Word of South 2021

Grant Peeples

Singer-songwriter Grant Peeples, a native of Tallahassee, says he was changed forever at the age of 15 when a friend came over and played three classic Bob Dylan songs.  Peeples’ long career as a musician has included a short stint in Nashville, owning a club where artists like Jerry Jeff Walker played, recording music with his buddies at the Possum Club studio in Wakulla County, and a 10-year non-productive sojourn in Nicaragua. He returned to the States 10 years ago and has been entertaining fans with his energetic performances and acerbic wit ever since. Peeples and his band, the Peeples Republik, will release a new album, A Congress of Treasons, in 2016.
