““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
Peyton Stilling has a story to tell--and the powerful voice to tell it. The 18-year-old singer-songwriter from Plano, 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 12.
“After that night of performing on stage, I knew that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she says.
Six years later, Peyton is carving out a niche as a must-see singer-songwriter in the vein of Norah Jones, Carole King, John Mayer and Lianne La Havas. Like those artists, Peyton is a talented singer with a story to tell. Her seamless blend of soulful vocals and heartrending lyrics creates can’t-miss music. After her mother’s cancer diagnosis, young 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 is motivated by telling stories that speak to her listeners.
She’s lifted up audiences across Texas--and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Peyton has previously played Lava Cantina in The Colony, Richardson’s Wildflower Festival and will be a regular performer at The Rustic in 2019. She looks forward to future shows as she releases her first single in February.
“Music has been a blessing in my life in ways I can’t even describe,” she says. “It gives me the opportunity to write and perform songs that truly connect with others.”
