PEACH: FLORIDA’S THE BEST KEPT SECRET

Hailing from Orlando, Florida born under the astrological sign of Leo (The Queen), Peach has been singing since her early childhood. At the tender age of four she totally shocked all in attendance at Pleasantview Missionary Baptist Church when she entered into their local talent show. Everyone was so surprised that such a strong voice could come from this young child. From there she would go on under the guise of two of her most endeared teachers, Mr. Notary and Mrs. Wadsworth to study many different styles of music including Calypso, Rock, pop, jazz, musicals and songs from Disney soundtracks. Her love of music led her to begin writing poems, and then hooks and eventually complete lyrical compositions.

Throughout her early years in high school her love for music remained but the passion had somehow began to fade as she experienced the issues that adolescents have to deal with. However, by the time that she graduated those very experiences would serve as a catalyst for her return to song writing and performing. To this day she credits her inspiration for writing and performing from all types of music, sounds, past and current situations and just plain old everyday living.  As one listens to her compositions the listener may easily find a song for every mood and situation they may come across. As she delivers each of her selections with heartfelt emotion, passion and exuberance that only experience can provide. In her spare time she loves to write, read books, and exercise.
