Enigmatic Canadian country singer, Orville Peck has released his debut single and music video for “Big Sky”. On top of this, the track is off his upcoming debut album, due for release in 2019, which he has just signed a deal with Sub Pop and Royal Mountain for the release.
“Big Sky” is a grim ballad led by Orville Peck’s rich baritone vocals and accented with an electric guitar with a tone – reminiscent of an old Cowboy film – that cuts through the sparse nature of the track.
Orville Peck will tour extensively in 2019, beginning with two Canadian dates, and followed by a three-date London residency February 28th-March 2nd, shows in Amsterdam on March 5th and Berlin on March 6th. Then in May, he will support Lord Huron with a string of midwest-southwestern US dates May 6th-May 12th.
I’m Gerrod, a Toronto based writer and musician. As soon as I started drumming, music became one of my greatest passions. Since then, I have also picked up the guitar, bass, and a hint of the piano. I am currently studying music and education at York University, and drum in a local hard rock band, One In The Chamber. This puts me right in the heart of Toronto’s growing music scene.
