Musician, DJ, producer and filmmaker Peaches has been captivating and changing the pop culture landscape since the release of her debut album in 2000. The Teaches of Peaches, was her first breakthrough statement, followed by her second LP, Fatherfucker. Impeach my Bush further infused the sexual and political into pop territory. Peaches’ fourth album, I Feel Cream, cemented her longevity with her biggest evolutionary leap to date. Over the years, Peaches has built a reputation on her suggestive and intelligent lyrics with her musical and stylistic influences continuing to be seen and heard in artists around the world, from mainstream to underground.
Peaches Does Herself is directed and written by Peaches. In the film, Peaches follows the advice of an old stripper and makes sexually forthright music. The electro rock opera chronicles Peaches' rise in popularity and her love affair with a beautiful Shemale that ultimately leads her to realize who she really is.
