Peyton Stilling Music, The Herald
Born into a non-musical family, Lorena Leigh has been defying the odds since BIRTH. Her lack of a comfort zone and ability to connect with those around her create for a show experience that leaves the audience buzzing with positive energy. A childhood love of country music & her enthrallment with the NYC surf-scene during her early twenties, directly contribute to the catchy hooks, lyrical stories and electrified, pedal-popped ukulele melodies that drive her music.
After many years of story-telling through dance, film and theater, Leigh now finds herself expressing musically, between alternative-pop, broadway and americana, in a way that is all her own.
✻ ABOUT PEYTON STILLING ✻
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.
Originally formed in Denton, the roots of The Herald are deep in the heart of Texas. Members met at the University of North Texas and have been on a creative journey ever since. Pushing the boundaries of Indie Alt Rock while implementing a psychedelic progressive feel in their music, the band is fully focused on being unique.
“Liz Phair hanging out with The Beatles, circa 1968. The honeyed vocals of lead singer Amber Nicholson give a warmth to the group’s ’90s-era vibe, while the band adds trippy touches on guitars and keys that sound fresh off The White Album.” – THE REVUE
