It’s no secret that Gretchen’s star has been in great ascendency recently. Following her two American Music Association Awards for 2015’s Blackbirds, including Best International Album, Gretchen’s most recent release, Dancing With the Beast, also marked another career high. Blending shades of country-rock, indie-folk and Southern gothic with Peters’s smokily honeyed voice, it featured all-female characters, from pre-teen to elderly, whose stories vividly illuminated both the personal and political.
Over the years, Gretchen has always been an artist in high demand for her musical nous. She has written songs for many artists including Neil Diamond and Shania Twain, plus co-wrote and performed with Bryan Adams on the hit When You Love Someone.
Of her upcoming tour dates, Gretchen says: “We are immensely looking forward to the tour. It will be a lot of fun performing in these iconic venues”.
