A self-described “tree-hugger that watches NASCAR, and Buddhist 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 is a regular performer at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, Okemah OK. The 30A Songwriters Festival, and The Florida, Will McLean, & Gamble Rogers Folk Festivals. Grant spent over a decade living on a small island off the Miskito Coast of Nicaragua. During his US absence (1995-2006), while our country was surging ahead into lifestyle changes bordering on futuristic, Grant was installing the island’s first flushing toilet, digging his own well, and rescuing sea turtles on Little Corn Island. He returned in 2006 to a homeland going through economic, social, and political upheaval. Much of his writing is in response to what he found on his return.
Grant has made eight studio records. They include a trilogy produced by Gurf Morlix, and his latest, also produced by Morlix, Settling Scores Vol. II., released earlier this year.

Chris Lee Beckeris a singer/songwriter living right here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Chris Lee Becker is a true folk singer with a perspective on the world that looks beyond the surface and sees and hears what many miss, and that is the disenfranchised, the misfits, the ones who don't aspire to "Make America Great Again", because they are too busy just trying to put one foot in front of another. His characters, though, do get up and with grace and courage rise and face the day, and often we, the listener, are left better for having known them.
