In the store: Peyton – PSA
PSA is the full-length debut album from Houston-based singer Peyton
Radiating confidence and self-love, PSA sees Peyton standing in the spotlight and making herself heard. Throughout the 12-track album, listeners are taken inside the reflective world of a young woman’s attempt to comprehend love, friendship, and life itself. “Everything I’m singing feels like my thoughts are pouring out boldly to the world,” says Peyton.
Peyton began writing PSA in 2018, then worked with several producers including Biako, Jay Anthony, Vicky Farewell, Julia Lewis and Keys & Krates, to bring her vision to life. The album’s opening track “What Did I Do” puts a positive spin on her break-up with a close friend; “Don’t U Wanna Fly” is a reminder to see the beauty in child-like simplicity; “Let It Flow” is about trusting your intuition, and “Perfect Peach” is a song about innocent love. The album closes with Peyton’s cover of “Pure Imagination” – originally sung by Gene Wilder in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory – a song that draws on PSA’s themes of youthful hope and continual creativity.
Growing up, Peyton learned just how empowering music can be while she sang in her church and was mentored by her grandmother, the great Grammy Award-nominated gospel singer Theola Booker. In recent years, Peyton’s breakout hit single “Sweet Honey” appeared on HBO’s Insecure, and in 2019, she released her debut Stones Throw EP Reach Out. Now, she is ready to make her PSA to the world.
