Emerging artist Whitney Peyton has paid her dues. Team Underdog.

The suburbs of Philly, PA aren’t exactly known for producing 5-foot something, lady lyrical powerhouses with pink hair and infectious punk rock attitudes.

But that’s exactly what makes emerging hip-hop artist Whitney Peyton so unique.  She has a chance to stand her ground and emerge from obscurity like fellow PA artists, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.

But that’s exactly what makes emerging hip-hop artist Whitney Peyton so unique.  She has a chance to stand her ground and emerge from obscurity like fellow PA artists, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.

Over the last few years Peyton has been completely DIY, building her fan base from the ground up through a series of compelling song releases and music videos that have achieved over 300,000 views due to directly engaging with her fans. She has an edge, style, and sound that breathes authenticity.

In a world of saturation where a new song or music video is posted to YouTube every two minutes, Whitney Peyton has fought her way to the top to command respect and distance herself from parody.  She doesn’t apologize for who she is and can hold her own, as evident in this freestyle battle recently featured on The Marsten House | Cypher Circuit.


 

Peyton recently caught the eye of artist manager Zach Yoshioka of Powerline Management who signed her to a deal. Since then things have progressed quickly as she was flown out to Phoenix, AZ to open up for Asking Alexandria and to collaborate with talented producer Matt Good (Good Sounds | From First, To Last). She is proving that her style of music can cross genres and appeal to a latitude of fans.

Though she stands on her own two feet, if we had to draw a comparison, I’d put in her in the category of Machine Gun Kelly and G-Eazy when they released their first EPs and mixtapes before signing with major labels.  She has the same tenacity, work ethic and lyrical prowess that has made those MCs successful. The question is, does she have what it takes to break the frame and take her music to the next level? This is the story of Whitney Peyton.
