ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reprinted from SLAMM ...
"A Thousand Wishes shows Peggy Watson is more than just a brilliant songwriter and great vocalist - she's a seasoned pro. This highly personal acoustic folk album reflects her unique view of the world. The stories are true, the places are real and the emotion is overflowing. Her poetic lyrics are visual enough to bring her words to life.

The opening track, "Dance Like That," a tale of a woman dancing without reservation shows a willingness to take risks in life without holding back and a struggle to be more than an observer. This song is complimented by backing vocals from Robin Adler and intricate musicianship from local favorite, John Katchur.

Other standout tracks include the heart-wrenching "Are You Listening" and the down-to-earth "Rescue Me." "Sand Dollar Beach" is luminous with percussion from Jeff Berkley, and addresses the theme of searching for something only to find the unexpected instead.

Watson comes off as a '90s Joni Mitchell and takes her influence from a wide genre of music including Latin, classical, jazz and rock 'n' roll. She holds many San Diego artists in high esteem, crediting them as major sources of inspiration to her music - A Thousand Wishes features Barnaby Finch (piano), Dave Curtis (bass), Rob Whitlock (B3, Wurlitzer), Fred Beneditti (guitar), Linda Vickerman and Chris Hassett, vocals.

Hats off to producer, engineer and musician Dave Blackburn for an outstanding production."
