''Peeples is unusually honest, unusually literate. He’s the only songwriter I have ever thought to call "ruthless".... " John Conquest, Third Coast Magazine
“It’s hard to start a revolution when your face is six feet from your television.”
-GP from his song Searching for a Sign
Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads.
Grant Peeples’ Mission Statement
To try to weave and dance through the troubles of the day.
To shadow box with my memories.
To write like my feet are on fire.
To not be afraid to take a punch.
To encourage others in their respective endeavors.
To remain thick-skinned and bone-tired.
To keep my teeth sharp and my heart soft.
To steer clear of cheap rhyme.
To remember that the symbol IS the message
To pick a fight every day
To see the world through the eyes of others.
To find my people, and deliver onto them.
To not succumb to harmless artistic endeavors.
And to never give up, ever.
