A self-described "vegetarian that watches NASCAR, and tree-hugger with a gun below the seat," Grant Peeples is known for his axe-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." He was a 2016 Finalist in the prestigious New Folk Songwriters Showcase, sponsored by Kerrville Folk Festival.
Third Coast Magazine's John Conquest says "Peeples is unusually literate, unusually honest. And the only songwriter I have ever called 'ruthless.'"
Grant has made seven studio records. Including a trilogy produced by Gurf Morlix. His newest record, "A Congress of Treasons," was released in February, 2016
Annie Oakley is an all-girl Americana band founded by Oklahoma City singer-songwriters Sophia and Grace Babb. Their music and compelling harmonies have a soulful, indie-folk feel that has been described as coming "straight from the heart."
The Americana music the sisters write and play combines elements of folk, bluegrass, country, indie, and soul. It seems to grow from Oklahoma's red clay-and no wonder, since the sisters descend from pioneer Land Run Okie stock on both sides of the family. High school seniors concurrently enrolled in college classes, the girls frequently perform with friends Nia Personette on violin, and Gabee Rolla-Danley or Frank Lawrence on mandolin.
