ARTIST OF THE DAY
You know those people who have just done so much in their young lives that leave you a little embarrassed by how little you have accomplished? Andrew Peterson is one such individual.
Discovered by Caedmon's Call, Andrew Peterson is a singer-songwriter who isn't afraid to challenge the norm. He was nominated for "Country Recorded Songs Of The Year" at the 2004 Dove Awards, even though he's not strictly a country musician. He's spent over a decade touring with artists Caedmon's Call, Derek Webb, Nicole Nordeman, Jill Phillips, and other members of the mysterious "Square Peg Alliance."
The SPA is a group of Christian artists who push the envelope when it comes to lyrics and reaching the lost for Christ by actually going to them, rather than hoping they show up at a church show. They often play at bars, instead of churches, and host Q&A sessions at their table after the show.
Further establishing his artist cred - Peterson is the proprietor of The Rabbit Room - a community of songwriters, authors and artists interested in storytelling, faith and fellowship.
