Peyton Gilliland is a rising star in the rock scene, and at just 20 years old, she’s already worked with some of the biggest names in music production. Collaborating with Lincoln Parish (Cage the Elephant), Brian Chirlo (Amy Winehouse, Paramore, Snoop Dog), and Mads (Imagine Dragons), Gilliland is quickly making a name for herself. Her debut EP, “Lipstick & Lithium,” is set to drop in the fall of 2023, featuring the powerhouse lead single “Devil’s Daughter.”


Gilliland’s talent has already been recognized as a finalist in both the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition. Her latest project promises to deliver a lyrical punch with each guitar-driven track. With a voice that’s been described as “dripping with elan and nuanced timbres” (CelebMix), Peyton Gilliland is poised to make a big impact on the music world. Keep an ear out for this rising star!


Peyton Gilliland’s newest song “God Complex” is a powerful anthem for girls who have experienced mistreatment or disrespect from someone they once cared about. The lyrics convey a message of empowerment and taking control in the face of adversity, and more importantly: Turning the tables on them! . The song is a direct response to the toxic behavior of “F*** boys” who have no regard for the feelings of the women they pursue.


In “God Complex,” Gilliland turns the tables on these individuals by using their own tactics against them. She sings about manipulating and controlling them in the same way they try to do to others. The song is a call to action for anyone who has been hurt by someone who thinks they’re better than everyone else, urging them to stand up for themselves and take back their power.


“… I’m in my villain era right now with everything from the production to the lyrics of this new music, and it feel fantastic to show off this sassy, don’t give a F*** what you think attitude.”


It is unfortunate that some men disregard women’s feelings and use them for selfish reasons. Such behavior is not only disrespectful, but it can also be emotionally damaging to the women involved. The song takes no time to lament, adopting instead a strong, and confrontational attitude that just probably feels fair, cathartic and exhilarating.
