David R. Peoples
New POETRY BOOK
Known for his music, David Peoples is venturing into new territories with these set of poems. Much has been written about the Holocaust; with many point of views presented. These fictional narratives (but, based loosely on actual survivors) narratively speak to us from the perspective of a child surviving some of the (almost unspeakable) atrocities committed by humankind.
The author has worked with children for decades— and brings the imagination, innocence, and strength he has observed in our little treasures. It is David’s hope that we will remember to love and protect little ones; but, also to remember the sacrifices children made during the Holocaust.

Since I was younger, I adored music. It was all I wanted to do. Today, I live that dream as a composer, teacher, and overall musician. I love breathing life into an audience by flirting with the unexpected and helping performers sound awesome. My voice is unlimited - I feel at home in small groups, large groups, or unexpected groups in any place I can perform for others. I am enjoying life near Atlanta, I especially enjoy cold ginger ales on warm summer afternoons out on my balcony surrounded by pine trees, birds, and butterflies (the workshop where I compose).
Experience New Music
As a Composer, I love sharing what I do with the world. I’ve developed many relevant skills; from composing for film to composing for symphonies around the world, I do it all. I am always looking for new opportunities and collaborations. I had the fortunate opportunity to study at great schools with great composers (RCC with Charlie Richard, UT Austin with John Mills, University of Memphis with Jack Cooper, Jim Richens and Kamran Ince). The list of collaborations continues to grow, and I am deeply humbled by the musicians and audiences I have worked with over the years.
