Originally from Monticello, IL, Andrew Peterson is a Christian singer, songwriter, and speaker. His first full-length album, Carried Along, came out in 2000. His style is a mixture of pop, bluegrass, folk rock, blues, and more, all from a Christian perspective. Since then, he has used his talents to release 15 more albums, including a mixture of original songs, a Christmas album, and live albums. His 2010 single Dancing in the Minefields ranked #13 on Billboard’s Top Christian songs chart.
In 2007, Peterson helped write The Ballad of Matthew’s Begats, a whimsical picture book based on his song of the same name. He’s also written the young adult fantasy series The Wingfeather Saga, which follows the journey of the three Igiby children, Janner, Kalmar, and Leeli. Peterson’s teenage son illustrated it.
After being inspired by C.S. Lewis’ Oxford home, Peterson and his brother Pete founded The Rabbit Room, a Christ-centered hub for Christian artists and entertainers. The Rabbit Room focuses on creating a community of Christ-centered music, story, and art. (You can read more about it here.)
