R&B songstress Peyton grew up completely immersed in music. Born and raised in Houston, TX, she began playing the violin at the age of five and spent every Sunday singing in church and having her grandmother, Grammy-nominated gospel singer Theola Booker, give her singing lessons. This musical upbringing exposed her to many foundational genres of music such as gospel, jazz, and classical, giving her not only strong technical skills, but a deep connection to the process of making music.

Peyton has already collaborated with some of the most visionary artists of the moment such as Steve Lacy on the song “Verbs” and Peanut Butter Wolf, who heard her single “Sweet Honey” on HBO’s Insecure and knew he had to sign her to his label, Stones Throw Records. Her debut EP on the label ‘Reach Out’ showed off her fascinating vocals and dynamic performance energy.

Now, she’s just released her confident, radiant debut album ‘PSA’, where she reflects on life, love, and friendship with an honest, unflinching perspective. We’re so excited to have her on the show today to hear more about the making of ‘PSA’, her classical violin training, and more!
