Peachkit is a modern pop/alternative artist who subscribes to the way creating music used to be — when the focus was not on making tabloid headlines, but on the music itself. The largely-anonymous artist, producer, and songwriter recently came to Nashville from the United Kingdom and is already making a splash: her single, “Like It (A Lot),” stood out among a strong field of 140 submissions to win the second edition of Songtank, a Songland-meets-Shark Tank broadcast competition from Helping Our Music Evolve (HOME).
Among her many accolades, Peachkit has multiple number one writing credits to her name. As an artist, she combines her knack for writing chart-topping hooks with raw honesty and social commentary to create her own brand of “Thinking Pop” — and she does it all while rarely, if ever, showing her face.
All told, Peachkit is a brilliant, world-aware creative soul who lets her music do the talking — and certainly, there is plenty of room for her voice! She’s truly in a league of her own, and we’re fortunate to have had the chance to chat in-depth. Check out the full convo below!Meet Peachkit
Once a month, we are partnering with Helping Our Music Evolve (HOME) in East Nashville to feature an artist who is enrolled in the organization’s Elite Artist Program, which teams recording artists with HOME’s Verified Producers and other business professionals to accelerate the process of creating and monetizing their music.
This month, we’re excited to feature Taylor Bickett. The musical storyteller is breaking barriers left and right — musically, her unique compositions present her truth in genre-bending fashion. In addition, Taylor recently had the honor of being crowned the first-ever female winner of Lightning 100’s Music City Mayhem tournament.
One thing is for sure: Taylor Bickett is fearlessly marching toward her dreams, and there’s no keeping her — or her creativity — in a box. Learn about Taylor and her future aspirations, and then treat yourself to her latest single, “Green,” when you reach the bottom!

On Wednesday night, our community partners at Helping Our Music Evolve hosted a ‘HOME School’ panel discussion, featuring three Nashville-area entertainment attorneys who discussed some of the most common pitfalls they see when helping the music community navigate their legal hurdles:
- Artist and band name trademarks.
- Clearance, sometimes holding up — or even nullifying — record deals or licensing agreements.
- Splits and reconciliation, including accounting errors of collaborators and companies.
- Protecting intellectual property — especially now, that there is so much remote work.
- Force Majeure and COVID’s impact on the importance of this standard clause.
Watch this replay featuring HOME founder Logan Crowell and special guest panelists Colin Maher, Ryan Noormohamed, and Zach Gainous, who share insight and information that will help you prepare your music business for the best possible future outcomes.Watch the Replay!
