“I’m a vegetarian that watches NASCAR, a tree-hugger that keeps a gun under the seat.”—-Grant Peeples

Dubbed a “guitar-slinging poet” by Music News Nashville.

A voice No Depression says “sounds like a ’57 Chevy with glass mufflers…”

Songs that Routes & Branches deemed “smart, strong lyrics that mean something, & say it in a way that you haven’t heard before.”

This finger-in-your-eye styled songwriter and seventh generation Floridian is a former expatriate. Grant Peeples spent 11 years on a tiny island off the coast of Nicaragua, where he installed the island’s first flushing toilet. He returned in 2006 to a very different homeland. Much of his song writing is a response to what he found when he returned.

His latest release, Prior Convictions (2012), was produced by legendary roots icon Gurf Morlix. John Conquest of 3rd Coast Music reviewed the record: “Unusually literate, unusually honest…he’s the only songwriter I’ve ever called ruthless…”

His mother finds his songs…disturbing…
