Tra la la la la!

Hey all!
Happy New Year! I feel like I can say that until February 1st. It eases the pain of having to live through January, which has to be my least favorite month. Sorry, January.

Other things that ease the pain of January: being in the studio!

Right now we’re working on demos and hoping to have some stuff for you to hear sometime soon. Not sure if we’re releasing one album or maybe two EPs… lots of things in the works though!

Also, I’d like to introduce you to a little side project: Eunice and Bart.

We Are Unstoppable

We Are Unstoppable

Eunice and Bart are a Vanessa Peters cover band, though they do original material from time to time. They’re playing this Saturday night in Dallas – come check them out if you’re around!

Plans for this year include some touring with Eunice and Bart around the US and Europe, as well as some full-band shows here and there. We’ll keep you posted.

Love and best wishes for the new year,

Kicking off 2013 with a big ol’ European tour…


After a bit of holiday dormancy, I’m crawling out of hibernation and hitting the road again. We’ve got big tour lined up in Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium, and we’ve got a few open dates left if any of you in Austria or Switzerland wants to host us for a house concert. See below!

Come and Get It…

I’m getting organized for an awful lot of touring in 2013, and I need to make some room in my storage unit.

Until December 31, you can buy ANY of my albums for $5 directly from me. Build up your back catalog!  Shipping is FREE in the US and $5-10 internationally (depending on how many albums you purchase).

You can buy any combination of albums  - want 5 Christmas CDs?  Done!  Want to stock up on a few of my early album for friends? Easy.  Just click on the Paypal button below! In the “notes to seller” section, just tell me which CDs you’d like (title(s) and quantity). You can find my catalog listed here.

**UPDATE** “Sparkler” is now sold out.

Thanks for giving my storage unit a breather! :)
xoxo – vanessa
