In Conversation With… Gretchen Peters (Off The Record UK)

Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview with Off The Record UK:

Had you always known that you wanted to put out your own music, even though you did start as a songwriter? I feel like you’ve recently hit this gorgeous niche in your music with your recent albums.

It’s funny you say that because, one of the reasons why I felt like it was time to do this Mickey Newbury record, was because the last three albums I put out, I had come to a resting place. What I mean is, if someone asked me ‘what do you do?’ I could give them those three albums and could feel completely satisfied in that. I felt like I had found my home artistically, and so I don’t think I could make this record of Newbury songs until I had got to that place. I always felt like I had more to say. In a way, the two things were really related for me. The time was right, and all of a sudden the studio appeared and it felt like the universe was saying ‘ok, it’s time.’
