Available languages: EnglishA self-styled "outlaw cowboy," Orville Peck is a purposefully enigmatic performer whose music fuses elements of goth, shoegaze, and indie rock with grand-scale vocals and iconography that honors classic country music from the '50s and '60s. Performing on-stage with an elaborate mask, Peck's music and image at once embrace and subvert the accepted tropes of Western culture, while his strong, melodramatic voice keeps the music rooted without letting the subtle ironies of the songs overpower the performances. Peck made a splashy debut with his 2019 debut album, Pony. In his public statements, Orville Peck reveals few details about his life off-stage, preferring to talk about his influences (including Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton) and his musical approach. Peck has said that he lived in many cities around the world and toured extensively with punk rock bands before embracing his identity as a cowboy. He began acknowledging his country music influences with the release of his song "Dead of Night" in 2017. In January 2019, Sub Pop announced the upcoming release of the first Orville Peck album by posting a David Lynch-inspired video for his debut single, an upgraded version of "Dead of Night," with a second, equally surreal video for "Turn to Hate" following in February. The album Pony arrived in March 2019. Pony received enthusiastic reviews, and in Canada it was nominated for Alternative Album of the Year at the Juno Awards and was long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize. Peck also found himself breaking into the entertainment mainstream in the United States, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and at the Coachella music festival as well as its country-themed counterpart, Stagecoach. In 2020, Peck signed with Columbia Records. His first EP for the label, Show Pony, included the track "Legends Never Die," a duet with country-pop superstar Shania Twain.

Hi-Res Onderscheidingen Qobuzism
The album cover is intriguing; Stetson on his head, mask over his eyes and tasseled veil on the mouth. Orville Peck comes across as yet another ‘masked avenger’, camouflaged, helmeted, hidden, ready to join Daft Punk, Cascadeur, The Residents, MF Doom and other SBTRKT. Basically, the man has the appearance of a cowboy escaped from one of David Lynch’s dreams. He’s a kind of improbable version of the Lone Ranger, the fictional character who appeared in a radio soap opera in 1933, then in a television series fifteen years later: A true icon of American pop culture ... When Peck finally opens his mouth, his voice is that of a timeless crooner. There is a touch of Elvis, Roy Orbison, Chris Isaak, Lloyd Cole and Marlon Williams in this typical lover-voice that Orville Peck never overdoes. With Pony, his debut album and Qobuzissime under the excellent label Sub Pop, this mysterious man of unknown origin and unknown age, connects staggered romantic ballads and dreamy laments. Great songs are draped in production where reverb, twang guitars, cotton drums and impressionist steel-guitar reigns. It’s like country and shoegaze after a torrid night of love. Broken hearts, deserted motels, infinite highways and faded western landscapes, this is a beautiful record that reveals Orville Peck to be the talented painter of a fascinating picture. All that’s left to do is close your eyes and dream with him. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
