After writing and recording 27 songs in preparation for her seventh album, Vanessa Peters settled on ten personal tracks to make up The Burden of Unshakeable Proof. Her background in creative writing serves her well in her songwriting. Her lyrics are thoughtful and honest but still poetic and full of metaphors. Peters has been compared to (& mistaken for) Aimee Mann, one of her own musical idols. Songs like “Delicate” manage to blend the tenderness of a ballad without being depressing; instead, the melodies and instrumentation are reflective and thought provoking. “206 Bones” highlights her folk-rock side while “Atmosphere” is a gentle, indie-rock tune. Peters’ vocal on “Change Your Disguise” is reminiscent of Alanis Morissette’s relaxed and almost spoken singing style. As a whole, this album radiates the down-to-earth and captivating way Peters shares her feelings through music.
