Andrew Peterson isn't going to wow you with tricky guitar riffs and fancy
vocals. Heís going to awe you with straightforward writing, simple acoustics,
and a desire to share his faith through song. "Clear To Venus" is an accumulation
of Petersonís pure writing and down to earth personality. Itís light and
easy to connect with. The beautiful ballad "Let Me Sing" for example,
is a summation of his Petersonís meaningful writing and his longing to
lift up and edify others.
Ö Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give You praise
Lord, let me praise You For the grace by which Iím saved
Lord, let me sing
Many comparisons have been made between Peterson and the late Rich Mullens.
Even though Peterson had never met Mullens, he names him as an influence
in his life. On "Clear To Venus", Peterson sings "Mary Picked The Roses",
a previously unreleased song by Rich Mullens.
