terribly, wonderfully, indubitably exciting.
