When the Santa Clarita Valley Signal newspaper launched its Sunday news magazine on July 22, 2018, it also marked the premiere of longtime Santa Clarita journalist Stephen K. Peeples‘ weekly spotlight on artists soon to appear at the Canyon Santa Clarita club at the Town Center Mall in Valencia.

Peeples was a news and features writer, copy desk editor, opinion page editor, entertainment reporter and award-winning online editor at The Signal from 2004-2011 (check out the archives for scores of his stories from 2008-2011; for pre-February 2008 stories, we thank the Wayback Machine, since Signal owners didn’t renew the domain).
