Hopeless women, guys who are sons of bitches, lost souls, lust filled thoughts, a burning desire, and a unspoken love, sometimes also a lost love, cheaters, liars, the fever of a full moon, tempters and temptresses, naive people and jealous lovers, crazy women, old perverts, goldfishes, melancholic souls, ... There are not enough words to describe the repertoire of De Peet. Although one thing is for certain: happyness is out of reach most of the time. He gives a perspective on sorrow and love from a different angle, and is in that manner an inspiration for what is important in a human live.

He makes you a part you of his stories and histories. He describes what could have been happening to you, he gives you advice and heals if needed.

The singer, songwriter, guitar and harmonica player uses everthing what is known as rootsmusic to tell his story. Think Blues, Rock & Roll, Soul, Country, ... He uses a classic but not an ordinary approach to reach his goal.

De Peet is known for his doing things his way as a performer and his authentic singing style.

Big examples: Tom Waits, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Johnny Cash, The Hicks Brothers, Blind Willie Mc Tell, J.B. Lenoir, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Captain Beefheart, King Khan, Lazy Lester, Bo Diddley, Jerry Butler, Mississippi John Hurt, Tampa red, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Little Milton, James Cotton...
