K.W. Peery- Lyricist & Poet

WP-kevin-peeryWhat is your creative mission?

Relevance in this mythical realm.


What do you love about what you do?

Meaningful connectivity with folks who dig my rhythmical delivery.


What have you learned from your successes/ failures?

Celebrating and then releasing failures allow this old man to get back on track much faster than I used to. Success reinforces the importance of consistency and echoes inner voices rooted in delusionary persistence.


How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?

I marinate in the hurt for as long as it takes me to finish a fifth…Then it’s time to be grateful for all the things given…that I’m certain I didn’t earn.


Have you ever encountered resistance from family, friends, or the world in general? How did you overcome those kinds of blocks?

I’ve come to accept that resistance is an illusion. I choose to love unconditionally…. And while it’s horribly difficult to buy in initially, it’s the only formula I prescribe to at this point in my life.


How has your art and creativity healed you?

I’m a huge fan of other folks’ work. I rely on past influences and future prospective genius to fuel my own fire.

What are your NFA Bullet points? What steps would you recommend for anyone who wants to kick some ass and get their creative dreams off the ground?

  • Drink better bourbon than you think you deserve.
  • Immersion in authentic till your very last word.
  • Don’t say things that folks expect.
  • Keep on dreamin’ …and ignore the rest
