The Peptides are an Ottawa-based, nine-member band…..five vocalists and four instrumentalists, producing a distinctive larger-than-life pop sound. The Peptides are known for their high energy, extravagant and colourful, live performances…..their music an eclectic mix of funk, soul, folk, gospel, Latin and new wave sound.
A snapshot of Canadian diversity, The PepTides is a community of girls and guys, LGBTQ and straight, English and French; black, white and in between, Ukrainian, Mexican, Guyanese, Cree, Acadian, Armenian and Scottish. I had the opportunity to see them during Indie Week in Toronto a few years back. If I had the chance, I’d go back to see them again in a heartbeat.
