PreSonus Fam Friday with Peyton McMahon

27/04/2019

It's that time again PreSonus Fam Friday! Introducing one of the newest and most talented members to the PreSonus team-Peyton McMahon! Not only is he super-rad addition to the team, he's a hard-working singer-songwriter and PreSonus user! Random fact: Once he performed alongside the ORIGINAL American Idol, Kelly Clarkson at one of her shows. Get to know Peyton here and check out his latest single out today!

How long have you worked for PreSonus?

I've been here six months.

What's your official job title?

Inside Sales Coordinator.

What's your favorite thing about your job? Why did you choose to work here

I love getting to learn more about both studio and live equipment. As an artist, it has been super beneficial for me to get more educated on this stuff and it's going to serve me well in the future! That's one of the main reasons I chose to work here, it is helpful to my craft.

What was the first 8 track, cassette, CD or digital download you purchased?

Middle of Nowhere by Hanson when I was 5. ZERO shame. (And FYI, those guys are ridiculously talented and still put out some great music.)

via GIPHY

Who's your go-to band or artist when you can't decide on something to listen to?

It totally depends and changes often, but lately it's been James Bay. He's got a great variety of stuff that always levels out my mood, and I love his voice.

What's your go-to Karaoke song?

If I'm ever doing karaoke, it's probably been a long night of drinking, I have to have someone up there with me, and I never try to be serious with it It usually ends up being Hello, by Lionel Richie, Since U Been Gone, by Kelly Clarkson, or Hero from the Spiderman soundtrack.

Everyone has a side gig, what's yours? OR when you're not at PreSonus, what are you up to?

I'm a pop/rock singer/songwriter, so I'm always doing the typical aspiring artist hustle Writing, recording, playing gigs, researching, online stuff, etc.

What instruments do you play? What do you love about them?

I play guitar, piano, and I sing. I love both guitar and piano because they're so easy to sit down and write songs with. Starting with just piano/guitar and vocals is all you need to get down the base of the song, and the possibilities from there production-wise are limitless.

Why did you choose this as your favorite?

I love the Eris 3.5s because they're such great quality sound for such a great price and easy size. They're also versatile Great for both elevating your everyday music listening as well as listening to mixes for music you might be working on.

What are you currently working on at PreSonus? What's next for you?

Releasing and promoting my new single, out TODAY, and continuing to write and record my upcoming EP!

What's the strangest talent you have?

I have a really weird knack for remembering vivid details in memories. Like, I can remember specific dates and details for memories in my life, down to what I and others were wearing.

Anything else you want to share?

I have a new single out TODAY called Liberate Me, and y'all should check it out on Spotify/Apple Music/wherever you listen to music!

Follow Peyton on Instagram here!

Grab you a pair of the Eris 3.5s here!
