Album preview – Peyton – ‘Sinners Got Soul Too’
IN 2003, American singer Christopher Peyton took the dance music world by storm with his first-ever hit A Higher Place which topped the UK dance charts and went on to become a classic anthem of House that is still loved by music lovers and DJ’s all over the world.
Peyton went on to work with many of the biggest names and labels in dance music and has released countless records, earning himself a strong global fan base bolstered by his extensive LIVE appearances at clubs, events and festivals all over the world.
By 2015 he had already begun work on a very special album project which was to be a departure from the House music style he is currently so well-known for. He began writing the songs for ‘Sinners Got Soul Too,’ his new album out tomorrow.
But what many people may not know Peyton also took a leap into the unknown and auditioned for The X Factor UK. Performing an acoustic version of a song that he had released in 2004, I’ll Rise, the judges gushed and praised Peyton for being the real deal, and Simon Cowell described him as ‘just incredible’ and ‘pure class.’ The press quickly clocked on to the fact that this was no ordinary artist. Despite bowing out in the live finals when Sharon Osbourne chose the much-maligned Honey G over him, the overwhelming support that poured in for Peyton was incredible. He now had a die-hard army of new fans begging him to release an album.
And now he has with the release of ‘Sinners Got Soul Too’ – a truly special album with beautiful soaring vocals and elements of Gospel and Soul that will have you hooked.
