Grammy award-winning record producer Charlie Peacock is back with a number of new singles released at the end of December 2020, including 'Faith, Hope & Love', 'Holding On and Letting Go (feat. Sarah Masen)' and 'When You Move Me (feat. Tony Miracle)'.
As the sonic architect behind best-selling music duo The Civil Wars, Peacock is largely known for his deft and moving productions, including “Misery Chain” by the late Chris Cornell from the soundtrack of Twelve Years a Slave and “Hush,” the title theme to the AMC drama Turn: Washington’s Spies featuring Joy Williams and The National’s Matt Berninger.
Though it’s been decades since legendary impresarios “Bill Graham and Chris Blackwell plucked him from the San Francisco punk/pop underground and pegged him for stardom” (Keyboard), Peacock has forged a varied career propelled by his curiosity. In 2014, Peacock explained it this way:
“I’ve always been after a lasting career - one that never peaks - just gets better. Artists I admire, like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Herbie Hancock have that kind of career story - basically a life of making music rooted in America, and that’s a music I know and love.”
“I was raised by a California-born, improvising trumpet-playing father whose grandfather was a Louisiana fiddler. Maybe that explains a little of my ability to move fluidly between several varieties of American music, whether it’s rooted in Hank Williams or Miles Davis.”
