Describing her music as “part folk, part pop, part chamber music, part glitter, part beeswax, and only part human”, Stella Peach is proud to announce the October 28th release of her first full-length album, Wisdom Teeth.

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: I’m not a huge fan of the word ‘crazy’, but the most eccentric and interesting person I know is one of my students, Myles, age 4, who can only learn violin if we both pretend to be robots during lessons
SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Hot Knife” by Fiona Apple
5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Stevie Knicks, Arthur Russell, bell hooks, Meredith Monk, Rihanna
MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Most recently: watching St. Vincent crowdsurf–she does it in 4″ heels while shredding, and she can do all these backflip/rollover moves–she’s like a femme power tornado touching down on the crowd every couple of beats
I WROTE THIS SONG: I think a lot about death as rebirth, about endings as beginnings, about how things seem dead in winter but are really just waiting. I feel a shift happening in the world right now, and I live in Oakland, CA, where there’s often the feeling in the air that revolution is just around the corner. The song form is like a palindrome, and it’s performed in loops–the end is always the just the beginning.
