You came to see a rock show...
On the advice of a 65 year old stripper, Peaches makes music that is sexually forthright. Her popularity grows and she becomes what her fans expect her to be, Transsexual. She falls in love with a beautiful Shemale but Peaches gets her heart broken and has to realize who she really is.
Described as an anti jukebox musical or the jukebox musical that got a sex change.
Peaches wrote, directed and played the role of Peaches, herself.
Known for her Gender bender provocation she has inspired and shaped the mainstream into a more inclusive and sexually progressive surrounding. Over the years, she’s built a reputation on her suggestive and intelligent lyrics, her amalgamation of rock and electro sounds and her balls-out performances, continuing to outdo herself with each brash step.
Peaches has released 4 albums to date. She has toured the world extensively from 2000- 2012. Aside from her featured appearances on the latest albums from R.E.M., Christina Aguilera and the Flaming Lips, Peaches has been a keynote speaker and guest lecturer at institutions like NYU and the University of Toronto.
Peaches has recently focused on Theatrical production. she conceived and performed Peaches Does Herself, a quasi-autobiographical, career-chronicling theatrical production. In Peaches Christ Superstar, peaches directed and performed the complete musical Jesus Christ Superstar as a one woman show with Gonzales on piano accompaniment. In 2012, Peaches broke new ground by starring as Orfeo in Monteverdi’s 1607 Italian opera and standing out as the only classically untrained cast member.
