In the tradition of Adult Album Alternative radio and the re-emergence of the singer/songwriter in the late 1990s, Peter Tammetta is looking for his place among the great American songwriters past and present with his debut release. From birth to death to rebirth, A Thousand Years addresses the timeless commonality of the human experience. Themes of growth, transformation, love, and self-discovery weave their way through this collection of songs, from the hopeful Beautiful Dreamer's images of rebirth, through the title track's sense of timelessness and fate, to Last Love Song's peaceful admission that some questions will be left unanswered. Intimate personal stories and images from Tammetta's own experience resonate with the listener, a metaphorical comment on their own lives. Thoughtful lyrics evoke Paul Simon, Sarah McLachlan and James Taylor. The production style incorporates textural and rhythmic elements of Rickie Lee Jones, Bob Marley and Sting, with pulsing grooves and textural layers of sound supporting the material without obscuring the essence of the songs. Featuring some of Seattle's premier musicians including producer David Loy, a former LA session player, Keith Lowe, Fiona Apple's touring Bass Player, and Van Manakas, from the New York session scene. In a hail of light a state of grace Blink of an eye twist of your fate The little things and everything Drift away beautiful dreamer The seven wonders the salt in your tears Witness to the missing years Another life another time Drift away beautiful dreamer Beautiful Dreamer - P. Tammetta.
