A masked country crooner who wants to remain anonymous may not be your typical country artist. Especially if you consider that he sings about love and lusts between men. As he told Billboard: “Willie Nelson said it best – ‘Cowboys are frequently secretly fond of each other; what did you think all them saddles and boots was about?’ Of course I play that up.” Still, Orville Peck is one of the most promising acts in this genre right now.
Orville Peck likes to be a man of mystery, he don’t want to reveal too much of himself or his background. Earlier this year he released his debut album Pony on the classic Sub Pop label. There’s drama and romance to his songs, sung in a beautiful vibrato. You’ll hear traces of Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline, you’ll hear the old west in a new world full of lost souls. His performance at Stay Out West will be his first show in Sweden.
