Teresa’s journey of faith and music began in earnest when she felt a call from God at 16 years old saying, “I desire for you to sing for me and for them.” Through her music, she openly shares the struggles she has faced in this walk and the deep truth of God’s continued faithfulness. Her refreshing honesty and vibrant music inspire hope and courage for what is to come.
Faithful communicates the joy found in waiting for God’s triumph, for the moment when Jesus steps into our suffering and brokenness and changes everything.
“Only walking in the promises of God, I wrote Faithful to speak life to all the barren circumstances of my life. Like the woman in Isaiah 54, this album rejoices in the breakthrough that is yet to come. He is faithful.”
Sonically, Faithful is a joyful, powerful, and upbeat “summer worship” album. Robert Venable (Stars Go Dim, Twenty One Pilots, Kelly Clarkson) and Jake Jones (As We Ascend, We As Human, Tori Harris) teamed up for the production, and the songs and lyrics are a beautiful collaboration between Teresa and several notable writers and musicians (Jake Jones, Leo Ahlstrom, Dana Catherine, & His Own).

A Voice That Commands an Audience| Posted June 08, 2018
What You Need To Know: Teresa Peterson joins a small circle of Catholics in the Christian music industry with her third EP, Faithful. Written during a time when Peterson was learning the meaning of surrender and giving her career to God, Faithful aims to blaze a trail for Catholic musicians with a message accessible across denominational lines. (Editor's Note: This Catholic from Philly takes special pride in another Philly Catholic leaving a national musical footprint.)
What It Sounds Like:
Peterson's brand of worship pop is crisp and well polished. Her voice is strong but carries a slightly raw and intimate current that can help her stand out from some of her contemporaries. A lot of the songs come with musical surprises, such as the violin section of "Where I Should Be" and the climactic finish of "One and Only."
Peterson's music is decidedly worshipful. Touching on common topics in the industry, Peterson bears her heart with five songs of surrendering our lives to Christ that should resonate with listeners regardless of their denomination affiliations.
