At the Santa Paula Theater Center
Imagine Tina Turner singing Country Music. Now, imagine a voice that goes beyond this by blending, soul, blues, country and R&B into a fresh, intuitive and well-written style of music…that is Petrella. With more than 25 years as a singer/songwriter and recording artist, Petrella’s style melds hints of Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, Macy Gray and – yes – Tina Turner into a beautiful, versatile sound all her own. Petrella, The First Lady of Country Soul, brings her blend of R&B, Blues, and Country with a Rock edge to the Altadena Public Library for their Second Saturday Music Series.
Discovered in California, this inventive new sound landed Petrella on the Cover of Cash Box magazine and produced 5 singles that landed in the top 100 on the Country Music Charts, with a Glen Frey penned song ”I Found Somebody” remaining on the charts for 14 weeks. In addition, a single from her “100 Proof Woman” CD climbed to Number 14 on the Billboard Hot Country Single Sales Chart.
