Spitting stories of love, loss and pain, Nashville’s Great Peacock challenge the very notion of genre, dismantling tradition and blurring the lines between rock ‘n roll, conventional folk music and true Americana. Having earned praise from Rolling Stone, Paste, the Nashville Scene, American Songwriter, No Depression, Relix and PopMatters, the band ignites a kind of unapologetic spark. As fixtures on the road, from clubs to juke-joints to festivals, they’ve shared stages with an abundance of equaly-minded noise-makers including Jason Isbell, The Revivalists, American Aquarium, Margo Price, The Infamous Stringdusters, yonder mountain string band, SUSTO and Jonathan Tyler.
On their latest LP Gran Pavo Real, the band spread their wings and easily glide intobolder territory - without sacrificing their genre-bending artist stamp, of course. Amer-icana music is a state of mind, a way of living fraught with stories of heartache, lonesomeness and desperation. That is certainly the case for Great Peacock, whose style is an amalgam of American design bred of southern tradition.
