Nashville-based Americana quintet Great Peacock are part of a pedigree of a barrage of alt-country acts that have emerged since the 1990s, including Whiskeytown, Uncle Tupelo, The Bottle Rockets and The Bad Livers. Although many of the aforementioned acts are now obsolete, Great Peacock is a relatively young band. Following up from a self-titled EP released in 2013, the band released their full length LP Making Ghosts in 2015. Their modest yet sophisticated harmonies are attractive to those who remember the heyday of folk and Americana, in addition to newer fans who might not have been around in that period. With a sound that embodies both country and rock traditions, Great Peacock felt like a perfect fit for one of our studio sessions in our Manhattan office.
Great Peacock’s session recording is as fluid and triumphant as their LP Making Ghosts and shows that the band is just as comfortable with live performance as they are recording an LP. Lucinda Williams, The Eagles, Poco and The Mavericks all seem to have had a heavy influence on Great Peacock. Regardless if you are a fan of ‘70s country rock, or the ‘90s alt-country boom, you’ll definitely fall in love with the stylings of Great Peacock.
