Check out our interview with Peyton below:
1. Give us a glimpse into your musical upbringing. Who or what initially influenced your passion for music?
My love for music started when I was really little. I didn’t grow up around music but always found myself drawn to it. My family used to watch American Idol religiously and that was really what sparked my love for music. I started learning guitar so I could put chords behind the melodies in my head. I started writing full songs and going to small open mic nights. Once I started doing that I couldn’t envision myself doing anything else.
2. Tell us something you want your new listeners to know about you.
I want my new listeners to know I just got a dog (her name is Finley) right when quarantine happened and she has been the absolute best company. I also am studying Music Business at the Berklee College of Music Online.
3. Did writing about your heartbreak help you along your healing process?
Writing is 100% my form of therapy. It helps me sort out every emotion I am feeling and then once the song is done, I can take a step back and process it all.
4. Do the stories in your songs always draw from personal experience or are you also inspired by outside influences?
My songs usually draw from personal experience. It can be scary at times because every song I release is a little part of me, but it makes being vulnerable so worth it.
5. With the vibe of your sound, what show or film do you think it’d be a great fit for?
Growing up I LOVED New Girl, Big Little Lies & Little Fires Everywhere so 15 year old Peyton would love for my music to have been on one of those. I just finished watching Euphoria, and I think my music would have been a great fit for that.
6. What is a collaboration that you want to happen (whether it’s with you or not)?
My dream collaborations would have to be with Maseago, Leon Bridges and H.E.R.
7. How much of an influence is social media on your day-to-day life?
It is a pretty big part of my day-to-day life. Social media has given me the ability to connect with people from all over the world and pursue what I love.
8. What do you want people to hear and take away from your writing/music?
I hope they walk away feeling like they know me. I am an open book in real life and I want that transparency to transfer over to my music.
