About Orville Peck · Toronto, ON
Amiable Toronto-based country crooner and self-styled "outlaw cowboy," Orville Peck is a purposefully enigmatic performer whose music fuses goth, shoegaze, and indie rock with iconography that honours classic '50s and '60s country music. Donning a cowboy hat and fringed leather bondage mask, Peck's music and image at once embrace and subvert accepted Western culture tropes.
Back in the saddle with a brand new full-length album "Bronco" (April 8 via Columbia Records) and riding the momentum of his first full length release, 2019's "Pony", few have seen their star rise as quickly as Orville Peck. Don't let the mask fool you — Peck wears his heart on his cut-off sleeves, taking the listener down desert highways, through a world where worn out gamblers, road-dogs, and lovesick hustlers drift in and out of his masked gaze. From red rhinestones to red carpets, Peck has leveraged his multi-octave musical chops and undeniably infectious aesthetic to become one of country music's most beloved outlaws.
