Billboard's March Country Rookie of the Month Peytan Porter talks about her new EP

On Georgia native Peytan Porter’s six-song, sophomore EP Grown, out Friday (March 1), she sheds light on a creative revival, the culmination of dismantling — then rebuilding — her sound to reveal her true self.

“This past six to 12 months has been just reclaiming my entire life and setting myself on a really good direction,” she tells Billboard.

Porter’s music career gained traction not long after her 2020 graduation from Nashville’s Lipscomb University, where she studied public relations. A year later, she signed a publishing deal with Jody Williams Songs and Warner Chappell Nashville and saw her song “Therapy” go viral on TikTok. She followed with her pop-country debut 2022 EP In My Head. But while her debut only showcased one dimension of her musical abilities, Porter says Grown, which she is releasing independently, feels more akin to who she is. The album is lush with introspective lyrics and gauzy, Laurel Canyon vibes.
