Free Music Friday: Petrella & Mixed Influences

  • San Luis Obispo Brewery & Taproom 675 Clarion Court San Luis Obispo, CA, 93401 United States (map)


Imagine Tina Turner singing Country 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.  In the whole world of Country and Soul, there are plenty of acts that sell hundreds of thousands (even millions) of units; but there is none that blend pure soul with country as well as 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.
