about

We are Wyoming, the follow-up to 2004's well-received debut LP Blue Cotton Skin, found its direction on the road. Touring cross-country behind her debut, Jessica Peters (aka Petracovich) and her husband Ryan, suddenly found themselves knowing nothing more about what the future held than where they were. And where they were, was Wyoming. The result of that singular, hugely open moment is a record of in-betweens: of both them liberating joy of freedom and the frightening vertigo of impermanence.

Rain, train whistles, neighborhood chatter, birds' chirpings, and the sounds of a warmly lived life have seeped into the
airy ether of We are Wyoming.

Jessica Peters takes the name Petracovich from her old-world family name, brought to America by her great-grandfather Abraham Petracovich when he was just eleven. As a child asking what the elder Petracovich was like (deleted stuff), she was told a story that mirrored her own musical fascinations and delicate approach to her work;(deleted stuff) the image of (deleted old) Abraham, decked to the nines in his best suit and cuff links, hair combed back, listening to the New York Opera on the radio with the utmost respect.
