Dreams of the Heartland
NEW RELEASE 'Dreams of the Heartland' The first Lady of Country Soul returns with a new CD full of Torch, Twang and Bluesy Spirit. Imagine Tina Turner singing Americana music. Now, stretch that image to imagine a voice that goes beyond this by blending roots, soul and R&B into a fresh, intuitive and well-written country music..that is Petrella's ground-breaking new CD entitled DREAMS OF THE HEARTLAND. In the whole world of AAA, Americana and Alt. Country, there are plenty of acts that sell hundreds of thousand (even millions) of units;but there is none that compare to Petrella. Dubbed 'a true vocal power house who will lead you to believe that every song is sung by a completely different person' by Matt Yeager of the Morning News, Petrella's style melds hints of Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, Macy Gray and - yes - Tina Turner into a beautiful, versatile sound all her own. Review Smother.net 'Her music is a marriage of gospel, country, soul, and roots rock. And it is beautiful. Her vocals are well trained and focus on creating full fledged harmony. The songs are well written, masterful looks at country and soul and their common bridge.
