A self-described "vegetarian that watches NASCAR, and tree-hugger with a gun below the seat," national singer-songwriter Grant Peeples is known for his ax-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads. In 2014 he was the recipient of the Focus Foundation Award for Creative Excellence, which cited the "humor, compassion and wisdom of his songs," as well as their "unflinching social insight and cultural acuity." Third Coast Magazine's John Conquest says "Peeples is unusually literate, unusually honest. And the only songwriter I have ever called 'ruthless'." This year he was chosen as a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Songwriter showcase.
