Petrella has a long-standing career in the country and music pop genre. As an unsung hero, she has accomplished more than any black female artist in the country music industry. Throughout the years, Petrella has worked with some of the greatest studio musicians in Nashville including drummer Eddie Bayers, fiddle player Rob Hajacos, and Oren Waters, just to name a few. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of The First Lady of Country Soul to make history, HIP Video Promo presents her newest video clip “Working in the USA.”
As an independent artist, Petrella has recorded with noted producers Anthony Smith and Jason Miles who has worked with Sting and Suzy Boggus, and has performed alongside talents such as Tracy Lawrence, Gladys Knight, and LuLu Washington. Her music has lander her an Airplay International Golden Microphone Award and a Producer’s Choice Award; her first album Countryversial was nominated for Album of the Year by Nashville tracker magazine and her single “Blues Stay Away from Me” reached #50 on the charts and was the #1 ranked independent single by Cashbox magazine. As a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International, The Reunion of Professional Entertainers, and Country Music Association, Petrella has found a way to make her singles to reach spots within the top 100, not to mention that she owns her own record label and publishing company. Having three CDs produced by the legendary record producer, author, and award winning radio personality Jack Gale, Petrella’s latest album Shine on Me celebrates her twenty-five years in the country music business as an independent artist. The album reflects the country/soul elements of this artist’s music by blending Gospel, R&B, country, and straight up rock and roll.
