Peyton Stilling has a story to tell--and the powerful voice to tell it. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter from Dallas, Texas was an avid poet before she ever strummed a chord, but her life changed forever the moment she stepped on stage at the age of 15.
“After that night of performing on stage, I knew that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she says.
Four years later, Peyton is carving out a niche as a must-see pop singer-songwriter in the vein of Maggie Rogers, Norah Jones, John Mayer and Lianne La Havas. Her seamless blend of soulful vocals and heartrending lyrics creates can’t-miss music. After her mother’s cancer diagnosis, Peyton leaned on the power of music to pull her through. Now, she’s hoping that her music can be that uplifting force for someone else.
Peyton shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Since her debut single "Forest Through The Trees", she has hit over 200k streams on Spotify, been featured on NPR Music, opened for The Fray, made appearances on Good Morning Texas and Fox 4 News, and performed with Sofar Sounds DFW, ATX, and NYC. Her next single "Surround Me" releases January 17th.
“Stilling has a depth and tone to her voice that's rare for a vocalist still in her teens.”
“Peyton’s new single “Out of My Mind” is one of my favorite new productions I’ve worked on. It showcases her vibe in the best of ways: it’s groovy, contemplative, raw, and most importantly real. ”
— Josh Goode, two-time Emmy award winning producer
““Peyton is one of those rare young artists that writes good songs and has the work ethic and determination to make it in this overcrowded industry. I have high hopes for this one!””
— Bradley Prakope, Music Engineer
