Live in the Bear’s Den: Great Peacock ‘Take Me to the Mountain’
Nashville’s Great Peacock is on the road promoting their new album, ‘Making Ghosts’ and lucky for us, they stopped by the studio on their way to a gig.
Although they aren’t a contemporary country band, their style of country folk rock could go nicely next to Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Randy Houser, and Zac Brown Band on you playlist!
Great Peacock are a group of red-blooded country boys who aren’t afraid of the big city. Case in point: ‘Making Ghosts’ — the duo’s harmony-heavy, guitar-driven debut album — whose 11 songs find the middle ground between rootsy, down-home Americana and super-sized arena pop/rock.
Andrew Nelson, who shares lead vocals and guitar duties with co-founder Blount Floyd says,
To us, it’s just pop music with organic acoustic instruments. The album has some fiddle, some pedal steel and a whole lot of acoustic guitar, which sounds like the traditional setup for a country band. But this isn’t a country record. It’s not really a folk record, either. It’s a pop/record… with folk tendencies.
Here’s Great Peacock’s exclusive performance of ‘Take Me to the Mountain’ in our new Sealy Realty studios…
