More About Orville Peck
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Orville Peck (pseudonym) moved to London to study acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and even starred in a play on the West End. However, growing up, he trained in ballet for 12 years and performed in musical theatres. By 20, he had already stepped into national tours of musicals.
The country singer self-produced his debut album, Pony, and released it in 2019 through a collaboration with Sub Pop. The album receievd a Juno Award nomination in 2020. In 2022, Peck revealed about his latest album “Bronco”:
“This is my most impassioned and authentic album to date. I was inspired by country rock, the ’60s and ’70s psychedelic, California and bluegrass with everything being anchored in the country. Bronco is all about being unrestrained and the culmination of a year of touring, writing in isolation and going through and ultimately emerging from a challenging personal time.”
The artist with a fringed mask is known for his “deep baritone voice, strong musicianship and songs that are sincere yet bold in their storytelling.” “All I ever wanted to do was be a country singer,” Peck, who’s openly gay, said in a June 2022 interview. “I finally got the courage when I was in my 20s to put all of the things I love together and just do the dang thing.”
Peck has developed a huge fanbase over the years, especially with the release of his second album “Bronco”. Last year, he performed at the Coachella, Stagecoach and Boston Calling music festivals. In 2021, Orville opened two “Harryween” shows for Harry Styles at Madison Square Garden.
